Stable workstation with ultrabook CPU.

Lenovo's ThinkPad P53s combines a workstation with a low price

You don't always have to pay 2,000 Euros (~$2,213) or more for laptops with a graphics card specialized in applications. With the ThinkPad P53s and Nvidia's Quadro P520 GPU, Lenovo shows that it can be cheaper.
