Lenovo ThinkPad P50s Review and Specifications

May 1, 2020

The Lenovo ThinkPad P50s, though probably the slim model in its line-up, is chunky for 2016. The longer you use the ThinkPad P50s, however, the more it should start to feel a little more reasonable. The ThinkPad P50s should be judged on its own merits as a Windows 10 laptop that wasn’t meant to fill the same roles as a slim and light productivity machine.

It’s hard to hold a bulky workstation on the street, but the Lenovo ThinkPad P50s (beginning at $839; $1,537 as examined) is Lenovo’s effort to mix portability and performance. It weighs just 5 pounds, which is light for a laptop of this size and excellent for road warriors. However, it eschews a highly efficient Intel Xeon CPU for a Core i7 (although you still get a Nvidia Quadro M500M GPU with 2GB VRAM for AutoCAD or Photoshop). Whether the Lenovo ThinkPad P50s is for you depends on how much power you want versus how often you’ll want to take the machine away from your desk.
