Lenovo P50s overview

  • 1Description

Thin at 0.88" and weighing 4.97 lb, the 15.6" ThinkPad P50s Mobile Workstation from Lenovo brings the power of a workstation to the mobile and portable form factor of a notebook. This system is powered by a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U Dual-Core processor that allows you to run multiple applications simultaneously. Using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, the processor is capable of boosting to 3.1 GHz if more power is needed. The 16GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs.

The 15.6" IPS display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution, 250 cd/m2 brightness, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and is protected by a PPS cover. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro M500M graphics card has 2GB of discrete VRAM and delivers a sharp, clear picture. You'll also be able to output video to an external display using the system's Mini DisplayPort and HDMI ports.

For storage of your files, this ThinkPad P50s is equipped with a 256GB SSD which provides quick access to your data. While the SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of a traditional spinning disk, it is able to operate with faster data transfer speeds and contains no moving parts, which helps it to be more resistant against bumps, drops, and other kinds of damage. SSDs also receive less wear and tear than traditional hard drives, as they never come into contact with read and write heads. Additionally, this SSD is outfitted with Opal 2 that secures your sensitive data with a hardware-based AES-256 encryption engine.

If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, printers, and more, there are three 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one of which is also an always-on charging port. Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are also built-in for wired and wireless networking and Bluetooth 4.1 technology will allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals such headsets and mice. So that content from memory cards may be accessed, a built-in 4-in-1 media card reader supports SD, SDHC, SDXC, and MMC cards and lets users download content from their digital camera. Other integrated features include a fingerprint reader, 720p webcam, dual-array microphones, and dual 1W stereo speakers powered by the Realtek ALC3245 HD Audio codec.

The 15.6" ThinkPad P50s Mobile Workstation includes a 65W AC adapter and two batteries - an integrated 3-cell / 44Wh Lithium-polymer battery and an external 3-cell / 23Wh battery, which when combined will last for up to 12 hours before recharging is required. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license is also included. Aside from the operating system, this workstation features two built-in mouse options, which are the TrackPoint and multi-touch touchpad. The TrackPoint pointing device lets you control the cursor without moving your hand from keyboard, while the button-less touchpad supports multi-touch gestures for zooming, scrolling, and more.

While the native 16GB memory configuration is 2 x 8GB, there are two 204-pin SO-DIMM slots, each of which supports up to 16GB of 1600 MHz PC3-12800 DDR3L RAM, for a maximum memory configuration of 32GB
USB 3.0
The ThinkPad P50s has three USB 3.0 ports which operate at speeds of up to 5 Gb/s. One of these ports also serves as an always-on charging port

The system uses a Gigabit Ethernet controller for Internet access when connected to a router, modem, or network switch. It also features Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 which is compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi so that users may access network connectivity using wireless technology
Bluetooth 4.1
Additional compatible peripherals, such as mice, keyboards, headsets, and more may be paired using Bluetooth 4.1 technology
