Lenovo ThinkPad P51s overview

  • 1Description

Thin at 0.8" and weighing 4.39 lb, the 15.6" ThinkPad P51s Mobile Workstation from Lenovo delivers the power of a workstation and the mobility of an Ultrabook. It is powered by a 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7-7600U dual-core processor which allows you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the system can be overclocked to 3.9 GHz using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 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 3840 x 2160 screen resolution, an anti-glare finish, LED-backlighting, a 16:9 aspect ratio, a contrast ratio of 1000:1, a brightness of 300 cd/m2, and viewing angles of 170°. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro M520M graphics card has 2GB of discrete GDDR5 RAM and delivers a sharp, clear picture. You'll also be able to output video to up to three external displays at resolutions up to 4096 x 2304 @ 60 Hz using the system's HDMI 1.4b and Thunderbolt 3 ports, the latter of which supports DisplayPort 1.2.

For long-term storage of your files, this ThinkPad P51s is equipped with a 256GB NVMe M.2 SSD, which offers fast access to your data and system boot times. The drive also secures sensitive data with a hardware-based AES-256 encryption engine, which self-encrypts data on the fly. If you'd like to expand your system's internal storage, there is also one 2.5" bay to accommodate an optional hard drive or SSD.

If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the ThinkPad P51s offers one 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 port that also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C. There are also three 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one of which doubles as a charging port. Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are also built-in for wired and wireless networking, and Bluetooth 4.1 technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. Memory cards may be accessed via a built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC card reader that supports UHS-I flash media. Other integrated features include a IR webcam, dual-array microphones, and stereo speakers.

The ThinkPad P51s Mobile Workstation includes a 65W AC adapter, a power cord, an integrated 4-cell / 32Wh lithium-polymer battery, and an external 3-cell / 24Wh lithium-polymer battery, both of which provide a total of up to 13.8 hours of use before recharging is required. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Professional (64-bit).

General Features

ThinkPad P51s Mobile Workstation

Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum bi-directional throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to simultaneously connect two 4K displays or one 5K display. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
Up to 32GB RAM
The ThinkPad P51s supports up to 32GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM when 16GB modules are used in both of its 260-pin SO-DIMM slots.
Up to Three Simultaneous Displays
The ThinkPad P51s supports up to three simultaneous displays. Using the Thunderbolt 3 pot, a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2304 @ 60 Hz is supported, while the HDMI 1.4b port supports a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz.
3 x USB 3.0 Type-A Ports
The three 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports can be used to add peripherals such as external storage, optical drives, printers, memory card readers, and more.
Gigabit Ethernet & 802.11ac Wi-Fi
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. While the Intel 8265ac card supports Bluetooth 4.2, Windows limits it to Bluetooth 4.1.
Mobile Broadband (WWAN) Upgradable
Mobile broadband functionality can be added using a Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE-A (Sierra Wireless EM7455) card or an Intel XMM 7160 (Fibocom L831-EAU, EMEA only).

Windows 10 Professional (64-bit)

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
