Lenovo ThinkPad P52s reviews

15.6" ThinkPad P52s Mobile Workstation is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine, fast and powerful I'm a designer who needs a reliable and fast machine for CAD and graphics work. Lenovo came very highly recommended from my old IT department and it hasn't let me down. It's very powerful and the weight is reasonable. Battery life seems excellent. I like Windows 10 a lot, but it takes me a while to uninstall all of the extra junk it comes with. But I finally have it set up the way I like it and it's been a dream to work on. Much better than my previous laptop. I think this is a great computer for designers like me who need something fast, reliable, and reasonably priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I had positive experiences with ThinkPad laptops before, and with the P52s this streak continues. I bought the base version with 512 GB SSD, because it already (over)achieved every criteria I had. As an engineering student I needed something that could run the CAD programs we use, and this computer did not fail to deliver. It is also very quiet when under light loads (the fan is basically off most of the time), which I really appreciate when doing everyday tasks. The battery life is awesome, it can easily last through a whole day even if left on constantly. The comfortable keyboard and overall sleek design are just the cherry on top. Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase and looking forward to using this laptop in the upcoming years. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Laptop with a few shortcomings! I bought this Laptop a few weeks ago, Great online experience customizing it. Modern hardware light and thin. Over all a great machine, but... Slow, looks like my laptop is lugging a bit. Do not know if this is the software problem or Hardware not being fine tuned. Could be blatware, or Windows 10 pro not liking Lenovo hardware or just cheap components inside this machine, I got latest core i7 processor, max ram, SSD hard drive. Too bad there is no option for better video card. Web cam is pretty good but I would prefer 1080 Vs 720P.The keyboard is not as nice as it used to be on the original Thinkpads but I guess it is OK. Sound could be better. I compared ASUS with Identical configuration but just 7th Generation of core i7 vs mine 8th Gen processor, and ASUS cost almost 2.5 times less. So the question is? Is the Lenovo P52S worth the price? To me it is an overpriced, but most people will enjoy beautiful 4K screen, Thin, light with great battery life good looking machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Avoid the 4K panel. Bought this pretty much maxed out, i7 8550, 32GB of RAM, 4K UHD display. What a disaster. The entire system chugged just scrolling through web pages, YouTube would drop frames, even Windows’ animations would stutter. It’s like the GPU can’t handle the display resolution. Meanwhile, my three year old Skylake system with half the RAM and a 1080p display cut those tasks like butter. Maybe the 1080p version will fare better, as I was in love with the build and aesthetics of the system. But I went 4K because I needed the color accuracy for 3D work. If this professional system can’t handle 4K web browsing, I can’t see it running 3D apps, or any professional tasks, at that resolution. Really disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great potential ruined by poor design decisions I bought this thing as I wanted a 4k 15" laptop and have been buying Thinkpads since the early 90s. One major consideration was that of NVMe PCIe SSD option, which according to the PSREF, can run with x4 lanes. This is not true. A diagram sent to me post-sale clearly shows only 2 lanes are available to the NVMe PCIe SSD slot. Honestly, I would have waited for the P52 had I known this. And like most long-time Thinkpad users, I hate the numkey pad. Not as bad as the stupid attempt to change the trackpad a few years back, but truly makes using the laptop awkward since you have to shift the whole laptop to the right or turn it in a weird way to use the homerow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Trapped between half-Workstation & half-Ultrabook I got this computer for work to replace my older Lenovo Workstation…In summary, the P52s it is light, and it has a big shinny touch screen but however it is not powerful enough to compete with my older W540. My P52s is stacked with i7-7600U low-power processor, 32GB RAM and 512GB SSD PCie 3.0, which is OK for average user but undersize for running complex engineering solutions or setting up VMs or other IT developer work. I expanded it with a second NGFF 256GB SATA drive, but still I am far from reaching the 2GB SSD SATA capability of my previous machine. PCIe SSD drive it is fast but small and extremely expensive to be upgraded, there is no extra space or SATA connector to change it into a SATA disk, also no option for more RAM. In Summary, it is a rare machine trapped in-between half-Work Station half-Ultrabook. As per Ultrabook, I kept my X260 (almost same power and RAM in much smaller form-factor), and unfortunately I am needing my older workstation for SSD space.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Super fast, but also super hot Bought it few weeks ago. Thanks to NVM drive it's blazing fast which is a big plus. It's getting super hot, often reaching 98 C, seems like thermal design can be improved. This will most likely make this laptop die faster than expected. It also did suspend itself few times when under heavy load (trying to play game). I'm not sure if it's some sort of protection from overheating or me doing something wrong. I have been using few Lenovo laptops before (X1 carbon, also older thinkpad series). The material finish is much worse on this one compared to others I used. Feels like cheap plastic in touch. They no longer claim what is it made from, or it's well hidden on their website. For comparison, X1 Carbon feels much better, is made from sort of metal or magnesium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good model I purchased this laptop for use in graduate school. I am a Math PhD student who does a lot of heavy computation, and this machine works wonders. The GPU is a bit underpowered given the cost of the machine, but I'm otherwise very impressed so far. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
