The ThinkPad P50 is the 15.6-inch offering, but offers a 4K resolution display with incredibly powerful Nvidia Quadro graphics. The processor is a mobile 6th Generation Intel Xeon processor, a chipset that’s only been announced so far as a series, with no specific CPU information as of yet.
The specs on the ThinkPad P70 are almost identical to the P50, with the exception of the display. Instead of a 15.6-inch screen, the P70 steps up to a 17-inch display, in either multi-touch 1080p, or 4K non-touch. Both machines also have enough room for three storage drives, so you can store tons of data, or set up your laptop in a RAID 0 or 1 array.
Connectivity is improved over most standard consumer laptops as well. Aside from four USB 3.0 ports, both laptops features HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, two Thunderbolt ports, Ethernet, 3.5mm in/out, a card reader, an ExpressCard slot, and a docking connector for when you finally settle down.
The machines aren’t intended for individual users who just want to play games or get work done, but the P50 starts at $1,599, and the P70 starts at just $1,999. Whatever you decide to use it for, you’ll get a healthy amount of performance for that price, and you can start shopping when they hit shelves in the fourth quarter of 2015.
