Lenovo ThinkPad P71 Review: What Kind of Performance and Configurability Can Professionals Expect with This VR-Ready Workstation?

Whenever your job requires the power of a workstation but you still want the portability of a notebook, Lenovo is the brand to look to. With its fast connection speeds, Mil-Spec durability, high capacity of memory and storage, top-notch display technology, etc., the Lenovo ThinkPad P71 is the ideal workstation for professionals.

While you can save money by selecting the 17.3-inch FHD IPS (1920×1080) display, it’s recommended that you go with the 4K display, as it is the best money can buy. The latter works perfectly with VR headsets and any multimedia or photo editing program you want to work with. The 4K UHD display features X-Rite PANTONE color calibration to ensure the best image accuracy and precise color matching.

In addition to a great display, the P71 is also equipped with a great keyboard. Don’t worry about spilling anything on it in the middle of working, as it features spill-resistant keys. The CAD-focused touchpad is excellent as well.

Lenovo describes the P71 as being its “only VR-Certified ThinkPad”, as it gives users a performance capability that would typically be reserved for desktop PCs. NVIDIA also certifies this workstation as being VR-Ready (with 4000 and 5000 level graphics). You can select all the way up to a NVIDIA Quadro 16GB P5000 video card for your graphics needs.

The average laptop starts out with around 4GB of memory; this one starts out with 8GB and supports up to 64GB with 4 SODIMM slots. Get a fast SSD PCIe MLC OPAL 2 drive with a capacity of 256GB to 1TB. The battery is an eight-cell (96-WHr) unit and the power supply options include 170 W or 230 W. Connectivity is provided via WLAN Intel Dual Band Wireless (2×2) AC and Bluetooth 4.1 combo, although the Lenovo ThinkPad P71 is compatible with WWAN Qualcomm Snapdragon technology (X7 LTE-A). The integrated mobile broadband it comes with is upgradable.

Audio and Connections of the Lenovo ThinkPad P71

If any of your projects involve audio, make use of Dolby’s Audio Clarity and Home Theater. Enjoy a clear and crisp surround sound experience without any distortion through the built-in stereo speakers.

An integrated SD card reader (4-in-1) reads SD, MMC, SDHC, and SDXC. There are a total of four USB 3.0 ports, one of which is “always on” for charging external devices – even when the workstation is asleep. Use an external display or work on multiple displays simultaneously with the HDMI 1.4 and Mini DP 1.2 connections.

There’s no rule that says the 17.3-inch Lenovo ThinkPad P71 has to be “all work”. Take full advantage of its VR-readiness and use it for some fun as well.

Don’t allow yourself to be alarmed over the price. If you’re on a tight budget, you can still afford this workstation with Lenovo ThinkPad P71 promotional codes. All types of users – from professionals to students – can count on Lenovo to provide financing solutions.
