Lenovo ThinkPad P50 – Review

17
2



The “mobile workstation” is a special category of computer, one that has resisted the trends of the past five years. While mainstream laptops have focused on design, portability, and ease-of-use, workstations continue to prioritize performance and function, even at the expense of other traits.

That makes them the odd duck of modern laptops, and Lenovo’s ThinkPad P50 is a perfect example of why they’re strange. The recently re-designed system has a 15-inch display, is about an inch thick, and weighs in at 5.6 pounds. These figures make it about 40 percent heavier and thicker than Dell’s XPS 15, and almost twice the weight of Samsung’s new 15-inch Notebook 9. Compared to these alternatives, the ThinkPad P50 seems instantly outdated.

Yet the hardware is cutting edge. Our review unit came with an Intel Xeon E3-1505M quad-core processor, 16GB of RAM, and Nvidia Quadro M2000M graphics chip with 4GB of dedicated memory, and a 4K non-gloss, non-touch display. It also has some extras that not every user will appreciate, like a fingerprint sensor and a built-in color calibration camera.

  1. Don't get Lenovo Thinkpad's. The laptop is alright but the warranty is
    useless. I've waited for over a month to get my work P50 fixed. Tickets get
    opened and closed without the problem being fixed. The engineer has come
    out twice without the right parts. I call them up and they tell me
    someone will arrive to fix it by a certain date. The date arrives and
    nobody turns up. I had to waste a day to go to the head office to get
    the spare laptop. If it weren't for this being a company laptop under
    warranty, I could have taken it down to a dozen nearby computer repair
    shops and got it fixed within several days.

  2. Lenovo has the WORST customer service in the 17 years I am buying online.

    Read my post on reddit here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Lenovo/comments/5h8c0n/the_worst_customer_service_in_the_17_years_i_am/

  3. Nice video guys. You should add to your review how terrible Lenovo customer service is. I have ordered the P50 because of Mobile Tech Review and this video and I am going through the worst customer service experience of my life.

    NEVER and I say NEVER purchase anything from Lenovo before you google Lenovo Customers Service problems/ horror stories etc. Go on reddit and check what people are saying. I have wasted time and money for a product that I will probably never receive.

    Just terrible, and I am writing this on a Lenovo machine.

  4. if you are interested in the P50, I am selling mine through Amazon (I am happy but I am totally underutilizing this powerful machine): https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B01GSBRXB8/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used

  5. I do not understand how even in 2016 a laptop can be so heavy, so huge and so poorly designed. My university sponsors this one for me so I only pay half, but it is so bulky and old-looking.
    Personally not at all a fan of a tracking point and the second set of mouse buttons, the word "ThinkPad" in an angle in the corner just completely ruins the look of it.
    Rounded keys, stuffed with pictograms, cheap looking plastic. Come on Lenovo, I know the inside matters more than the outside, but this is just not good looking at all.

  6. How can a digital news website give such a superficial review and compare a mobile workstation to Dell xps 15 or Apple Macbook pro? It's crazy, the review seems to be incompetent at all!

  7. What do you think about the screen (4k)? Backlight bleeding etc? a lot of people are angry about the screens, especially the FHD Panels, in the P50 and P70

  8. The XPS15 is not the direct competitor of the P50 – that would be the Precision 7510 (due to flexibility, size/weight, CPU/GPU options, ram and storage, business-features, etc.) . Lenovo doesn't really have a "Quad-Core Ultrabook" in their line-up, probably the T460p.

  9. It says on the lenovo site it starts at 5.6 pounds, but in video it says 5.9, then on the text on the video 5.6. Also there are some people reporting more battery life than you state with the 4k screen. More like 5-6 hours. Even more with the FHD screen.
