The 15.6-inch display can be configured up to a 4K UHD IPS display with an optional IR camera.
Primarily geared towards architects, 3D animators and other graphically demanding roles, the new P-series come with 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake processors that can be equipped with up to 16GB DDR4 RAM and 512GB solid state drive storage.
It has support for USB Type C Gen 2 and the latest Nvidia Quadro M520M dedicated workstation graphics and colour calibrators for any design and animation needs.
Combining the mobility of a workstation with performance, it is built to withstand rigorous use as well as wear-and-tear. Lenovo says that it has military specifications which have been tested for exposure to humidity, temperature, sand and mechanical shocks.
Lenovo says it comes with a long battery life powered by Power Bridge Technology with hot-swappable rear batteries that last up to five hours
The ThinkPad 51s will be available mid-July 2017 and will be priced from US$1,642 (RM6,999).
