Mobile workstation vs laptop

Is your laptop struggling to handle your everyday workload? Have you experienced lag or slow performance when using your frequent applications? Have you been wondering if there’s anything more powerful out there that can perform your tasks faster?

If you’re thinking about maximizing power and performance while staying in a mobile platform, then you definitely want to explore a Lenovo mobile workstation. Our P series mobile workstations are engineered with performance optimization at the forefront; making sure they handle the most intense workloads with ease.

What is a mobile workstation?

A mobile workstation is a high performance laptop built to run intensive applications that drive key personal or business objectives. Mobile workstations are widely used by today’s engineers, data scientists, financial analysts, architects, artists, graphic designers, and everyday power users who need top notch performance.

What features should I consider when selecting a mobile workstation’s display?

Our displays are engineered with a wide variety of users in mind. There are 3 key elements we recommend you pay close attention to when picking the right display:

1) Resolution (FHD 1920x1080 vs 4K UHD 3840x2160)
2) Brightness (measured in nits)
3) Color Gamut (72% NTSC, 100% Adobe or DCI-P3)

Higher resolutions will display images the cleanest and clearest. Brighter displays are useful for those mobile users that work outside or are consistently on-the-go. Color gamut is important for artists, designers, and creators who need to see those true black or deep colors in their content.

Do mobile workstations support digitizer pen technology?

Yes, they sure do! The Thinkpad P1 and ThinkPad P15 mobile workstations come equipped with OLED multitouch displays that fully support Wacom AES 2.0 pen technology, further enabling everyday creators and immersive users.

What’s the best mobile workstation for art & design?

If you live and breathe art & design on a daily basis, chances are color accuracy is important to you. All our mobile workstations come with available 4K UHD displays that feature built in factory color calibration (FCC) and Dolby Vision HDR. FCC is a useful software tool equipped with embedded color profiles like DCI-P3 or Adobe RGB that enable artists, designers, and architects create their best work.

How much graphics power can I get out of a workstation laptop?

Our ThinkPad P15 and ThinkPad P17 are our most powerful mobile workstations in the entire ThinkPad portfolio. With up to Intel Xeon CPUs, 128GB RAM, and Quadro RTX 5000 graphics, they truly are the epitome of power and performance.

The NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 and Quadro RTX 5000 have a Max-Q design in both the P15 and P17. The respective GPUs perform at a max TGP of 90W in the P15 and 110W in the P17, respectively.
