Lenovo’s Upgraded ThinkPad P1 Is the WFH Laptop you Need: Here’s Why

If you are looking for the ideal laptop for working from home during the pandemic, then Lenovo could be the go-to brand for quite some time.

That’s because their upgraded P1 ranges packs a punch where it matters the most. For starters, the P15, and P17 have an upgraded processor.

That means they will come with 11th-generation Core or Xeon mobile processors that have a clock speed of 5.0GHz. This ensures better speed and power than the previous models making the laptop capable enough to handle any and every software

Another thing we love about these laptops is that they are equipped with a 1080p webcam which is a rarity. This makes it one of the best choices for people that have a lot of video calls to attend with clients.

At 1080p your face is going to be crystal clear. This is well supported by the clear and loud microphone. So even if you do not have earphones, you can still take calls easily (no more canceled meetings with important clients anymore).

But while, camera and microphone are important, you aren’t taking any calls without fast internet right? Well, it doesn’t get any faster than 5G and these are first laptops on the market to support it.

Supporting all these features is the Nvidia RTX A5000 graphics card with 16GB of VRAM. Is that not good enough for you? No problem.

There are also versions with the GeForce RTX 3070 or 3080 along with either an 8GB or 16GB RAM. And if you are still not happy, you can further amp this up to 64GB RAM while storage can be extended to a whopping 4TB.

Furthermore, there are including 2 USB-A ports, 2 USB-C ports, an HDMI output, a headphone jack, and a nano-SIM card to get the 5G network up and running while you are on the move.

If you are a photographer I am sure it will delight you to know there is also a built-in SD card reader. Whenever you want to unlock the computer, fingerprint scanner makes it easy peasy (no need to write down or remember complicated passwords anymore).

So when can you get your hands on these ThinkPads?

Well, not long to go as they will be launched in July. Though keep in mind, they don’t come cheap and some versions can cost over $2000.
