The world of laptop workstations is expanding and coming into its own. The fact that you can now get an 8-core CPU inside a device that weighs less than 2 kilograms is astonishing, as a laptop of this caliber can now handle pretty much everything you throw at it.
Today we have the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 4, a notebook, which not only brings the performance, but also has the accompanying features, such as a big 16:10 display, a wide I/O, and a plethora of others, which we will talk about below.
Today we are giving you a quick overview of the new Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 4.
Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 4: Full Specs
The laptop utilized interesting materials for its build, with there being two options for the lid and one option for the base. The first iteration of the laptop uses a carbon fiber plate, which is engulfed in glass fiber reinforced plastic. The second iteration has a carbon fiber weave, which covers the entire lid. Regardless of what you pick, you’ll still be getting an aluminum base, giving you a sturdy and rigid device, which is typical of ThinkPads. Weight-wise, the laptop weighs only 1.81 kg, which you can thank the carbon fiber for. It is one of the best materials when it comes to weight:strength ratio. The laptop also has a profile of 18.2 mm.
The laptop offers two display options, both of which have a 16-inch diagonal and a 16:10 aspect ratio. This aspect ratio gives you more room on the vertical axis, allowing you to fit more apps and menus all at once, improving your multitasking and workflow. The first display has a QHD+ resolution, 400 nits of brightness, and a 1200:1 contrast ratio. It also covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut. The other display option dials everything up to eleven, with a UHD+ resolution, a 600 nit max brightness, a 1500:1 contrast ratio, and 100% AdobeRGB coverage. This makes the laptop perfect for designers and content creators.
