Lenovo Announces ThinkPad Yoga P40 Mobile Workstation.

Lenovo announced more additions to its ThinkPad P series on Tuesday, including a convertible Yoga-style ThinkPad geared for folks who need to do a lot of digital sketching.Lenovo has announced a pair of new mobile workstations at the Autodesk University event in Las Vegas, and the front-runner is the latest ThinkPad Yoga.While the P40 is probably the most interesting of Lenovo’s upcoming ThinkPad Yoga models, the company also plans to sell a new $1299 ThinkPad P50 Yoga model with a 2,800 x 1620 pixel display and a Core i7 processor.

Alongside that there’s also the ThinkPad P50s, which Lenovo says is a “more affordable” workstation that still packs premium functionality in a sleek package. This new ThinkPad Yoga P40 may look like the previous models, but it’s loaded with workstation-level features and specs, beginning with the 2560×1440 IPS display with Wacom Active ES technology that boasts 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity. Lenovo says the software driving this digitizer has been carefully optimized with help from Wacom: “Professional artists and designers have been clear with the need for absolute precision and accuracy. To do this, users typically to purchased two systems – a tablet to deliver the sensitivity and accuracy of a premium sketching experience and a mobile workstation to render designs in powerful applications.

All three new devices are scheduled to roll out before the end of March 2016 and come with Windows 10 (though some models also offer Windows 7 and 8 options). Working with Wacom, Lenovo developed a unique driver to get closer than ever to the “pen to paper” experience. “Sketching is the foundation of everything we do”, said Kyle Runciman, industrial designer and strategic content manager, Autodesk. “The ability to perform all of these capabilities on a single machine is huge for our industry”. For a comfortable and realistic sketching experience, the rechargeable ThinkPad Pen Pro is included, along with additional pen tips providing varied levels of tactile feedback for the professional community.” The underlying hardware features 6th-Gen Intel Core i7 processors, graphics provided by a 2GB NVIDIA Quadro M500M card, up to 16GB of memory (SoDIMM), a 512 GB SSD, and Intel 8260 2×2 802.11ac wireless. The sketch-friendly ThinkPad P40 Yoga is Lenovo’s attempt to create a 2-in-1 that’s light enough to use as a tablet for sketching, yet powerful enough to handle Windows desktop programs to further develop those sketches.

The machine features tried-and-true ThinkPad reliability for maximum uptime in or out of the office, with long battery life, Mil-SPEC tested construction to ensure uptime under the toughest conditions, and a lightweight design using advanced materials. Even if you don’t have spare battery the system can last more than two work days, as Lenovo quotes 17 hours of endurance with the largest optional units.

This a follow-up to the maker’s P300 ThinkStation, and it brings with it an Intel Xeon E3-1200v5 processor, an NVIDIA GPU, up to 64GB of RAM, and support for FLEX drives.
