Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga: Mobile workstation takes aim at creative professionals.

The Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga is claimed to offer a “first-class digital sketching experience” with high mobile workstation performance and reliability. 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. 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.

The system promises accurate sketching precision through a highly responsive pen and touchscreen powered by Wacom Active ES technology, offering 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity on a 2560×1440 IPS display. From digital artists storyboarding the latest Hollywood blockbuster to engineers designing the next hot new car, creative professionals need to both sketch their designs and bring those designs to life. A rechargeable ThinkPad Pen Pro is included for a comfortable and realistic sketching experience, according to Lenovo, along with additional pen tips providing varied levels of tactile feedback.

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). Powering the P40 is an unnamed Intel “Skylake” Core i7 processor, Nvidia Quadro M500M discrete graphics, up to 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 1.4, Mini DisplayPort 1.2, an Ethernet port, a micro SIM slot, and 4-in-1 SD card reader. When in tablet mode, the Lift ‘n Lock mechanism allows the keyboard to rise around the keys, making it more convenient for you to use the P40 in this configuration. The ThinkStation P310 builds on the success of the Lenovo ThinkStation P300, offering an entry-level machine with the technology of a high-end workstation. Lenovo is also offering the notebook with its Power Bridge technology, which allows you to attach an external battery that doubles battery life to 17 hours.

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. Inside, the P310 features an Intel Core processor or the Xeon E3-1200 v5, up to 64GB of RAM, and numerous storage options, including two 3.5-inch SATA slots, a 2.5-inch SATA slot for a SSD, and an M.2 SSD.

The smaller variant in the series can hold two NVIDIA K1200 GPUs and up to 8TB of storage, while the full tower can accommodate dual NVIDIA M4000 cards and storage totaling 16TB. Featuring the new Intel® Xeon® E3-1200v5 and the latest NVIDIA GPU technology, the system also doubles the memory capacity of previous entry-level workstations, offering up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and support for FLEX drives with Samsung M.2 NVMe SSDs.
