I am not a computer expert, but did want to ensure that any computer technology I purchased would last for at least 3 years. This computer has all of the functions I need and it’s ruggedness is very secure. Would buy again.
3 / 5 stars - A rare workstation-grade ultrabook, Lenovo's ThinkPad P52s offers decent CPU pep, plus Nvidia Quadro graphics for buyers seeking ISV certifications.
Review date: August 8, 2018 | Model: Lenovo ThinkPad P52s
The ThinkPad P52s is a solid mobile workstation that's more portable than most but marred by its short runtime with its base battery. The model I reviewed, with the 4K display and the smallest battery choice, is the least flattering combination for battery life. With the 1080p screen and the extended-battery option, it should get a lot closer to the 10-hour mark that I was expecting. (Get the $29 battery upgrade, before all else, assuming you're willing to bear a little extra weight.)... Performance-wise, you can get more for your dollar by going with a standard-thickness workstation like the ThinkPad P51 or our Editors' Choice-winning HP ZBook 15 G4, but that's the trade-off: a nontrivially heavier bag. If you want as portable of a 15.6-incher you can get for content creation, the ThinkPad P52s is worth a second look. It's not up to rendering the next Pixar blockbuster, but you can run professional applications such as AutoCAD without lugging around a hefty chassis.
