Lenovo is turning its attention to its mobile workstation family, specifically its ThinkPad P Series which are getting upgraded with more potent processors and onboard graphics.

Kicking things off are the ThinkPad P53, which is being billed as the world’s most powerful 15-inch class mobile workstation, and the ThinkPad P73, its 17-inch counterpart. Both are powered by up to 9th generation Intel Core i9 or Xeon octa-core processors and can be equipped with up to 128GB of DDR4 memory via four SODIMM slots. Since Lenovo knows that mobile pros often need a lot of graphics muscle on-the-go, both systems can be optioned with up to a NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 discrete graphics card.

Other features shared between the two systems include support for up to a 6TB NVMe SSD (along with RAID 0, 1, 5 support), two Thunderbolt 3 ports, GbE, and support for Lenovo Rapid Charge Technology.

The primary differences between the two systems comes down to the displays. The ThinkPad P53 comes with up to a 4K OLED touch display, while the ThinkPad P73 features up to a 17.3-inch 4K IPS display. Both are rated at 400 nits and support Dolby Vision HDR.

The ThinkPad P53 starts from $1,799 and will be available in July, while the ThinkPad P73 starts from $1,849 and will be available in August.

Two SODIMM slots provide support for up to 64GB of DDR4, and you can equip the machine with up to a 4TB SSD. On the display front, Lenovo is providing a 4K OLED display option, just as it does on the ThinkPad P53.
