Lenovo has revealed a new convertible laptop aimed at professional content producers. The Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga combines powerful internals with the company’s patented folding technology. As far as ThinkPads go, the P40 manages to boast quite a bit more graphical power over its peers.
The ThinkPad P40 brings some beefy internals to the party, starting with a brand new sixth generation Intel Core i7 processor, backing this up is up to 16 GB RAM and a 512GB SSD. It isn’t too unusual to see a ThinkPad with these specifications, which is why Lenovo has also thrown in a Quadro M500M discrete graphics card with 2GB VRAM.
Powering the 2560 x 1440 resolution IPS display is Wacom technology, which offers 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity. Lenovo is also offering its ThinkPad Pen Pro as an option for the laptop.
Lenovo has also fitted that the ThinkPad P40 Yoga with the Lift ‘n Lock keyboard. This essentially raises the frame around the keyboard keys while in tablet mode, which should solve the issue of having them sticking out of the back. The feature was introduced with in 2013, and should really be installed on more folding convertibles.
The Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga will begin shipping in Q1 2016 with a starting price of $1399 (about RM5900).
