Boasting a smaller footprint with minimal compromise, the ThinkPad P16 is Lenovo’s latest mobile workstation that offers high-end performance in a small form factor. According to the company, the ThinkPad P16 is a combination of the best bits of the ThinkPad P15 and P17.
Lenovo ThinkPad P16 2022
The Lenovo ThinkPad P16 Mobile Workstation, as the name implies, features a 16-inch UHD+ display offering a 16:10 aspect ratio. Users can also opt for a touch-enabled OLED panel or a regular IPS that offers better brightness.
The device is equipped with the industry’s first 55W processor — the Intel 12th Gen HX, and supports NVIDIA RTX A5500 professional graphics with 16GB of dedicated memory. This makes it easy for the ThinkPad P16 to take on GPU memory-intensive tasks while also remaining power efficient.
The workstation features DDR5 memory technology with 128GB storage capacity and a maximum of 8TB storage capacity through performance SSDs.
In terms of ports, the ThinkPad P16 offers two USB-A, two USB-C Thunderbolt 4, one USB C 3.2, one HDMI, a 3.5mm headphone and microphone jack, and a card reader.
The P16 is made out of an all-aluminum storm gray body with a red accent across the back of the device rendering the mobile workstation a pop of color.
In order to make up for its compact size and also maximize performance, the device features a new cooling solution complete with dual fans, heat pipes, a dual vapor chamber, keyboard air intake, and a dual by-pass design. As a result, the ThinkPad P16 is able to effectively reduce temperatures and maintain consistent performance.
Additionally, the mobile workstation boasts of high durability thanks to it being ISV certified while also passing the highest level of MIL-SPEC standards.
The ThinkPad P16 mobile workstation is priced starting at $1,979 and will be available for purchase later this month.

Alongside the P16, Lenovo is also launching the ThinkPad C14 Chromebook Enterprise laptop.
Powered by Google Chrome OS, the ThinkPad C14 is equipped with the Intel vPro and 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processors. A 14-inch FHD IPS display provides ample room to navigate and work. The Chromebook also has an optional touch-enabled panel.
Meeting the needs of hybrid work is an FHD webcam with a privacy shutter. Thunderbolt USB-C ports are onboard, and the device’s Rapid Charge technology ensures fast power top-ups.
The Chromebook also comes with WiFi 6E and 4G LTE support. An optional fingerprint reader is available for extra security.
Both the ThinkPad P16 and C14 support Dolby Vision and HDR with the OLED panel offering additional features such as HDR500 True Black, X-RIte FCC, and 100% DCI-P3.
