The Lenovo ThinkPad P15 is a remarkable laptop in many regards. Its virtually unmatched performance can handle any conceivable task you could throw at it. But it has a few clear misses that make it a less compelling option for some users. The sheer size and weight, at over 6 pounds 1.2 inches thick, means the P15 shouldn't be the first choice.

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
With its powerful components, the ThinkPad P15 does not show any weaknesses in the system performance. The P15 is also able to display modern games smoothly in Full-HD resolution and at high detail settings. The high CPU consumption values come at a price: the external temperatures rise up to 60 °C (140 °F) on the bottom.

  • Good input devices

Sentiment Score[*] 67%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo ThinkPad P15s Gen 1 is too anaemic for 4K gaming. The cooling system is not powerful enough to keep it from overheating. The Lenovo laptop draws more power than the HP ZBook Firefly 15 G7. However, the ZBook also comes with a 4K screen, but it is significantly less bright.

  • Sturdy housing
  • Good input devices
  • High-quality workstation
  • Low-contrast UHD display
  • Poor battery runtime
  • No AMD option

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
Lenovo's ThinkPad P15 is a first-class imaging platform. It's built for professional apps, but it's certainly capable of playing the latest games after hours. The ThinkPad is not as expensive as our Dell Precision50 review unit. But it's a juggernaut among professional laptops and workstations.

  • Gorgeous, gorgeous screen
  • Sleek design
  • Good battery life
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port
