Thinkpad P40 Yoga lets 3D and graphics pros get flexible

— 8:39 AM on December 2, 2015

Lenovo is taking its Yoga classes very seriously. The company has just released a new convertible workstation targeted at graphic and CAD designers. Take a look at the company's latest asana, the Thinkpad P40.

You'd be forgiven for thinking the P40 is riffing off the Surface Book, but the similiarities are mostly skin-deep. The P40's screen packs a Wacom Active ES digitizer capable of sensing 2048 levels of pressure. According to Lenovo, Wacom designed a custom driver for the unit in this Thinkpad. The included, rechargeable pen comes with several pen tips and fits into the Yoga's chassis for safekeeping. That fancy digitizer wouldn't be much use without a good screen underneath, though, and the P40's 2560x1440 IPS screen should easily fit the bill. Lenovo didn't say what the exact screen size is, though.

The workstation-grade features don't stop there, either. Graphics horsepower comes by way of a Nvidia Quadro M500M card with 2GB of VRAM, while Skylake Core i7 CPUs and up to 16GB of RAM handle main processing duties. For storage purposes, the P40 packs an SSD with capacity options up to 512GB.

Additional niceties include a keyboard frame that draws into the chassis when the machine is put into tablet mode, and Lenovo's OneLink+ docking station connector. Prices for this ThinkPad start at $1399.
