Workstations do not have to be at odds with the design. The Lenovo ThinkPad P1 is one of the best examples. A workstation that has been renewed this 2021 in style, with the presence of a new 4K OLED screen, the inclusion of RTX 3080 graphics, and a larger 90 Whr battery to extend autonomy.
This is everything offered by what is already the fourth generation of the Lenovo ThinkPad P1, one of the most complete portable workstations on the market.
