Top-selling business mobile workstation, now with desktop multi-monitor power

Power-user desktop replacement with outstanding external monitor support

Enjoy desktop multi-monitor power, fast workstation performance and the top-selling business laptop brand. This Lenovo ThinkPad P50 is a power-user desktop replacement, with a superior combination of standard features and options:

  • IPS LCD screen with 1920x1080 (FHD) resolution and wide viewing angles
  • Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core processor
  • Fast NVMe PCI Express SSD, up to 4X the speed of conventional SATA SSDs
  • Optional dual or triple SSDs with total 8TB capacity
  • Up to 64GB DDR4 memory (4 DIMM slots)
  • Optional 4G LTE mobile broadband
  • Up to 9.7 hours battery life
  • Mobility: 5.9 lbs and 1.16" thick
  • NVIDIA Quadro M1000M graphics with 2GB memory
  • Three external monitor ports: Mini DisplayPort, HDMI, Thunderbolt 3
  • Up to 6 external monitors via a simple two-cable connection (Thunderbolt 3 + USB 3.0)

A great image from any angle

Featuring an IPS LCD panel, the ThinkPad P50 delivers a great image from any angle. IPS LCD screens enable ultra-wide viewing angles, with almost zero loss of quality when viewed from oblique angles. Conventional LCD panels lose contrast and color fidelity dramatically when not viewed at a right angle. IPS technology makes this laptop a great choice for presentations and collaboration.

Drive up to six high-resolution external monitors

NVIDIA Quadro M1000M graphics combined with Thunderbolt 3 enable this laptop to drive up to four external monitors at up to WQXGA (2560×1600) resolution via a single Thunderbolt 3 cable. Add a USB dock to drive two more monitors for six total external monitors, plus the laptop LCD.

Digital Tigers offers unique Thunderbolt 3 and USB multi-monitor adapters and docks tested and certified for this laptop. In addition, we offer complete packages with Zenview multi-screen displays, such as Zenview Command Center 24 IPS Thin shown above. Configure a complete package with display by clicking the tab "Customize Complete Setup: Add Multi-Screen Monitor."

Here's what's possible for external monitors with adapters and docks, using only one or two cables connected to the laptop:

  • 6 × QHD (2560×1440) resolution (Thunderbolt 3 + USB 3.0)
  • 4 × WQXGA (2560×1600) resolution (Thunderbolt 3)
  • 3 × 4K UHD (3840x2160) resolution (Thunderbolt 3 + USB 3.0)
  • 2 × 4K UHD resolution (Thunderbolt 3)

Easy multi-monitor connectivity via Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt logo

Drive up to four high-resolution external monitors via a single Thunderbolt 3 cable! This Lenovo ThinkPad P50 makes it possible, thanks to an NVIDIA Quadro M1000M dedicated graphics controller with 2GB memory.

Digital Tigers unleashes this workstation graphics power with our Thunderbolt 3 adapter below in tandem with one or two DisplayPort hubs. Everything is plug and play: no driver required, and no impact on CPU performance. The internal laptop screen is also available as an optional independent monitor, driven by Intel HD graphics, or can be disabled with the lid closed.

Thunderbolt 3 to dual DisplayPort adapter   3-port DisplayPort MST hub with detachable cable

Thunderbolt 3 to dual DisplayPort adapter

This adapter plugs into a Thunderbolt 3 port and provides two DisplayPort 1.2 ports, each supporting up to 4K UHD (3840×2160) resolution @60Hz. Each downstream port also supports a DisplayPort MST hub (see right).

An alternative Thunderbolt 3 to dual HDMI adapter is also available. DVI adapter dongles are optional.

 

3-port DisplayPort hub

This hub breaks out three DispayPort ports from a single DisplayPort 1.2 port. Each of the three downstream ports supports up to 1920×1200 resolution @60Hz. Alternatively, using only two ports enables up to QHD (2560×1440) or WQXGA (2560×1600) resolution @60Hz.

An alternative 4-port HDMI hub is also available, supporting four HDMI monitors up to FHD (1920×1080) resolution. In addition, optional HDMI and DVI adapter dongles are available for the DisplayPort hub.

Triple-monitor USB 3.0 dock

With our amazing USB 3.0 dock, you can connect up to three monitors plus five USB devices, Gigabit Ethernet, a headset and speakers — all with a single USB 3.0 connection!

What's more, this dock can be combined with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity to support a total of six (or seven) external monitors. Four monitors are connected via Thunderbolt 3, and two or three monitors are connected via this dock. The internal laptop screen is also available as an optional independent monitor, or can be disabled with the lid closed.

Outstanding professional performance

Accelerated workflows: The latest 6th Gen Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad Core processor provides the power to extract maximum performance from the demanding professional software you rely on to do your job.

Professional graphics: From rendering to complex modeling, you'll notice superior performance over a consumer graphics card with NVIDIA Quadro M1000M graphics featuring 2GB GDDR5. The Quadro graphics controller is also able to drive four high-resolution external monitors directly via Thunderbolt 3, without taxing the CPU with less efficient USB adapters.

Ultra-fast, large SSDs: Your large and complex projects will be driven by the latest ultra-fast, reliable solid state drives (SSDs) — your choice of up to 1TB PCIe SSD, plus up to 4TB SATA SSD option. Digital Tigers offers dual PCIe + SATA SSD build options and also features the latest NVMe PCI Express SSDs from Samsung and Intel, with speeds up to 6X the performance of SATA SSDs.

 

Ultra-fast PCI Express NVMe SSD

This laptop model is equipped standard with a traditional hard drive. However, a variety of SSD (solid state drive) upgrades are available, which deliver much faster performance and reliability. These include the latest PCI Express (PCIe) SSDs using NVMe technology, which are 3X to 6X as fast as conventional SSDs. We strongly recommend these SSD upgrades for all users.

NVMe SSDs use the PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 x4 bus, which is 4000 MB/s, much faster than the 600 MB/s SATA bus used by conventional SSDs. What's more, the new NVMe interface exploits the faster PCIe bus through a more efficient I/O protocol, enabling many more I/O operations per second and throughput approaching the theoretical limit of the PCIe bus.

 

Recommended NVMe SSD upgrades

New PCI Express NVMe SSDs from Samsung and Intel provide upgrade options for higher capacity and performance.

  • Affordable Intel 600p SSDs are available in capacities up to 1TB and offer read performance up to 3X the speed of SATA SSDs.
  • Higher performance Samsung 960 EVO SSDs deliver up to 3200 MB/s read and 1800 MB/s write performance.
  • Industry-best Samsung 960 PRO SSDs deliver the fastest performance and capacities up to 2TB.

Ports & Slots

Thunderbolt logo

Note: Thunderbolt 3 port also operates as 10 Gb/s USB-C port (USB 3.1 Type C).

Thunderbolt 3 is based on the DisplayPort 1.2 specification and can support up to 2 streams (8 lanes) of DisplayPort 1.2 video bandwidth, as well as 100W power. This bandwidth capable of supporting the following display modes on a single cable connection:

  • 2 × 4K UHD displays (3840×2160 resolution @60Hz)
  • 4 × WQXGA displays (2560×1600 resolution @60Hz) or QHD/WQHD displays (2560×1440 resolution @60Hz)
  • 6 × WUXGA displays (1920×1200 resolution @60Hz) or FHD displays (1920×1080 resolution @60Hz)

However, the number of external displays is also limited by the graphics controller. This laptop has an NVIDIA Quadro graphics controller that can drive up to four external displays, when the internal laptop screen is either disabled or switched to the Intel graphics controller (hybrid graphics mode).

This system has two Thunderbolt 3 ports for cabling convenience when attaching two DisplayPort 1.2 displays, such as two 4K UHD monitors. However, the system has a single Thunderbolt controller serving the two ports, so total bandwidth remains 40 Gb/s and 2 streams (8 lanes) of DisplayPort 1.2 video bandwidth.

Start Menu Customization

Many people still prefer the Start menu from Windows 7 or even Windows XP over the tiled Start menu introduced with Windows 10. Desktop business users in particular may find the Windows 10 Start menu inefficient to navigate and visually noisy. From your first bootup, the standard Microsoft-imposed tiled interface acts as a set of billboards promoting games and entertainment, which seems out of place on a work computer running Windows 10 Pro. Going forward, Microsoft seeks to monetize your workspace by directing your attention to new tiles that appear on an ongoing basis, making the Windows desktop effectively an advertising vehicle.

Windows 10 is otherwise a great operating system, with many important improvements over Windows 7 and XP. However, you may miss the old Start menu and you may not appreciate Microsoft's monetizing your own workspace.

Now you can combine the superior performance of Windows 10 with a familiar and efficient Start menu that you prefer and control.

The standard Windows 10 tiled Start menu remains accessible if ever needed. Meanwhile, you can tailor your new and familiar Start menu to your unique preferences with highly configurable options and skins. You can also permanently revert to the standard Windows 10 Start menu at any time.

  • Clicking "Programs" or "Apps" (above left) opens a cascading (flyout) submenu showing all program groups or all apps at once, in multiple columns if necessary, with no need to scroll (shown at right). Hovering over any program group opens a submenu of programs. This interface is fastest for navigating a long list of program groups. Also, splitting Apps (mostly Microsoft consumer bloatware) from Programs keeps the Programs menu lean and focused on your own installed applications.
