Lenovo today tipped new ThinkPad laptops and ThinkCentre desktops fitted with Intel’s 10th-generation Core processors.
The ThinkPad P14s and P15s notebooks go on sale this month, and are built for power users, such as engineers, 3D designers, and students, who need to run design applications such as AutoCAD, Revit, and Solidworks, Lenovo says.

The two units also represent the follow-up to last year’s 14-inch ThinkPad P43s and 15.6-inch P53s laptops. (We gave the P53s the P53s an “excellent” score, partly because you could customize it with a powerful Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 graphics chip.)

The refresh will allow customers to buy the new models with Intel’s Core i7-10810U processor, which is part of the “Comet Lake” family, built on 14-nanometer process technology. According to Lenovo, battery life on these laptops should be able to last up to 14 hours on a charge.

You’ll also be able to customize the ThinkPads with an Nvidia Quadro graphics card, up to 2TB of storage, and an option for a 4K display. In addition, you can do away with the Windows 10 OS, and get Ubuntu or Red Hat Linux installed instead straight from the factory.
The P14s will start at $1,599, while the the P5s will go for $1,579. You’ll be able to buy them later this month on Lenovo.com and through the company’s sales channel partners.
ThinkCentre Desktops Also Get 10th Gen
The rest of the new portfolio is occupied by ThinkCentre desktops, which have been designed for small businesses and corporations looking to upgrade their Windows systems. The five-product series spans the M70, M70a, M80, M90, and M90a, allowing you to choose from various features and desktop sizes, such as a full tower, an all-in-one that includes a display, or “small” to “tiny” desktop units, which measure at a mere one liter in volume.

Buyers will also be able to customize the desktop systems with Intel’s 10th Generation vPro processors, which encompass enterprise features such as security enhancements and remote-manageability functions.
Expect the new models to arrive in June starting as low as $499 for the “tiny” desktop units and $649 for a full-size tower. The M70a all-in-one models, meanwhile, will go for $749 and up.
