P72 finally available

#1 Post by BKthink » Sat Oct 27, 2018 4:06 pm

Any thoughts on the new P72, finally available to order as of 10/26?

Longtime TP user, happily banging away at a nicely equipped W530 now, but every 5-7yrs or so I upgrade my platform.

Hmm, I suppose the P72 is an expensive niche and low-volume machine.

I'll keep my eyes out for reviews or hands-on reports.

The 17" P72 must be *heavy* !!

I tried lifting up the 15" P52 today, and it was heavy enough for me.

Anyways, here are some recent P72 reviews:

Compared to a W700 it's pretty light.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
