If you thought the existing Thinkpad P52 was a beast, wait until you get a look at what Lenovo will cram into the updated model:

  • 6-core Intel Core or Xeon processor
  • Nvidia Quadro P3200 graphics
  • 128GB of DDR4 RAM
  • Up to 6TB of PCIe SSD storage
  • 15.6-inch display with a 4K resolution
  • 2 x Thunderbolt 3 ports (along with three USB-A ports, HDMI 2.0, SC card reader, and Ethernet)
  • VR-ready

How much will all this awesomeness cost? Lenovo hasn't yet unveiled the price, but I'm guessing that if you need to ask the price, this isn't the laptop for you.
