It would be great if they had a "custom build" option for these. Don't need and want to pay for the SSD.

Its more appropriate to compare this to the consumer version of the P1, the X1 extreme. The model *does* come with a 3080 as an option if you go for the i9 CPU. However, I seriously doubt that the chassis can handle cooling both of these space heaters at full throttle.

The X1/P1 certainly got the much better makeover with this generation, while the T15g/P15 stayed completely identical to the prior generation. Considering that even with the beefier heat pipes on these thiccpads that they STILL throttle, I would personally be willing to give up the four RAM slots and get the P1 instead, if I were to do it over again.

Quote from starcaptor :
I commented on this in a prior deal, but I actually own one of these behemoths, and can vouch that you dont buy this, or any thinkpad, for the specs alone. I own the P15, which is basically the same as this machine except that it has Quadro instead of Geforce graphics.

Pros -
The keyboard
Every screen is the best of its class. The IPS screen and the OLED are amazing in 4k spec. Even the higher-spec 1080p screen is nice
4 RAM slots
Robust cooling (but it has its limits)
Indestructible mil-spec chassis
little things like the camera shutter, trackpoint, full-size SD card slot, etc.
Many ports - 3 TB, 2 USB-A
The BEST support* (assuming that there are parts in stock)
Very repairable - all schematics/blow-up diagrams are easy to download and view. (Sadly, the AC jack is not replaceable like it was when Lenovo used barrel-plugs)

Cons -
Hard to compare prices as this category of laptop doesnt really exist en masse (It isnt a gaming machine or a workstation-class...more like a creator's machine)
Very heavy (even amongst workstation class machines)
Throttling at the highest level of usage (Small FFT P95 torture test and linpack, for example)
Dated design with the bezels (but this isnt really Lenovos's fault. No one mass-produces 4k 16 inch screens yet, and only Samsung makes OLEDs at this size, and just one size)
The graphics will be limited due to the cooling capacity, by design. (My GPU has a 90w variant of the RTX 4000)

All in all, I cant recommend the machine to many people unless you are either a designer, or if you have a serious Thiccpad fetish. I am in the latter, and have used X and W series laptops for the past 10 years. Every single one worked until I stopped I using them. If youre a gamer, move on.
Any idea how it would handle gaming to an external 4k display in a pinch? Specifically warzone

I cant speak for that specific game, but at the least, when using an external display, you do not need to worry about the iGPU creating any lag. Despite not having a MUX switch in windows, the P15's video out is directly attached to the daughter board for video.

I havent seen a blown up diagram for this 2nd gen machine, but I imagine that it would be the same.

There is also an option to disable hybrid graphics in the BIOS, but I do not know if this changes the physical connection to the LCD or not.

Bottom line is that this machine will perform as fast as the 3080 max q would on any other machine when connected to an external display

Quote from seanleeforever :
not really.
specifically to the laptops (and some desktop). processor contains all pcie lanes. all M/B does is to trace out the connection from the processor to physical connectors.
M/B doesn't do any signal manipulation to those signals. 11gen intel provides 20 PCIe Gen 4.0 directly from the processor, which is more than enough for most laptops.

for some desktop boards where you want more PCI-E lines than processor contains, they would include a dedicated platform controller.

processor include pcie lane is nothing new, and has been the standard for quite some times. most times when certainly board only "support certain pcie gen" when those pcie came from processor, is just a marketing strategy to sell you new product, and the fact that they don't want to do BIOS updates to show those options. but that doesn't apply to you as you will never update the laptop processor, and it makes no sense for manufacture to hold back the pcie speed because it would actually cost them more money to do so.

as to wifi cards, it is entirely up to you, just know it is a 10 dollar user replaceable part. but i understand people who are not comfortable holding a screw driver.
by chance, today came across a specific example where the chipset supports 11th gen intel but not PCIe Gen 4 at all (0 lanes): H470 (my use of "mobo" refers to chipset, in case that wasn't inferred already)

Since your cocky reply came to mind, I thought I'd drop a reply here, and prob leave it alone again for weeks, months, maybe forever. I got better things to do than argue on internet forums...

by chance, did you read what i said?
what i said was specifically to the "laptops", go find me a laptop that uses processor with embedded gen 4 pci-e but somehow those gen 4 traces from processor become gen 3 interfaces.... you won't find any, at least not now. there use to be a special time where some laptop manufactures like clevo uses LGA socket and allow you to upgrade the processor, then there might be a chance for that to happen.


I even address your question in my original reply..
"when certainly board only "support certain pcie gen" when those pcie came from processor, is just a marketing strategy to sell you new product, and the fact that they don't want to do BIOS updates to show those options."

but back to your specific question. H470 and intel 11 gen. as i said above, there is no technical reason why H470 couldn't support gen 4 PCI-E lanes from the processor other than the processor it support at launch (gen 10) only support pci-e 3, and that's how the board firmware were made.

for example, ASROCK H470 steel legend, which run on H470 chipset, got upgraded to gen 4 via firmware when you drop a gen 11 intel. not all board manufacture do that, in fact, most don't do that for their low end board. but just look at better board such as Z490 (also gen 3 board at launch), most reputable manufacture upgraded their Z490 board to support gen 4 pci-e lane when you drop intel gen 11 processor. as long as those lane came from processor itself.

this is nothing new, AMD also had similar things on their desktop socket. the AM4 can support ryzen 1 all the way to ryzen 5 processors, which just complicate things. but regardless, B450 board via "unoffical" firmware can indeed support Gen 4 when you drop ryzen 5 processor, until AMD locked that feature away because it is good for business.


just to add a little bit since we on this topic, as you may come across this.
even with the 500 series intel chipset, the gen 4 lanes only come from processor. The general purpose PCIe connectivity put out by the Intel 500-series chipsets (not the processor) continues to be PCIe Gen 3
