The needs of workstation users are changing. These workers are getting a lot more mobile. For them, innovation can happen wherever, whenever.

To meet their changing needs, Lenovo this week introduced 5 new members of its ThinkPad P Series of mobile workstations.

These devices, all running Windows 10 Pro and packed with 9th Gen Intel Core processors, are Lenovo’s most powerful new laptops.

Security gets a boost, too. All the new ThinkPads are protected by Lenovo’s ThinkShield, a portfolio of security hardware, software and services. These include privacy screens, a self-healing BIOS, and mobile device management.

Here’s your rundown on Lenovo’s new systems:

> ThinkPad P53: This powerful yet portable 15-inch laptop is designed for architects, engineers and designers.

Lenovo has also made the power supply 35% smaller than that of predecessor systems.
