Currently in 2022, the 2nd generation ThinkPad P15v is the most powerful Lenovo laptop, making use of the powerful 11th Gen Intel Core processors and NVIDIA graphics.
What makes it so powerful?

Let’s take a look at the stats:

On top of core computing functions such as web browsing and anything in the Microsoft suite of programmes, a Core i9 allows you to create and edit 4k UHD content, 360° videos, high-quality music and 3D models as it easily handles demanding creative programmes. The processor comes with a large cache size which makes repeated tasks faster and more efficient.
The processor and the NVIDIA graphics mean that the ThinkPad P15v also supports fantastic gaming and VR experiences.
The ThinkPad P15v does not come with integrated mobile broadband as standard. However, WWAN is available as an added extra and must be configured at the time of purchase.
This Lenovo laptop, as with all ThinkPads, is tested rigorously, undergoing over 200 quality checks and against 12 military-grade requirements.
ThinkShield, Lenovo’s built-in suite of security solutions, come with the ThinkPad P15v Gen 2 as standard, helping you keep your data secure. This is supported by the discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) and the fingerprint scanner for restricted access.
In summary, the ThinkPad P15v Gen 2 has class-leading performance and a durable build, however, that does come with a comparable price tag.
