get to know the ThinkPad P43s Mobile Workstation

Powerful learning tool for computer-aided design
Designed with STEM students in mind, the ThinkPad P43s mobile workstation is ideal for light-duty computer-aided design (CAD) in fields such as architecture or engineering. Its 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processor is fast and powerful, while its NVIDIA® Quadro® P520 GPU with 2GB DDR5 gives it extra kick when rendering drawings. Superfast PCIe solid-state storage and up to 48GB of DDR4 memory ensure no more lag time. This workstation also includes ISV certification from major vendors such as Autodesk®, SketchUp, SolidWorks®, and more.
See your renderings in vivid detail
Opt for a WQHD (2560 x 1440), 500-nit display for vibrant colour, with 100% Adobe colour gamut and Dolby Vision™ high dynamic range (HDR) technology, for true-to-life images and video. Enjoy increased brightness, expanded contrast, and refined detail, all in brilliant colours.
Don’t miss a sound
User-facing speakers and dual far field mic help provide a premium audio experience. Dolby Audio™ delivers a rich, powerful sound that adjusts, to deliver home theatre quality in a virtual surround sound experience. This is listening, made easy.
Built to withstand almost anything
The ThinkPad P43s mobile workstation undergoes some of the most stringent product testing in the industry.
Connected and powered for mobility
Take the ThinkPad P43s mobile workstation with you anywhere, for as long as you need to. It's certified for WiFi-5, or you can add the option of WWAN connectivity* and take it anywhere cellular service can reach. And with a battery that lasts up to 14 hours, you can stay for a while. * WWAN must be configured at time of purchase, as it's not upgradeable.
Keeps your data and your privacy safe
This mobile workstation’s security features protect your business-critical info. Its discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) encrypts data and works in conjunction with Windows 10 security features. ThinkShutter, a physical camera cover, blocks the lens to ensure that you’re only seen when you want to be. And an optional fingerprint reader uses biometrics to log you in with a simple touch.
