When you need it yesterday
The ThinkPad P53 features WiFi-6 certification, the fastest WiFi ever. It’s built to handle larger capacity, especially when running in crowded environments—so no waiting or buffering. Go ahead and stream video, or create it. With a battery that runs up to 16.5 hours, this mobile workstation is ready for anything, anywhere.* And for true mobility, add optional WWAN** connectivity, which lets you jump online securely wherever there’s cellular service. * Based on testing with MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors. ** WWAN must be configured at time of purchase, as it’s not upgradeable.
Tested for battle, built for life
Because you need reliability, the ThinkPad P53 mobile workstation had gone through some of the most stringent product testing in the industry.

The ThinkPad P53 offers the option of a stunning 15.6” 4k OLED touch display (3840 x 2160), available with Dolby Vision™ high dynamic range (HDR) technology. Enjoy expanded contrast, more refined detail, and colours that are super-vibrant—especially so with Adobe 100% colour gamut.

We take care of security; you take care of business
Keep your business data—and your privacy—safe with the ThinkPad P53 mobile workstations’ comprehensive suite of ThinkShield security features. Its discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) encrypts data and works in conjunction with Windows 10 security.
