Looking to buy an older workstations, are they any good? (w540, p51)

2020-12-04, 7:19 AM

Hey, writing this on mobile, so sorry if my formatting is not great. But I was looking into buying a workstation laptop and as I'm just starting to learn 3d modeling and how to use cad, I dont think that I need to buy a top of the line machine.

 

I was looking into lenovo thinkpad w540 and p51, how are they holding up these days?

Thanks for all and any help!

They are still great machines. Consider a P52 or P72 if you could make use of a bit extra CPU power. I bought a maxed out P72 for 1500 EUR brand new.
