Battery location of Thinkpad P50. A terrible design.

2017-06-13, 9:23 AM

Its just a experience sharing message, so that Lenova would rectify it in their future designs.


My old W530 used to have the battery compartment below the LCD screen. But in my new P50, battery is moved to the bottom right corner, resting it under ones right palm when we use it. I guess it is done to accomodate the HDMI, LAN and a couple of USB ports behind.

I did not find any issue as long as I am running it on battery.

But the moment I plug-in my charger it heats up below my right hand. Making it irritating to use.

So technically, I am being forced to use external keyboard and mouse now. hmmm...
