My next full-sized mobile workstation GPU will be as fast a GTX 1070 or better, whether it's a Lenovo or not.
Performance means more than the Quadro nameplate.

Interesting remark. out of curiosity, you want to game or to use CAD type of software? I am asking as I am almost certain that a M4000M outperforms the 1070 in CAD/professional apps. Remember that Nvidia has the practice to segment the markets by using different drivers for the GeForce and the Quadro series. as long as they keep using that, it wont really matter what GeForce card you buy.
Also notice how for Workstations, stability is priced over raw performance. so mobile workstatiosn chassis will normally aim for a lower power/thermal envelope.
Also, I dont see big differences in the graphics cards used in workstations across Lenovo, HP, Dell. so brand wont really matter.

Are you looking for a gaming laptop instead of a business one? If so, you might be better served by something like the IdeaPad Y900-17, which has features for gamers like a mechanical keyboard, nVidia G-sync display and lots of LEDs. The current model has a GeForce 980M, but I would imagine future gaming laptops would have newer GPUs.

Wait a few years, and there will be plenty of mobile workstations with GPUs equal/better to a GTX 1070
Otherwise, there are plenty of gaming laptops & "desktop replacement laptops" with desktop CPUs and GPUs available today. With GTX1080 too.

On that note, is there any timeline for Nvidia to release the Pascal mid-tier desktop and notebook GPU? I think for desktops they only released the Pascal high end P5000, P6000. I would be very interested in a P2000P (if they keep teh M2000M label convention).
