I received my Lenovo P1 Thinkpad Thursday. I'm still doing transfers from my 5 year old Lenovo W540 Thinkpad. I did get Nikon Capture NX2 installed, which is the program I use for post-processing RAW image files.
Lenovo P1 Thinkpad:
Intel® Xeon® E-2176M vPro 6 Core Processor (2.70GHz, up to 4.40GHz with Turbo Boost, 12MB Cache)
15.6” 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS multi-touch, anti-reflective / anti-smudge, 400 nits
64 GB (32GB + 32GB) DDR4 2666M
Nvidia Quadro P2000 4GB
Quantity 2 x 2TB Solid State Drive PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.0 M.2
Lenovo W540 Thinkpad:
Intel I7-4930MX CPU
M.2 50GB CACHE, running ExpressCache
1TB Hybrid HDD
I did a time comparison of post processing 27 RAW image files. The W540 took 56S, the P1 took 7S, pretty impressive!
So far, I’m extremely happy with the P1, excellent quality, and I have not found any defects that have been reported on the P1 in the forums.

I also owned W540 for 5 years and just got my Thinkpad P1 with similar config (except I go for 512GB+512GB no RAID).
I like P1's finishing but I encountered some issues on system stability and the SSDs supplied by Lenovo. You can see my post and hope you are not encounter the same issue as mine.

I ordered my P1 before Chinese New year (end January), and end up I need to wait for 1 month and eventually got it on 5th March.
I updated my laptop's BIOS on my 1st week of use and such problems came out since then.
