Realistic timeframe for P51 release date

I've gotten the OK from the CFO (wife) for my new computer. The funds will be in place next week. Does anyone have an idea of a realistic timeframe for the P51 release date? In my estimate, I figure it will be at least a few months before I can spec one out and order. Perhaps another month for delivery. Does this sound about right?

Re: Realistic timeframe for P51 release date

Has anyone got an update on the release dates? Neither model is avaiable yet. Running out of patience waiting on a P71

Re: Realistic timeframe for P51 release date

Hi,

 

I know that everyone posting so far on this thread is from North America, and the release dates referenced above are for this market, but if you want to play around with configuring a currently orderable P51/P71, look at the following link targetted to the Australian market (thanks to a poster on another thread): http://www3.lenovo.com/au/en/laptops/professional/thinkpad-p-series/c/thinkpadp .  Just click on the P51 or P71 link and then scroll to the bottom and click on the "Customize" link.  Now, I guess it is possible that what will be offered for the North American market may be different, but hey, at least it's something to look at now.

Re: Realistic timeframe for P51 release date

Wow the P71 price was outlandish.  I guess I won't be getting one.  I did convert to US dollars it was $9732 loaded. Not sure why either Intels price on the CPU is $623 (They want $500 to upgrade) and Samsung Pro is $605 on Amazon (They want $2200 for 2) And the Quadro cost is ridiculous, thats why i want the 1080 GTX to be a choice instead better card for me and way cheaper.

I gave up and bought a XPS 15 instead. Already tried a P50 and returned it due to the bad screens and since there are still no confirmations about the P51 having a better screen, Dell got my money.

I configured the Dell equivalent to the P71 and, its available now, and its ~$3500 cheaper although they do have a sale going on now. I will wait to see the P71 release, what it's US price is, before I make my decision.

Re: Realistic timeframe for P51 release date

Australian prices on electronics, and Lenovo in particular, have little in common with North American prices. 

 

Dell's Precision 7200 mobile workstations (similar to P51/P71) aren't cheap either btw, however they are available now, and "screwdriver tax" (overpaying for CRUs, like RAM and storage, that is easily available from elsewhere) is a bit smaller with Dell than with Lenovo.
