just ordered my "loaded" P40 and plan to test it against a Surface Pro 4 i7. I bet the decision of which one to keep will come down to screen quality (Surface Pro) vs keyboard quality and hopefully better thermal design (P40). my usual testing involves doing a semi-complex filtered render video in Premiere. In thin laptops whenever the GPU kicks in, the computer under powers the CPU to keep temperature down. hopefully P40 handles it well. I draw some comfort there are very few P40 posts here.
As a side note, I think lenovo could improve their website sale process a lot; ordering a "topseller" or suggested confg and have to wait 3-5 business days for shipment seems excessive. Microsoft, Apple and many other offer next business day.
