Lenovo introduces remarkably budget-friendly AMD Ryzen 8000 mobile workstation β€” however, the decision to equip this powerful machine with a meager 39WHr battery baffles me.

Lenovo has announced its 14-inch ThinkPad P14s Gen 5 mobile workstation, driven by an AMD Ryzen Pro 8040 HS-Series processor featuring Ryzen AI and Radeon integrated graphics.

Geared towards mobile professionals seeking high performance in a compact device, the ThinkPad P14s Gen 5 weighs a mere 2.89lbs and offers up to 96GB DDR5 and a maximum of a 2TB PCIe 4×4 Performance SSD.

A variety of touch or non-touch displays are available in 2.8K OLED (2880×1800) or WUXGA FHD+ (1920×1200), with a 3M Optical Film solution boosting brightness to 400 nits while purportedly consuming up to 16% less energy.

Suboptimal battery selection

The device is furnished with multiple ports including two USB-A, two USB-C Thunderbolt 4, HDMI 2.1 TDMS, a mic/headphone jack, RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet, and the choice of an optional Smart Card Reader, and Nano SIM2 slot. It sports a 5MP camera with a privacy shutter, or a 5MP RGB +IR webcam if preferred.

Regarding wireless connections, the device backs Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3, accompanied by the option for 5G WWAN, and NFC.

Curiously, Lenovo has opted to pair this robust machine with a paltry 39.3Whr battery. The rationale behind this choice remains unknown, but thankfully it’s a user-replaceable model and users have the choice to upgrade to a more substantial 52.5Whr battery if they desire a device that doesn’t constantly need to be plugged in.

The workstation comes with Windows 11 Pro and is certified for Ubuntu Linux, Red Hat Enterprise, and Fedora. Consumers can select between a backlit or non-backlit keyboard.

The Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 5 mobile workstation is set to be available starting in late May 2024. The expected initial price is $1,379, but considering the better battery is advisable when planning your purchase.
