    The ThinkPad P1 is ripe – It's one of the best performing thin and light laptops on the market. Thanks for watching!

    I faced each and every issue you mentioned, the ctrl button is in the wrong place and the red centre cursor doesn’t make sense… I was wondering why people like Lenovo keyboards with so much flaws and the travel distance also is a lot, it takes more time to type

    Waiting for your review in thinkpad x1 nano…

  4. Mike

    Lenovo has utility to change Fn and Ctrl key positions programmatically, so there is no need to get used if you don't want to

    @heybrother Did I tell you that this tablet sucks with charging

    I wish I had known about this laptop when I was searching for a new one. For some reason, I knew nothing about GPUs, or anything like that in laptops (I only new about ram and storage…). I instead got a Thinkpad P43s, which to be honest is absolute garbage. If you are thinking about getting the P43s or the P14s, don't. It thermal throttles like mad, and if you want to do any form of gaming, you can't. It can pretty much only do CAD, and it can only do it unplugged, because for some reason having it plugged in makes performance worse (how?). Sorry I had to rant…

    Hay Dave, could you please review P15v … I am a student and need something for my Mechanical engineering studies from home (because of COVID19)

    macbook pro can suck it at that performance at that price.

  9. Kipper Klank

    Its funny. you can show some people how amazing this laptop is for the same damn price and they will STILL run right back to a god damn mac book pro smh

    Xeon is overkill Amd would have made laptop the price a little cheaper.

    Hi @Dave Lee can you do one on the T14? I find this one so good for value. Ryzen 7 pro 4750u, 1T SSD, 32gig fast ram, low power 1080p screen, huge battery life, light to medium gaming with NO DEDICATED GRAPHICS!

    My Thinkpad has a BIOS setting to swap the Fn and Ctrl keys.

  14. Paul

    You can change the ctl and fn key functionality in bios

  15. ty

    I think you can switch the ctrl and fn position in BIOS. At least you could with older TPads

  16. Big sale now – upto 50% off even on gen 3 – grab one –

    👌😎🙏🙏 I own a Gen 1 – since 2 plus years – it rocks – loving it I SAP VMs and it’s awesome🔥👍👍

    Honestly, as long as the Lenovo Thinkpad still exists, i wont use anything else.
    1. The design is classic
    2. The build quality is always top notch
    3. The keyboard is always amazing
    4. It is just SIMPLE AND WORKS.

    Hope Dave remembers the next time he reviews ThinkPad computers, he remembers to tell people they can swap the Fn <> Ctrl keys in BIOS or software.
    But overall, Lenovo should just go ahead and swap them anyway. The Control key is used much more than the Fn key nowadays. I think it hurts than it helps by keeping the old-style.

  19. Siddharth c

    The ecc RAM is specific to the Xeon processor only, not on the i9/i7/i5 processors

  20. zachary prentice

    I know this is is an old video now but you can remap the control/function keys in the thinkpad bios.

    no technical review,, why why,, people who looking to buy this laptop, is asking under the hood,, how many sdd slots, memory slots and maximum, that's why don't follow you clowns
