    I'm looking for good battery life, relatively light, quad core, good quality. The p51 seems to meet these criteria but I'm not seeing any reviews - any owners posting pros and cons here?

    Thanks

    There's one just posted on the German notebookcheck page. A translated version is usually later posted on the English page, but it's not there yet.

    I've had my P51 for a few weeks now. Not sure if it's by design or just a bad cooling fan install but my CPUs have been hitting 95+ degrees C when really pushed and thermal throttling kicks in:

    For some reason the Core i7s don't seem to be having the thermal issues like the Xeons as indicated in the above review links. I've opted for an exchange as the temps are getting a bit too close to the 100 deg limit for me and there's also cluster of dead pixels on the screen. I should be getting the replacement around July 12.

    I have a thinkpad p51 and the hottest the cpu is getting is about 85 C. Right now it is 82 C but I am encoding a video. The 960 pro 2 TB drive rocks in this laptop. I have the core I7 cpu with 64 GB's of ram.
