    including that because the mxm is proprietary

    it's way outdated in addition

    To be fair almost nobody buys thinkpad to play games on them or do anything else that requires a up to date and new GPU. They are meant to be business notebooks, where in most cases even an iGPU is more than enough.

    but they were advertised as a professional workstation with high performance

    shares the same chassis with budget 15.6" T series, which is even more retarded

    Workstation priorities are way different from Gaming.

    Lol the Thinkpad 25 is a complete rip-off and is intended for Thinkpad fanboys who want to go old school with enough money to spare. Lenovo charges about $2000 for it and only offers a dual-core processor.

    Does it include the P series models? I know that T/L/E series models have thermal issues, but don't know about the P series models.

    it's fine once you repaste it


    but doing it on a "professional" device costing thousands of dollars


    really makes you think
