Thinkpad P51 vs Zbook 15 G4 vs Dell M7520? (xeon)

Thinkpad P51 vs Zbook 15 G4 vs Dell M7520? (xeon)

Thinkpad P51 vs Zbook 15 G4 vs Dell M7520? (xeon)


What is the best laptop among Thinkpad P51, Zbook 15 G4 and Dell M7520? (or the upcoming P52).

I'm looking for something very powerful, 15 inches, 64GB Ram, and Xeon 1535 or even higher. All the aforementioned laptops fulfill these conditions. On the paper they are similar.

But what about their build quality and endurance or drawbacks?

Which one has better screen? I'm interested in the touch screen or the 4K versions.

Thinkpad seems to be cheaper.

The lighter the better. Another option would be XPS 15 but it's not as powerful as the other. Other specialized brands sell laptops with xeon but they tend to be more expensive and heavier.

I've been reading reviews but they just say good things about all of them.

RE: Thinkpad P51 vs Zbook 15 G4 vs Dell M7520? (xeon)

I have a P50, which is the last generation of P51, so for have no any issue, pretty solid and speedy. Just ensure that you configure it with PCIe SSD.


RE: Thinkpad P51 vs Zbook 15 G4 vs Dell M7520? (xeon)

I have a relatively new P71 with 1 Tb SSD as my main drive and a 500Gb SSD as my secondary drive. No complaints so far. My previous laptop aw a W700 which was a reliable workhorse for years.
