The first Skylake laptops are Lenovo's Thinkpad P50 and P70 graphics workstations

Gordon Mah Ung | Aug. 11, 2015
Your chance to get a laptop with Intel's newest Skylake CPU is almost here. On Monday at the Siggraph show in Los Angeles, Calif., Lenovo announced two new mobile workstations stocked with the 6th-gen mobile chip and a dream checklist of advanced features.

The other features of the P70 aren't necessarily new, but still nifty. There's a Pantone X-Rite color calibrator built into the palm rest of the laptop. To calibrate, just close the 4K IPS panel, and it runs. No need to find a darkened room or plug in a clumsy USB adapter. 

Amazingly, Lenovo has shoehorned most of the same features into the P50, including the Thunderbolt 3, shared cooling, color calibrator, 64GB of ECC DDR4/2133, and up to three storage devices. It's basically a tinier version of the P70. You just have to give up one of those Thunderbolt 3 ports.
