Lenovo made a new business laptop that’s thinner and nearly as light as a MacBook Air, meant for people working on the go. It also made a meatier desktop replacement that will definitely challenge people’s biceps as they work out of hotels and airports.

The ThinkPad P1 is slimmer and lighter than Lenovo’s earlier workstation laptops, measuring in at 0.72 inches and 3.76 pounds. Despite being almost as light as a MacBook Air, the P1’s specs are in a completely different class. The P1 has a 15.6-inch 4K display, an Nvidia Quadro P series graphics card, and an 8th Gen Intel Core or Xeon processor that can reach up to 4.6GHz speeds. Couple that with up to 64GB of memory and 4TB of storage, and it seems like a solid video conferencing and document-storing device. It starts at $1,949.

Meanwhile, the ThinkPad P72 presents itself as more of a desktop alternative for traveling on the go. It has storage options up to 6TB with 128GB of RAM. Its 17.3-inch display is powered by Nvidia’s Quadro P5200 graphics card. Like the P1, it also supports up to Intel Xeon or Core i9 processors. The P72 starts at $1,799, with its lower cost likely coming in part because of its lack of 4K. It’s also a lot heavier for a thin laptop, weighing 7.5 pounds. Maybe you can also use it for lifting weights on the go for light workouts without a gym.

Both laptops come out at the end of this month.
