16-inch IPS screen

One of the main highlights of this model is, without a doubt, its wide 16 inch screen, which has an aspect ratio of 16:10, providing more useful vertical space compared to traditional screens. Image quality is ensured by the use of an IPS LCD panel, known for delivering consistent colors and wide viewing angles. Users can choose between four different configuration options for this screen:

  • A solution with FHD+ resolution, 300 nits brightness and 45% coverage of the NTSC spectrum;
  • A touch-sensitive variant with the same features as above, adding blue light protection;
  • Another FHD+ version that increases brightness to 400 nits and reaches the entire sRGB color space, also incorporating protection against blue light;
  • And, for those who demand maximum image quality, a 4K UHD configuration, offering 800 nits of brightness, full coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, as well as HDR400 and Dolby Vision support.

Regarding connectivity, the device is well served. The ThinkPad P16v includes two Thunderbolt 4-enabled USB-C ports, offering lightning-fast transfer speeds and support for high-resolution external displays.

Furthermore, it has a traditional USB-A port, HDMI 2.1 output for connecting to screens and projectors, Gigabit Ethernet for access to high-speed wired networks, in addition to Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 for next-generation wireless connectivity.
