The Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga mobile workstation blends powerful processing with impressively light design. Lenovo manufactures this convertible laptop with carbon fiber and a tough, yet lightweight, magnesium-alloy frame for near-indestructible design.

As a convertible, the P40 Yoga combines the graphics power of a laptop and the portability of a tablet with the flexibility only a 2-in-1 computer can provide. Its multimode chassis converts to laptop, stand, tent or tablet mode, giving users complete freedom to work in any environment.

Frequently asked questions — usability

Q: How heavy is it?
A: At just under 4 pounds (3.97 pounds), the P40 Yoga is lighter than many laptops and some 2-in-1s. Although lighter 2-in-1s are available, the P40 Yoga is both lightweight and durable. It measures 13.3 x 9.3 x 0.8 inches.

Q: Will it connect to two separate external monitors simultaneously?
A: Definitely. If you don’t have a docking station, you can use the HDMI and mini display ports on the P40 to hook up two external monitors. If you don’t want to bother with cables, the Lenovo OneLink+ Dock is a great tool to help you easily display on multiple screens. The dock has connections for two external displays, a keyboard, a mouse and a printer — all through one cable. It also includes an “always on” USB charging port.

Q: Is the screen pressure-sensitive?
A: The screen has 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity, which is helpful for detailed sketches and notes.

Q: What is the little red dot in the middle of the keyboard?
A: The red dot in the center of the keyboard is an alternate mouse. You can also use the trackpad or a compatible digital pen (sold separately) to move the cursor.

Q: Can the 16GB of RAM be upgraded? Is there an extra memory slot?
A: No, the P40 only has one memory slot, so you cannot add an extra memory card.
