Alongside a raft of ThinkPad updates, Lenovo is also announcing a new monitor to pair nicely with those Thinkpads. The Lenovo ThinkVision P40w is a rather impressive looking product, offering a 39.7-inch 21:9 panel, featuring a 5120x2160 WUHD resolution. And that’s not all.

The new P40w is also a dock for your laptop, thanks to the single-cable Thunderbolt 4 port which can charge the laptop at up to 100 Watts. It can provide up to 12 ports from the monitor, including two Thunderbolt 4 ports, and one USB Type-C. Not only that, but Lenovo includes an eKVM, which allows you to control two devices from this single monitor and dock combination. The extra Thunderbolt 4 port also would allow you to daisy-chain another 5K monitor.

The 21:9 panel offers 98% of the P3 color space, and is factory calibrated for an error level of less than 2.0, and includes hardware-level blue light reduction, to keep the proper white balance while still reducing blue light emissions.

There is a built-in RJ-45 jack as well, allowing the monitor to be your network hub, and it supports Wake-On-LAN, PXE, and MAC pass-through. Lenovo is the first manufacturer to retail a professional monitor with Intel Active Management Technology built-in to integrate with the vPro on ThinkPads, and provide the extra management capabilities that provides.

If you have always wanted a big monitor with high resolution, wide gamut support, and of course the management capabilities of Intel AMT, Lenovo has you covered.

The new ThinkVision P40w will be available in June, starting at $1699 USD.

    We waited too long for a monitor with built-in backdoor (a.k.a Intel AMT).

    In the last year or so, it really seems like Lenovo monitors have gone from a bad joke to some serious HW. High quality LG panels certainly helps, and they're bringing good features and build quality in the ThinkVision and Legion lines. Now if they could only get their website to not suck for advanced feature/spec search.

    Everything looks great except the brightness. In a sunny office (which is great) 300 nits is unusable.

    I have a monitor capable of 300nits and I use it at 15/100 (lowering it to 10/100 in the night) not to get a tan while working.
    I wonder how you can work an entire day with more than 300nits shot in your eyes.
    You office is clearly not the best environment where to work with a PC.

    Reflective sunlight can easily be around 1000 nits and people have no problem reading for hours in the sun.

    It's only an issue for the eyes if the ambient light is dark, otherwise a 600 nit screen is perfectly comfortable.

    I took was worried about 300, bought a monitor with 350.

    Currently set with a window behind it, during daytime it’s at ~30/100 brightness.

    So I guess it didn’t matter at all. It will never get set to 80+.

    > 300 nits.

    Get the fuck out

    I have zero interest in the 5x2 form factor, but I love the connectivity options. I've been waiting for options like this setup.

    Why does it include a USB Type B port? I've only ever seen those on printers. If this is used as a hub to a printer, only the printer side would need a Type B connector, not the display, so I'm stumped.
  • thomasg - Saturday, February 27, 2021 - link

    I would assume that's the upstream-port to the host controller, when the USB-hub should be available even though there's no PC connected via Thunerbolt, just HDMI or DP.

    I.e. you connect your PC to the Type-B port on the display, to use the Type-A ports for other devices.
