There is no way a Notebook with a Quadro P5000 starts at $1849 .. Please correct that info. Lenovo P70/71 notebooks start with entry level Quadros , for example the current $1800 P70 comes with M600M and not M5000M

The P5000 card alone is $2500 , and MXM notebook ones are even more expensive than Desktop ones.

The Lenovo P70 notebook with Maxwell Quadro M5000M is on SALE now for $4300 and was more expensive when new .

Expect the P71 with a Quadro P600 (and not P5000) to be in the $1800 price range .

"The ThinkPad P71 features up to Intel 7th generation (Kaby Lake) Core i7 or Xeon E3-v6 processors, in addition to supporting up to the most-powerful mobile workstation GPU currently in Nvidia’s arsenal, the Quadro P5000."

Note: "up to" means that it's the highest configurable component.

"The Lenovo ThinkPad P51s, P51, and P71 will be available this March, starting at $1,049, $1,399, and $1,849, respectively."

Note: "starting at" means that it's the minimal configuration.

There's no change required. I never stated that all of the systems come with the P5000.

I bought a used/refurbed Thinkpad W series (what these new laptops replaced) and When found out that they BGA'ed the dedicated graphics card I was floored, I wanted to upgrade it.

Never buy a Lenovo or Thinkpad again. I was hoping with their Workstation laptops, stuff could be upgrade since they were not consumer models. I am only buying Clevo, Sager, Eurocom or Origin PC now.

you cant upgrade using older MXM slot... so even if they had the older slots , the new MXM cards would not work.

This is true for older Clevo and Sager and etc Models which use older MXM slots. buy an old sager and try to upgrade it to Pascal GTX card you will fail . Forget about upgrading old Notebooks GPU ... mostly will never work with newer cards.
