Best price I've ever seen for this 2-in-1 laptop.
Customising through Lenovo website should get you around $3200.
Talking to Lenovo's store rep last week, I got a quote for $2890, but stuck around to wait for an eBay sale and I got this.
Snatched one a minute after 10am because I thought they might jack up the price after 10am, but it seems like it's here to stay.

    Is this better than the x1 carbon gen 6?

    • +1 vote

      Different. This is a 2-in-1 that allows it to be operated like a tablet. But it's also heavier and thicker.
      I dont know if other brand/model does this, but this one in particular retracts the keyboard on tablet mode so it's nicer to hold/operate.

      I've edited the post to also include X1 Carbon Gen 6 of the same spec.

    •  

      Hah, I was so close so snatching the carbon g6 up from grays @ $1.6kish but hesitated and someone else got there before me.

    •  

      Did a bit of research and basically the Yoga will have touch screen and pen. You can get the carbon with 300 nits screen which will also have the IR camera for Windows hello login which this wont have but the screen on this is obviously much better.

    Got the Gen 6 Carbon X1 from Amazon during the Boxing day deal for $2050.
    Great laptop, only issue is sometimes it heats up a little.

    •  

      What specs did you get for that price?

      • +1 vote

        Same specs as posted here. On the OZB listing it says the screen is 300 nits but couldnt see this specified on Amazon. Everything else seems the same. Even then though, using the laptop the colours are vibrant and screen seems bright. A difference of $350 in price though.

          Thanks man. I guess i will keep waiting for a better price then.

        •  

          Yep, this is a better deal if your line of work/hobby doesn't require better colour accuracy that comes with the 500nits display.
          Me, I uh.. lack financial responsibility and just wants the shiny stuff hence I got the HDR version.

          •  

            @burhanr: I want it for the outdoor brightness, well and the colour as it's mainly to be used for photography editing. Wondering how much the glossy screen will be offset by the brightness.

            •  

              @soob: If it's a somewhat overcast day like today in Sydney, I reckon it should be fine, I can't feel the glossy-ness. Very nice to operate, about as bright as my Samsung phone. I'd personally invest more on a shade in my mobile editing setup, after all, no laptop manufacturer can compete against the sun in terms of brightness.

    For %2500 you'd think you'd get a better GPU.

    •  

      Good GPU/Thin and Light

      Pick one.

    •  

      This is aimed to be a business laptop, the thermals are not designed for GPUs that output lots of heat. It already runs a fair bit hot when plugged in and using at the same time.

    How long is the warranty being offered here?

    •  

      Huh, neither listing from Futu/Shopping Express explicitly lists warranty. Which makes me a bit scared now haha.
      However, this listing with the same MPN/SKU on SE's website, lists 3 years manufacturer warranty.

      Either way, I'll get the laptop tomorrow and see what's in the box.
      Hopefully since this is an Australian model, Lenovo is required to provide warranty to a certain extent.

    •  

      When I bought my X1 Yoga a month ago, the Lenovo rep told me that ThinkPads have intentional warranties.

  •  

    Really like the look of the Lenovos. Been using a MBPr for the past 6 years but it keeps getting a black screen and shutting down. The only way I can keep it working is by downloading third party fan software, ramping the fans up to 3500rpm and minimising chrome tabs. I absolutely can't stand the new MBPr, touchbar is terrible, keys feel clunky, trackpad is too big. Don't get me started on the starting $3500 price tag
