out of stock ThinkPad X1 Extreme Notebook Intel Core i7-8750H with 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD for $2,319 Delivered @ Lenovo eBay

PEACE

This laptop as configured is currently $3,058 in the Lenovo Education store.

I still can't afford to buy it, but posting here in case it saves a fellow OzBargainer some $$. I think it's a shame they don't have a model with less RAM and especially a smaller SSD on their eBay store, assuming it would cost less.

    Looks like a great price for the spec, form factor, but the screen seems to use PWM to regulate brightness,according to Notebookcheck. https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-X1-Extreme-i5-...

    Yes they are different SKU but I highly doubt they are going to use different FHD panel for different SKU.

    If a screen uses PWM then I don't think it is good to use for extended period of time. Personally I can't even stare at a display that has PWM for more than 20 minutes, otherwise the screen will give me headache,nausea and eyestrain.

    •  

      Bizarre. My mid-level X1 Yoga from 2017 doesn’t use PWM (I’m extremely sensitive to it, so I’d know if it did).

      It seems Lenovo took a step backwards with the latest gen.

    Exceptional price… If only they had it in the 4K HDR screen spec.

    In the 1080p spec this would make for an amazing dual purpose portable workstation/gaming laptop, still cant believe they managed to build something of this high quality at under 1.8kg in a 15.6" form factor

    So tempted. Best price I could get with Lenovo direct was $2600

    Great price. I especially like the 3yr warranty. Nice post.

      Thanks! I was so unsure whether to post it, thinking I might get shit on for posting a bad deal. But I hope it might help some people here. :)

  •  

    Do these come with a touch screen?

    •  

      They do, but this FHD display model doesn't have it. The 4K display model is touch screen.

  •  

    For reference as a benchmark, last month's Shopback had 12% cashback. So with this used on an education price (uni student) on a custom build:
    i7-8850H, 32gb RAM, FHD, 256GB SSD

    $2,688.98 - $322.68 (shopback)
    Total $2366.30

    This is a good price considering the larger SSD

    •  

      With 12% cashback, this machine with a smaller SSD (256GB) would be $2,189 on the Education store currently. I'm not sure how often the 12% cashback thing comes around, but that might be a better deal for anyone who doesn't require such a large SSD.

      Or with the exact same specs (i7-8750H, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD) this laptop would currently be $2,691 on the Education store with 12% cashback. Assuming my calculations are correct.

      Cashrewards informed me that Lenovo site cash backs don’t apply to Lenovo Education site. I suspect same for ShopBack.

      8750H is an overkill for such insignificant venting - it’ll just throttle with fan noise. Get 8300H for same real life performance.

        That is very useful to know, thank you.

        Is there somewhere I can read more about this? I haven't come across it in any of the reviews I've seen.

    I'm with you Duckman, a lesser model (whether sacrificing RAM, SSD… I'd settle for an i5) in the 1500 range and I'd be in.

  • +1 vote

    Insanely tempted. Just want 8750H/8850H, 16GB, 256SSD instead of 1TB, what a waste.

    •  

      if you don't care about the video card, grab this maybe? 4K screen, too. Video card is equivalent of MX150.
      https://www.lmc.com.au/products/596536/HP-ZBook-15V-Mobile-W...
      and just $1799

      •  

        I'd prefer the Lenovo due to the weight and battery - plus, the 1050Ti absolutely roasts the P600 in what I do (doesn't require double precision or ISV, so..).

        Just waiting for a deal.

        •  

          you didn't mention the video card in the requirements hence the suggestion :) for my gaming P600 is more than enough, rips through the games I love without issues. yet again HP or Dell I suggested below is a mobile workstation, for video/photo processing, CAD etc., that's where it excels. for casual gaming using the less needy titles it is plenty, though.

    as an alternative to the i5 version, you might consider the Dell Precision 3530.
    https://www.lmc.com.au/products/Notebooks_and_Laptops/Dell/5...
    if you go through me the price is $1299.
    I am not affiliated with the store, I negotiated a deal with the store.
    it is heavier than Lenovo, but bigger battery (92Wh), flicker-free screen (better screen overall I would say), better warranty (on site instead of depot warranty from Lenovo).
    for the $400 saved, get more ram and a second M.2 2242 SSD, and you'll be better off I reckon.
    That's the model I have and I love it. Get 10 hours out of it from a single charge.

    Great laptop — currently my main workstation. Got one last month via eBay 20% off as well, but a lower spec i5/16GB/512GB.

      How much did you pay, if you don't mind me asking?

    •  

      Was it a bargain? If yes, why didn't you list it?

      • +9 votes

        I didn't think OzBargainers would want the top-of-line ThinkPad as usually it's just E-series that's posted. You put up a premium laptop and people would say "$2000+ for an GTX 1050ti? There are better bargains!" without looking at all the other features, build quality, weight, etc.

      Scotty, do you think you could you work some magic and get them to list an 8GB/256GB model?

  • +1 vote

    Got this laptop a month ago for work. Great build quality, Keyboard/trackpad are good to use and it's quite light considering it's 15 inches (I have the 4k screen which is heavier than the HD version) Absolutely loving it. Highly recommend it!

    PS. fans can get loud and it can be hot if you have it on your lap.

    •  

      Appreciate the feedback! I've had my eye on this laptop for a few months now. Just wishing this one didn't have 1TB SSD and 16GB RAM, so I could afford it.

    •  

      Heard it gets hot and loud, CPU can throttle to 95W. That’s how my Macbook Pro burnt out. Took 5 years though. Still power = heat

    It's now saying out of stock. I think the seller might have just pulled the listing though, because I was watching the stock level. Unless somebody bought 4 at once. They did the same thing when I messaged them on eBay during the last 20% off promotion, asking if they could put an i7 on their store (at that time, they only had the i5). They said no, and then suddenly the i5 disappeared from their store as well, despite having plenty of stock. When the 20% off promotion ended, both models were listed again.

  •  

    CRAP, procrastinated all night and missed it

  •  

    Reckon it'll still be worth it if I get the i5, 8GB, 256GB SSD for $2500 with 3 years warranty from lenovo directly?

    • +1 vote

      Well it will still be an excellent laptop, if you can afford the extra $$. I wouldn't call it a bargain at that price though.

      •  

        Would you recommend this laptop for school? My laptop died on me so need one ASAP :/ I'm looking at the X1 or Lenovo yoga 920

        Thanks.

        •  

          If you can very easily afford it, sure. But personally I'd think the X1 Extreme was overkill for school work, and would look for something cheaper.

          •  

            @Duckman: What's something I should be looking at? I'm basically always using my laptop all the time, all our work is assigned online, and I play some casual games. Thanks

              @FattyHope: I'm not an expert on this topic, but the E490 or E490S look pretty good to me, at about half the price. I'm not a gamer though so I don't really know what kind of specs you want for that.

        •  

          You could get Dell XPS 15 9570 eBay using the promo code at $2,239 delivered, 15.6" FHD, i7-8750-H, 16GB RAM, GTX1050Ti 4GB, 512GB SSD, 97Wh battery and 1 year warranty.
