  • I read 1x thunderbolt, not 2

    • It has two Thunderbolt 3 ports.

  • Does this have the integrated pen?

    • In the specs, it stated

      Pen: ThinkPad Pen Pro

      You can send a message to CA for clarification.

      • I've ordered :-). I was considering an Lenovo L380 Yoga, but at this price too good to pass up although I would have like the option for 16GB.

    • I’m not aware of any X1 Yoga model without the pen.

    I would say that the screen is glossy and rather dim at 240nit. also the battery could be larger. but it's ok for this weight.

    Only 8GB RAM and not upgradeable - not great if you need to do real work on this thing.

    • +2

      Ah thanks for the heads up, that kills this for me.

    • +1

      How is 8GB RAM not enough to do real work? I was doing minor video editing, photoshopping on my PC before I upgraded and it was fine.

      • +1

        Your version of 'real work' and others will differ.

        My laptop has 16GB,and it certainly gets used.

        • I find 16GB a bit limiting. 32GB on a laptop is better, but the battery life sucks, cooling can be a significant issue and lets not discuss weight.

          I looked at the 16GB that is also available, but the extra $800 failed the value test for it's intended use case.

    • I was about to call bullshit, but did some research and you are indeed 100% spot on.
      Memory is soldered and there are no SO-DIMM slots so any upgrade is totally out of the question.
      The only sensible option here is to future proof a little and go 16GB RAM, and without this as an option it it has a limited future.

      On the bright side the storage is M.2 NVME so it's pretty much just the RAM issue that kills it.

      Disappointed Lenovo have gone this way.

    Anyone heard the new foldable x1? Thats gonna be a great hit

    • +1

      Lenovo really saved the Thinkpad brand from going into obscurity like what HP has done. Good management and so innovative.

  • Its a good deal but I hate buying from Computer Alliance. Whenever they have something on special, you just know that by the end of the month everyone will have the same deal and probably even better.

  • Is the 3 year warranty from them or Lenovo? Also SSD upgradable + any deals?

    • +2

      The warranty is from Lenovo, but you're also protected under Australian Consumer Law.

      You can upgrade the warranty once to include onsite warranty (so if anything goes wrong, they come to you to fix it).

      The SSD is M.2 socketed (not soldered) and upgradeable. The RAM is not upgradeable unless you can get chips and have the equipment to work on these boards.

    This or the Surface Pro 6?

    Gen 4 is just around the corner, I expect a few more deals on Gen 3 X1 Yoga's in the coming weeks.

    If you need no power, memory or storage this is awesome for you

    • Haha if you are after a tablet and gets suckered into a "deal", this is the notebook for you

    • this has more power than 7th Gen i7 and the storage is easily upgradeable.

    • It depends on how efficient the software you use is.

      For coding, this is more than enough. Hell, I still do heavy-duty coding on my (Linux) travel laptop that has 2GB RAM. The constrained RAM is a good reminder when you go and try to write bloated code.

      If 8GB RAM isn’t enough, and you’re not running multiple VMs, then you need to question why your software is chewing up so much RAM.

      • Is the answer Chrome?

        • Chrome is never the answer to anything.

          • @DisabledUser77742: Last night it was the answer to the question "What is using 2GB of memory and has 40 processes running?"

            • @mathew42: That’s why I use lynx.

  • Just bought. Wondering if a new Evo 970 M.2 NVMe be added on the PCIe while retaining the existing 128GB SSD?

  • +1

    Bought thanks OP, great price

    • +1

      Yes, great price for a premium notebook.

      I'm eyeing on this notebook, but lost in the bidding. 😂

      • Unlucky with the auction, good luck with your hunt.

        I was considering the previous Zenbook Flip deals, but glad I waited for this, really like the Lenovo X1 series.

  • items seems to be out of stock…

    • Yeah they obviously only had 12 units in stock.

  • Ended up getting the Surface Book 2 i5 for $1550.
