Hi all, I'm a teacher looking to spend up to around $2000 on a solid thin and light for school. From my research the x1 carbon seems pretty good for my needs. My partner has an XPS and swears by it, but the new ones lacking ports bother me (I plug into a different hdmi port up to 6 times a day and lots of usb type a, so needing a dongle for those is a big drawback).
I've just found that lenovo has an education discount section, and I can get a gen 7 x1, but with 10th gen processor, 16gb ram and 512gb ssd for $2044.
Good deal? (AUD) https://imgur.com/a/QruXiTJ
I don't need a dedicated gpu and long battery life is a must, 1080p screen is fine.
The gen 8 doesn't seem to offer much more than the 7 and comes at a $600 price premium.
Just checking if there are any other models with similar stats that I should be considering before I jump? Thanks!
