    " They come with 3 Year Lenovo Warranty as well."
    this good. if I want to add accident repair combo how much does it cost ?

  • What's the 1080p display like?

    I heard the top display is really good, unsure about this one.

    • I've got the 1080p display on my X1 Carbon (Gen 6) and it's superb

    • +6

      The 1080p display in the X1C7/8 is a 'low power' 400-nit display (assuming it's the non-touch variant) that is new in comparison to those used in previous generations. There are a few different panels with varying response times and it's kinda down to chance which display you'll get. Overall, its quite colour accurate and the matte display with relatively bright 400-nit output make it really versatile. I've had both the Gen 7 with an i7-8565U and a Gen 8 with a i7-10510U with pretty much identical spec as above (16gb RAM/512gb SSD/1080p display) and they're excellent machines with battery life of around 8-12 hours of real world usage (web browsing with Microsoft Edge, music through bluetooth headphones, brightness 80% on battery saver).

      If your primary use in media consumption and you're often around power points, then the 4K option is obviously much better but the spec listed here is solid for my use.

  • Nice specs apart from the screen which is quite dim

    • +5

      It's likely a 400-nit display, not the 250-nit used in lower tier Lenovo models and is actually quite bright.


      • Ok thats not too bad then.
        Shame they got rid of the wide gamut HDR QHD screen in the Gen 6 model. That was the best screen option for a 14". Now they have a pointless 4k model instead with bad PWM

        • +2

          I had an X1 Yoga Gen 3 with that screen, and at 14" it was a stellar screen, but it is what it is. Sometimes when I'm watching movies/TV shows I wish I had higher than 1080p but for everything else and the (at least) 2-fold increase in battery life I'm happy to make a compromise.

  • +4

    Pretty underwhelming specs for the price.

    i7-10510U - 14nm quad core cpu. Could have gone with a 10nm CPU.

    Wifi 5 instead of Wifi 6

    1080p display instead of QHD or UHD.

    LPDDR3 instead of LPDDR4X

    I know the X1 Carbom is supposed to have good build quality but it's overpriced in Australia even with a discount.

    • +8

      Indeed, a lot of computers are overpriced in Australia

    • +3

      You are paying for the nice compact form factor and above average build.
      Good for commuters, uni etc.

    • +1

      Not really given the price of competing laptops with similar specs AND build quality/size. You are paying for the compact, high-end chassis here.
      Sure in the scheme of things that is still a rip off given the cost of the hardware components but all premium laptops are a rip off.

    • +4

      You're basically paying for a premium product. The X1 carbon also usually doesn't have bleeding edge specs.

      Porsches are overpriced too you know for what you actually get!

      • +2

        But you get all the ladies with one of them… The other is just another car

    • +2

      Would you like to provide some alternatives with similar or better specs?

      • +7

        Shellshocked has 0 posts. I'd say alternatives will not be offered.

          Lets see if Shellshocked can surprise us!

          • @congo: Be warned - you may be shell shocked if you get a response!

          You can have a look at the HP ProBook 435 G7 x360.

          Cpu: 8 core Ryzen 4700u - a lot faster then Intel
          16Gb Ram so-dimm - spare slot for another 16gb upgrade
          512 nvme ssd
          1000 nit 72% NTSC screen. Gorilla Glass, touch screen.
          Wifi 6
          Win 10 64 Pro
          Usb C supports charging and display port.
          Business grade build quality from Aluminium. Not as good as X1 but this has much better specifications and is easily upgradeable.

          Only no Thunderbolt due to it initially being a closed Intel standard until recently.

          If you have a HP corporate account. Price comes down to about $1800 from $2140.


          Looking at reviews it's able to maintain 25w tdp, even on battery, and doesn't throttle like the X1.

            @shellshocked: The target market for these dont care about how fast the cpus are or upgrading

            • -1

              @Freestyle: Thanks for your response. Please provide a link indicating what the target market is for this laptop and that people want a slow processor, with no upgrade options, as long as it looks good.

        • Posted an alternate if you care to look. Have a good day.

      • Probably a Macbook Pro for $15k :P

        • You would be surprised what you can find with a little bit of research.

    • +2

      It’s an X1 carbon.

      They’re very well built and super light, near enough to 1kg with a very usable screen size. I’ve had two of them and they are close to bullet proof.

    • I've learned that specs come second to build quality. I currently have one of these and it is fantastic.

      I've also had one of those bargain dell gaming PC's which has huge specs vs the price and it was absolutely trash.

      • and unless you are gaming or doing some heavy workloads specs mean shit as long as its a latest gen cpu

  • +1

    Is this the WWAN model? It isn't clear by this ad.

    • It's not the WWAN model, here are the specs by looking up the SKU (20R1S0KH00):

      Processor: 1x Intel Core i7-10510U Processor(Core i7-10510U)
      Memory: 1x 16GBLPDDR3-2133
      Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64(EN:English)
      Hard Drive: 1x 512PCIeNVMe
      Wireless Network: 1x Intel Wireless-AC 9560 2x2ac with BT5.0
      Ports: 1x HDMI 1.4
      Camera: 1x IR&HD Camera with Shutter & Mic
      Graphics: 1x Intel UHD Graphics
      Monitor: 14.0 FHD
      Included Warranty: 3YR Onsite

  • Decent price…

  • I remembered paying over $2000 for the IBM T40p. It was a long… time ago.
    It is still working today :-)

    Sure the quality of Lenovo won't be the same as IBM, but build wise they are still up there.

    • My X220 is going strong but my X201 does random restarts under load mind you I had to change the OEM for a brand new one.

    • Wasn't IBM sold to Lenovo?

      • Lenovo was basically designing and manufacturing the machines for IBM and when IBM decided to get out of PCs/Laptops, they just sold the whole unit to Lenovo proper.

    Intel 10th generation U processors are a joke. i7-10510U has approximately the same/slightly worse performance than the 8th gen i5-8257U/8259U chip (found in lower end MacBook Pro). 2133mhz ram is really slow for 2020, nearly all high-end laptops have moved on to 3733mhz. Only thing I like about this is the keyboard - ThinkPad keyboards are near the top when it comes to laptop keyboards, however, the new magic keyboard on the new MacBooks are really nice as well.

    • So what CPU do you recommend for value for money? the new AMD Ryzen series?

      • +3

        Ryzen 4500U laptops often pop up here for just over $1000 and they offer great value. 4500U beats i7-10510U and even the i7-1065G7. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/553165 was a great deal, just had to put up with a 250 nit display with not so accurate colours but other than that it was a very solid laptop for just $1000.

        • Thanks, yeh I'm looking to get laptop similar to the specs on that one

          I currently have HP G3 840 which has I5-6300 2.4ghz CPU

          How much faster will the 4500U be vs I5-6300??

          • @Homr: The performance gains are quite substantial, should be around a 40-45 percent performance increase in single core performance and around 2 times better performance in multi core. So it is quite an upgrade. Graphics are still nowhere near good enough to play demanding games but that's to be expected with integrated graphics.

            • @Could Be Better: oh wow thanks for the info. I should've updated long ago then, now I have to wait for another deal to come by :(

  • overpriced for sure

    • +1

      Very good price for this specific laptop. Over priced for a laptop based on specs

  • Does it support any active stylus pens?

    • Screen is not a touchscreen. So that's a no.

  • I have this exact one but with the i5 processor and paid $100 more 2 months ago. It is fantastic and I would buy one again.

    Highly recommend if you are carrying a laptop with you daily.

  • Seems pretty overpriced to me. Sure it's a premium build, but it's missing a discrete graphics card at this price point and the screen is behind some.

    To me the XPS 15 is going for around $2500 with similar specs, but with the addition of a discrete GPU and the screen brightness gets a bump to 500 nit:


    I also noticed if you're willing to give up a bit in regards to the screen and overall quality feel, the Dell Vostro lineup has similar specs at a drop in price (make sure you check out the model options you're closer to $1800 to be equivelent to the XPS 15 in internals. Though you still have a smaller battery and lesser screen)

    • +2

      The XPS15 weighs 70% more and isn't built as well. It's more expensive and only slightly brighter. I'm not sure that's a clear cut better deal.

      Ultimately, someone buying a carbon is after an ultralight laptop, which will have some compromises in price and capability.

  • The Recomputed page has a link to Lenovo's web site, although not to the same model, which is a bit odd.
