Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 Laptop $2673.30 Delivered (i7-9750H, 16GB/512GB, GTX 1650) @ Lenovo eBay

961

You get a 9th gen Intel processor, 16gb of RAM and a 3 year warranty. Was $255,588.43. An extreme 98% discount for an Extreme laptop!

MOD: eBay's original price was obviously a typo and do not put it back in the title, as this has been reported multiple times as a joke post. The current eBay price ($2673.30 before any discount) is exactly the same as ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 on Lenovo's website). Please vote accordingly.

      It’s an eBay typo mate, the RRP is actually $355,558.43!

    So can someone explain why this laptop costs as much as a house

      What house? You cant buy a block of land for that price.

      If you look closely, there’s a small RGB strip above the keyboard, which increases performance of the dedicated GPU by 100x, thus justifying the previous price.

      •  

        did you say it has RGB? wonder why lenovo never marketed this as a 'gaming' laptop?

  • +2 votes

    OP has made a mistake in the title, the price on Ebay isn't showing as $255,558.43. That would be utterly ridiculous.

    It's actually $255,588.43. Please update the title OP, before you mislead any more people with those fake RRP's.

  •  

    Man, the crazy prices we were paying during the shortage!

  •  

    Thanks OP! Bought 10 yesterday at the full price. Hopefully ebay can apply the price difference

  •  

    Time to claims price protection

    $255,558.43 looks like nothing lately, after looking at current house prices.

    I sold my house for this laptop a few days ago. Omg.

    That's what I call a bargain

    Worst laptop ever. We got some for work and they’ve had endless problems. I have to reboot every single morning to get the thing to function properly. And it’s constantly rebooting by itself. Weird thing is I don’t get any windows error and nothing in event log, it just decides to reboot when I’m half way through doing something. Not just a one off either as some of the other people at work have the same issue.

    •  

      We have this and it don’t self reboot. If ITS or owners indiscriminately update with latest Vantage updates, then you’re at mercy of Lenovo quality control - not good place.

      I’d love to know the most reliable (software and hardware) Wintel laptop and buy it. Once upon a time it was ThinkPad T series, I’m sure it ain’t that now.

      • +1 vote

        I'd like to know what is the most reliable too. Based on my experience Dell Xps is the worse. Surface Book is ok but has had some issues but the service is good. Soon I'll be getting a $7k HP Zbook from work so I'll see how that performs. For that price the expectations are high.

        Apple seems to not be immune to reliability issues either. I had a top range new Macbook 15 and it would randomly turn off. Then there are the keyboard issues. I also don't like that the ssd is soldered. If anything dies on the motherboard after the warranty expires you have an expensive paperweight

        •  

          The advantage of Apple devices is that every problem is an Apple problem to fix - there's no blame shifting.

          For Lenovo X1X/P1 there are 1st party drivers (ie. MS, Intel), 1.5 party drivers (Lenovo customised 1st party drivers), 2nd party drivers (Lenovo) and 3rd party drivers (attachments). Look at Lenovo forums for proof.

          Drivers is the weakness of the Wintel model - erroneously deemed as its greatest strength. Vista was deemed failure because of initial Nvidia drivers.

          Even MS failed when they couldn't make Surface work with (1.5 party) power drivers.

          •  

            @AlexF: Yes good point and I agree. Due to this and other reasons overall apple service is probably the best. Unfortunately in practice MacOS just does not have the broad software compatibility windows does so is often just not an option

            Also Surface is generally pretty good with drivers (I've had several) a while after release date once the customers do their beta testing for them

            •  

              @qvinto: Unfortunately, there are no Surface mobile workstations - “G” processors are based on “U” processors which are high efficiency not high performance.

      •  

        Recently got a matebook and it's pretty good. Price is decent on sale

    •  

      I wouldn't buy a second ThinkPad either.

      Bought my X1 Carbon Gen 6 three years ago, some small glitches are just so annoying. I have the "Power on when AC plugged" option enabled, and it sometimes also powers it on when I unplug the AC. The CPU sometimes drops to extremely low clock speed, like 0.4GHz, even if I'm just using Zoom. I have cleaned the dust and reapplied paste multiple times, doesn't help.

      Contacted support in the warranty period, not helpful. Speaking to someone overseas and they have their loud Samsung ringtone constantly playing in the background. Told them I have already upgraded BIOS and TB firmware, and they email me after days still telling me to upgrade TB firmware. I just gave up.

      And now, just two weeks after my warranty expires, the battery no longer charges and showing 0%.

      I have an X1 Extreme Gen2 with the i7 9750h and it has been a dream. I upgraded SSD in it to a 1tb Kingston A2000 and upgraded the stock 2x4gb ram sticks to 2x32gb which has made resume from sleep take way longer. Planning to eventually add a 2nd 1tb A2000 as very impressed with it. I have the model with the high brightness 1080p screen and it's great even outdoors under pergola.

      Laptop is not a gaming laptop but attempting to play Warframe on it the temperature quickly shot above 90c and FPS would drop below 60fps. I have downloaded Throttle stop and set it up to undervolt my cpu by 200mV on bootup and I have also restricted the turbo speed to max at 3.5 as the cpu would keep boosting above 4ghz for very little benefit in my tasks. I always use the computer on a mesh cooling pad that I carry in my backpack with the computer and temps are stable around 70-75c and in Warframe easily get over 90fps.

      Only downside to the laptop is that the battery life is not very good but I guess that is to be expected of a workstation laptop since you only get around 2-2.5hrs out of it. If you put on battery saver from full battery you can squeeze it to 3hrs or a little over.

      •  

        What’s the difference between “a gaming laptop” and “a high performance laptop” that X1X/P1 is? If a laptop overheats during gaming, it’ll certainly overheat during video rendering or transcoding.

      •  

        Doesn't sound like a dream if you have to adjust it so much, carry a cooling pad with you to make it work reliably, and have terrible battery life with only a FHD screen

    I honestly don’t know how people are replying to this seriously… it’s clearly a joke that seems to be going over a lot of people’s heads.

    •  

      The original RRP is a joke but the sale price is correct and matches the deal on Lenovo web store. Not sure that it's actually a deal though as I got the same laptop with 8gb of ram rather than 16gb for just over $2k a couple years ago. I find it weird the price has gone up so much.

        I7 9th gen chip wasn't available 2 yrs ago.

          Sorry my mistake, just checked my emails and it was March 2020. Earliest capture by the way back machine was Aug 2020 though but they were $2177 back then.

          http://web.archive.org/web/20200812064509/https://www.lenovo...

          Although it looks like the new base model is double the RAM (16gb) and storage (512gb) I don't think those 2 upgrades represent $500 in value.
