Hi there, have you got a clue when in 2020 would it be on the market? I texted pre-sales support and they told me at earliest 2021..

First, I have no inside information.  I would guess, based on what it says here: https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/coming-soon/X1-Carbon-Gen-8-/p/22TP2X1X1C8

and language used on other announced, upcoming products, that middle this year is more likely.
