Does anyone have a touchscreen on their P70 Thinkpad?

2016-01-24, 19:22 PM

I am looking to buy a P70, but they stopped offering the 17" touchscreen. I configured one before Christmas, but then never purchased.  Now it doesn't appear to be available.  Has anyone here been able to get one?  Does it work well?

 

I'm fearing that there were issues, so they stopped offering it.  Or maybe it's just that the part is unavailable?  If anyone here can offer fresh insights, I'd appreciate it because Lenovo customer service has been of absolutely no help.

I placed an order for one through the ibm epp site the day after they became available. At that time it changed the build time from around a week to 4-5 weeks. I found a better deal on a pre built one on dec 23rd and cancelled that order. As of today I'm still waiting for the pre built one while a coworker who ordered one a day after me without the touch screen got his 2 weeks ago. My guess (because no one from lenovo seems to be talking) is that they're having supply chain problems. 17" touch screens have been around for a year or two so I'm not too concerned about problems once they do get them in. I just wish someone from lenovo would let us know what the problem is and how long until they get it figured out.

An update for those waiting on the touch screen version.  My 20ER000PUS that I ordered on the 23rd of December finally shipped on January 30th.  I should recieve it tomorrow.

I decided I wasn't able to accept the uncertainty and wait any longer, so I went ahead and ordered a 17" Dell Inspiron 5759 touchscreen instead.  It has pretty nearly the same specs and ended up costing me just over $1000.00, which is about $700 cheaper than the P70.  Has the Skylake i7 processor instead of Xenon and a 256GB SS drive + 16 GB memory standard.  I should have it in 7-9 business days.
