2014 X1C questions

2014-02-24, 15:52 PM

I can't find the new X1C models in PSREF so I'm asking here:

 

1. The base non-Touch model comes with a 1600x900 TN panel. The upgrade to a 2560x1440 IPS panel costs $150. However the price difference between the non-Touch and Touch versions of the X1C is also $150 and the Touch version includes the 2560x1440 Multi-touch IPS in its base model configuration. Given that the price is the same, why would I want to buy the non-Touch model with IPS panel? It seems to me that even if I have no current plans to use the touch interface it's available for free so I might as well get it.

 

2. The sales configurator shows two 65W AC adapters, "65W AC Adapter - AG" and "65W Slim AC Adapter - US (2pin)." There is no difference in price. What is the difference between the two, i.e. why would I prefer one over the other?

1. Simple, some companies don't need touch functionality, or have plan to support touch screen in their rollout roadmap. Also, touch screen version is glossy, while the non-touch screen is matte. So i guess it comes to usage scenario. For some companies having more features that you don't use are just wasteful, or adds complexity to the management of the system using standard system image or parts support. 


2. Power adapter wise.

The non slim version is like the old ThinkPad 65 watts adapter you use on the X61s.

While, the slim version is thinner but wider.

Again, this comes down to usage scenario.

 Thanks. That distinction makes my decision very easy ;)

Touchscreen is also sort of matte: http://www.notebookcheck.com/fileadmin/Notebooks/Lenovo/ThinkPad_X1_Carbon_Touch_20A8003UGE/LenX1_Carbon_29.jpg

Maybe not as matte as the normal non-Touch screen, but still "anti-glare".

Now you're making my decision much harder. Thanks (I think ;) )

Re: 2014 X1C questions - Power Adapter

2014-02-25, 18:36 PM

I am reposting what I posted here:

 

65W adapter included with X1 Carbon:

http://support.lenovo.com/en_PH/product-and-parts/detail.page?DocID=PD027019

Weight: 235 g (0.518 lbs)

Size: 105 x 44 x 28.5 mm

Volume: 0.13167 liters

 

Optional (separate purchase) slim 65W adapter:

http://support.lenovo.com/en_PH/product-and-parts/detail.page?DocID=PD027204

Weight: 235 g (0.518 lbs)

Size: 105 x 65 x 17 mm
Volume: 0.116025 liters

 

So while very close, for the extra adapters I ordered the slim type, since the volume is smaller.  I just received the slim adapters and I'm happy with the choice.  I think they will pack better in a shoulder bag or briefcase.

 

If you do not need the RapidCharge function, the 45W adapter (like the T440s uses) is also an option.

 

Also note that the gigabit Ethernet adapter is proprietary and is not listed on Quick Pick.  It is FRU # 04X6435 in case you want a spare or misplace it.

Thanks for the info. With an X1C "you can never be too rich or too slim" -- or so I've been told ;)

i use the slim 65 watts adapter from my IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro with my new X1 Carbon gen 2, ThinkPad Yoga and T440s. Great adapter. Also it doesn't heat up as much due to the greater surface area for heat dissipation.

I have one, and the display is matte. Not glossy at all.
