Buying new machine - X1 Carbon Gen 8 vs X1 Yoga Gen 5

2021-01-21, 3:08 AM

In the market for a new laptop and if I compare spec for spec, I can get a X1 Yoga for about $50 more than the Carbon Gen 8.  What would you do, go for the Yoga or is the Carbon Gen 8 just awesome?

I have a 2x X1 Yoga 5th Gen, it is a complete failure in terms of power, CPU and fan management. When it works it is great device, but daily I get CPU throttling, followed by a constant fan blowing, or more occasionally, no fan at all and the PC becomes so hot that you can't barely touch it.

Same kind of issues reported for the X1 Carbon Gen 8 (they are basically the same devices with a different form factor)

Good luck !

Appreciate the links.  I think I'll still get the X1 Yoga, it's such a good price with EPP, I can't pass it up.
