Chance of getting a Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2018 without defective pixel or dust under screen equals 0?

2018-04-20, 21:18 PM

Hi,

 

I recently ordered the new Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2018 with i7-8550U, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD and HDR Display (Campus Edition). The first unit had two red glowing pixels and dust between the digitizer and the display layer. So I sent it back and ordered a new one - this one was even worse, much more dust under the screen (seen as dark black spots). See my other post for pictures.

Yeah, I sent it back and so one and so one. In total had four devices. 3/4 had red glowing pixels. 3/4 had dust under the screen.

 

That is not acceptable for such a premium device.

"Premium device" is not what I'd call that laptop. I can tell you know that you're most over paying for whatever it is your looking for in a laptop. There are lots of laptops companies like Lenovo will make that are like figureheads rather than prized electronics. They are there so they have multiple good to sell. The quality on such products may not be well as you may expect from other Lenovo products.

I'm new here so maybe I'm missing something, but what or how exactly is an X1 Yoga 3rd Gen not meeting your criteria for a premium device?

Don't get me wrong- I don't really have a reason to care, but I'm positive you'd be the singular person to suggest that (if I'm reading that right).
