I am undecided between purchasing Lenovo X1 carbon 5th Gen or 6th Gen. I must have a 4G LTE as I travel a lot .
There is a waiting time for 3-4 weeks to get a 6th Generataion compared to 1-2 days for 5th Generation
Is there a big difference in terms of performance and battery life between this two ie worth waiting 4 weeks for a 6th Gen

If the price is not much different, it will be worth to wait as X1C6 has 4 physical cores and X1C5 has 2 cores. In performance, there will be 30-50% differences. i7-7600 PASMARK SCORE: 5527 vs i7-8650: 8987. And, the resale value for X1C6 will be higher because of that. I don't know about battery life between C5 vs C6, but mine seems to be very good. With 2-3 hours daily usage, I don't have to charge it every day.
