Thanks Guillo,

 

yes, but all solutions are sub optimal at this point of time.

Can you give me your exact bios number, maybe i might be able to reproduce.

Is it the 1.24.1.15 ?

Okay, here is the situation atm:

I updated to the newest version, like Guillo1 said in his last post.

Same as before.

Installed the older BIOS linked a few pages ago from this strange dropbox link, although i was kinda scared...

Little bit better.

Finally set the power management to 90% and voila, the machine is almost silent.

From time to time i can hear the fan, but that’s totally fine due to the fact my machine is multitasking heavily...

Never the less, now i am watching this long a.. post again and i am thinking to myself, what is going on here...

In addition, i realized a very strange behavior since i installed the old BIOS version (SMBIOSBIOSVersion
R0IET45W (1.23)) that displays like followed:

My temp sensor is jumpy, sometimes just a little, sometimes over 8°C...

Something is fishy with this thing, honestly if there is no improvement in the close future i will ship this thing in as often as necessary until i get a refund or an exchange...

Happy new year :)

Seems like Lenovo do not care for their customers. Sad story.

Darn, was just thinking about buying a x270.

 

Has all I want, and I use Lenovos since years. That sound behaviour is a no go for me.

 

Almost not understandable, how such a great product is made useless by such flaw.

 

Will research competitors (no LTE has me stay away from macbooks). Any hints are welcome.

Hi josefK1

 

I have not heard of any problems with the Thinkpad T470 (not of my knowledge), they also have tunderbolt..

If my firm had a policy of 14" inch laptops, I would buy that one...

 

Or i would go for the Microsoft Surface Pro or Laptop, if the screen should less than 14".

 

Bet regards
