Poor X1 Extreme Built Quality / QC

2019-04-18, 1:57 AM

Hi all,


Just wonder anyone of you got the similiar build quality / QC issues with your new Thinkpad laptop... 


When I opened my X1 Extreme to install an additional RAM module, I was shocked by the poor build quality / QC of the new Thinkpad…


Following are the issues of my new X1 Extreme :


  1. One of the seven screws in the back cover is broken (i.e. the screw is lossy attached to the back cover and can’t be tightened);
  2. The insulator plastic sticker on the back cover is not properly sticked; (poor craftsmanship) and
  3. The insulator plastic sheets over the RAM sockets are not properly pasted (and have some obvious folding marks)
