It is very unfortunate that the X1 has the power inlet on the left hand side and not at the back of the device, as with the T430s. But as most desktop setups do have power outlets build in the table top or at the back of the table it would be best for cable stress to have at least a 90degrees plug that allows the cable to go to the back and not stick on the side.
Is there a (compatible) power supply with 90 degree plug available? Or can I buy compatible plugs at a hardware or electronics store?

Presumably the power jack was relocated to the side of the X1C in order to allow the display panel to lay down flat with the main system unit. I agree that the side placement of the power jack is therefore less than ideal for the reasons you gave.
I have seen right angle adapters on eBay and Amazon for the previous round power plugs, e.g. BiXPower LC80 Right Angle 7.9 x 5.5mm Connector Converter for IBM / Lenovo Laptop Power Adapters but not (yet?) for the new rectangular plugs.

Just got new Thinkpad and for a Left Handed person, the power cord sticking out on left side is in the way of my notepad. Obviously, Lenovo doesn't have Lefties in mind. Need right-angle / 90 degree cord.
Lenovo Team, please advise where we can obtain. Thank you!!
