Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2017 edition

:catmad: UPS have failed to deliver for a second day: yesterday they said they had an incomplete postcode (only at 3:30pm ...it's correct on my Lenovo invoice so it's hard to tell where it went wrong as you can't see it in the UPS portal), and today it was out for delivery all day, just never arrived. The CS agent I spoke to is going to send a message to the depot - probably by carrier pigeon! I just hope my X1C hasn't been rattling round their delivery van for 2 days :catsad:

Sadly this is not the first time I've had issues with UPS...

My X1C5 finally arrived today (it took 3 days to deliver within UK due to UPS).

For info: I ordered it on 24/4, it left factory on 16/5 (3 weeks 1 day later) and should have arrived on 22/5 (4 weeks after order) had UPS not had trouble. Around when I ordered the UK webstore was alternating between 4-5 or 3-4 weeks shipping (possibly depending on spec), so actually that was pretty accurate.

Simon

PS. it's a very nice machine

I'm glad to hear your computer finally made it, Simon!

 

My shipment from China seems to be running ahead of schedule.  UPS delivered my spare power supply today, and UPS tracking shows that the X1Yoga will arrive tomorrow. It was originally scheduled to arrive on Monday 5/29!

My daughter's X1 Yoga Gen2 showed up today way earlier than the original and even the updated dates which is awesome. We went thru the setup. It is 1607 Win 10 not 1703 and 1703 didn't come down from windows update so I had to use an ISO with 1703 to update it to the latest version of Windows, there is a link to get a download from MS for those who don't have MSDN ISOs I just don't have it handy. Also Lenovo puts some OEM Office 365 crap on the laptop that if you install Office 2016 Pro and have a key it will always ask you to activate even if you activated it. Here is a link to a fix from MS for those who want to get rid of the annoying activation screen: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3170450/repeated-activation-prompts-occur-after-installing-volume-license-version-of-2016

Outside of those 2 issues it went very well. The OLED screen is beautiful of course. We will see how my daughter likes it for college but I think its a great choice for her.

I might have to replace my X1 Carbon Gen 4 with one.

 

Lenovo Companion is awesome to keep the Yogas drivers and software updated from Lenovo.

 

Lenovo did install 64 bit Win 10 which was much appreciated.

I can report my X1 Yoga arrived early today. Great machine so far - the OLED display really is spectacular with great brightness and contrast. 

 

Mine is updating to Windows 10 1703 via the Update Assistant, downloaded from the Microsoft web site. All is running smoothly.

 

Wifi AC is wonderfully fast - I am copying files over from the old Yoga2 Pro really quick. 

 

Keyboard is awesome - SO much better than the Lenovo Yoga! Both the feel and the layout are a relief after 4 years of the standard Lenovo keyboard.

Yeah I noticed the wifi was super fast too.

 

Also I ran Crystal to check the NVMe PCIe Samsung SSD and it was wicked fast.

 

My daughter is woking late can't wait until she gets home to try it out.

 

After the 1703 update everything still seemed to work fine. I saw some posts out here about different issues so I had some concern but no worries.

 

Overall I am extremely happy with Lenovo on every aspect of this purchase from the sales to the delivery and especially the actual product, great job!

Mine should be shipping soon...

 

I ordered the Silver so am kind of excited to get it and see how that color looks in real life.
