Well I got the email that my order had been shipped (exactly 3 weeks after the day I ordered it).  According to UPS it's already left China and the scheduled delivery is this Friday 14th.  I find that difficult to believe but we'll see (I live in the Pacific Northwest).

 

I am glad that it did not take as long as the 40 days they were saying it was going to take to ship it, but still 3 weeks is kinda long, especially when you've been waiting 6 months since when the product was announced for it to become available.  I hope my 4th Gen holds out until it arrives ;-).

I did get the system today.  I was a little worried at first because it went from Alaska to Kentucky yester, but it did make it back west overnight.  I've already got Linux  (Gentoo) running on it.

@kudram Was that an X1 Carbon? There have been some issues with the touchpad, which seem to have been resolved on Windows but not Linux. As you are running Gentoo please could you post a comment over on this discussion: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/tp02_en/thread-id/75464/page/16 .

 

Even if the touchpad works well for you this feedback would be useful for the (X1C5 Linux) community. Thanks! :)

Wish I had come here first, I probably would have bought a surface at the Microsoft store this weekend instead of placing yet another Lenovo order. 

 

Ordered by phone July 11, told 5 to 7 days for shipment, online status was ship July 19, today it is ship July 23...  We'll see if it actually ships before I give up and drive back to the Microsoft store.  Then of course there's the time in transit to deal with.  They're allowing 5 days, expected arrival July 28.  Lovely, I'm at a conference that day.

Anyone knows what's going on? Ordered 2 X1 Carbon on June 28th, and the shipping date has been postponed day after day and now says July 31, more than one month after!

I think that's "standard" for Lenovo.  The rule of thumb seems to be: it will ship earlier than it says on their order status page yet still later than you'd expect.

 

Good luck.

Hi, I have a problem. I got a thinkpad x60 with wiped off hard disk, so I try to install it from a usb cd. After I change the startup sequence in the BIOS, it won't read the CD, the screen has nothing shown except a flashing cursor. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I placed my order on Sept 1 and it arrived on the 12th. It wasn't that fast, but faster than some on this thread.
