Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2018 edition

Anyone else had their X1C shipping date pushed back? I ordered Oct 1 and the estimate then was 1-2 weeks. On the order tracking page, shipping estimate is now Nov 26, which is a bit absurd. Do I just ignore that, or is this an indication it will be severely delayed?

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2018 edition

Oh boy. This thread is big kick to the balls. I just ordered my 20KHCTO1WW customized on the 9th. This is the first time I've bought something from Lenovo. I hope I get lucky and no bad surprises on the shipping.

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2018 edition

So, let's see how this goes.  Order a slight customized X1 Extreme (20MFCTO1WW), mainly for the Qwerty keyboard (as I'm in france). 

 

Order placed on the 4th October, confirmed on the 5th. Initial "ready to ship" date was 2 weeks for order date - so the 18th/ 19th. 

Just got an email today saying there's a delay and estimated shipping date is now 23 - OCT. 

 

Will edit this post once there's some activity. Hoping I get it before November though, since I would like to be able to use it.

Can't seem to edit my earlier post so copying part of it here and adding the new developments.

Now: 17 Oct, got a shipping notification, expected delivery date is the 23rd.

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2018 edition

At least in the US, Lenovo estimated delivery times seem wildly inconsistent.  When placed an order last Wednesday Oct. 10, the model I ordered states "Same Day Shipping."  I ordered it later in the afternoon, so I wasn't surprised that it didn't ship "same day," that would be unreasonable. I did expect that it would ship some time on Thursday since that was the next full business day, but it did not.  It finally did ship Friday.  That is hardly the same thing as  "same day," but not a big deal, all was good.

 

On Sunday I got a shipping update about a delay and expected delivery wasn't going to be until Monday, Oct. 21.

On Monday I received a follow up saying the date was going to be earlier and it would arrive end of day Friday, Oct. 19

Tuesday I received a follow up saying the date was again going to be earlier and that the laptop would arrive Thursday, Oct. 18

Today a fourth update stating that it was out for delivery on UPS and to expect it by end of the day today.

 

In other words, the delivery dates from Lenovo seem like pretty much of a guessing game until the unit is actually out on a truck for delivery.

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2018 edition

It seems I got lucky. Ordered a custom X1C6 on the 15th, shipped out on the 18th and I hope to get it in California by the 24th. Original estimate was it would ship out on Nov 6th, so I’m quite happy reguardless.

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2018 edition

Here's the timeline of my semi-custom X1C6 shipped to New York:

 

Specs: 8550u, 16Gb, 256 NVMe, FHD in Silver

 

Ordered: 10/6, 11pm EST (Estimated delivery date given: 10/23)

Shipped: 10/16 from Hefei, China

Stop 1: 10/16, Shanghai, China

Stop 2: 10/17, Osaka, Japan

Stop 3: 10/18, Anchorage, Alaska

Stop 4: 10/19, Louisville, Kentucky (Cleared Customs)

Delivered: 10/22, 1pm EST

 

Very happy with the shipping time - I'm guessing my order was rather simple because I didn't need the LTE or the DV screen.
