Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2018 edition

I just received an email that my laptop is not yet available and they expect it to be delivered on 17/04/18 (which is not that bad imo)

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2018 edition

My laptop got shipped today and is expected to arrive the 16th! The only problem is that there is a small typo in the address which previously took UPS a week to solve.

I'm guessing mine will only be delivered @ Digital River at the 17th (expected), so the wait will be a little longer.

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2018 edition

  • Hey all. I bought a X1Y3G w/ 500 nit hdr screen, i7 8650, 512gb ssd, 16gb ram on 4/11. Original shipping info said 5-7 business days and the estimated ship date after purchase said 4/20, delivery on 4/27. It just today changed to shipping 4/23 and delivering 4/30...! My current laptop is dead and I'm a grad student with 3+ projects due by 5/2, so I am pretty pissed already. I didn't know they were infamous for their delays, otherwise I might have settled for an x1 carbon at a retail joint. @%(&€%.

if you don't care much about the HDR screen, Costco is selling 16gb / 512gb for $1599 at their brick and mortar warehouse. not to mention 2+2 years warranty if you purchase with Costco Citi Visa.

 

btw, HDR screen is great but not perfect. slow than average response time. frequent flicking when running certain software. I have two units both of them behave the same way so I know its not a lemon

Thanks for the tip, psun, that's the great deal I was thinking about. I do want to try out the 500 nits, though, and the yoga. If the shipping situation significantly worsens, though, I might cancel.

 

The screen flaw is something I've not seen in any review yet - scary! By responsive, do you mean to touch or to actual processing? And which applications cause the flickering, if I might ask?

 Found a possible solution for 2nd gen model, but you probably already tried this? Here's the link to the forum:

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2018 edition

Same happened to me. Overnight, they pushed my delivery date back by 10 days. X1YG3 with 500 nits screen. Of course no email notification from Lenovo, which I guess would be a bit too much to ask in the 21st century....

Hi drjochen,

When did you order yours and where is it going? I'm in California and ordered on April 11th. And yes, no email for me either.
