Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2019 edition

My package is finally moving, after spending 3 days seemingly doing nothing in Shanghai. Quite frustrating these last few days. UPS still predicts Friday delivery, but I'm hopeful they'll bring it Thursday.

 

Edward_USA:

I just maxed it out, why not, company pays for it. I already have a Macbook Pro so the FHD display would be a setback, if I already have to use windows then might as well do it in style. NFC is the same thing, I dont need it, yet, but may be good to have and definitely worth £10, Google it.

All my macs are glossy screen, no issue with reflection, our office is not super bright and use my laptop a lot at home overnight. I guess it depends on your enviroment. I will post a "mini review" in the "ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th Gen X1C7 - first look" thread once I've got it, as others stated this is not the right place for that.

Congrats to the people who got their packet moving.

 

I received my TB3 workstation dock today but as expected I also got an E-Mail today saying the laptop is delayed to 07/08/19 and I have the feeling it won't stay there.

 

I'am a bit in a conflict right now, on the one hand it seems impossible to get an Thinkpad X1 Extreme with US keyboard (at least if Englisch (EU) means US intl.)  here in Germany by any other means and the price was quite good, on the other they are now approaching delivery times I don't find acceptable anymore.

The XPS 15 doesn't seem to be a bad laptop and has comparable specs and I doubt it will take >3 weeks to ship it, custom configuration or not...

Keep checking your order status because they don't even update me with an email and push up my shipping date.

 

Right now I have an expected shipping date of July 31st. If this gets pushed up I'm going to cancel my order. I already know they are going to push up the date. 

 

I bought my lenovo with the 10% coupon, but guess what, right now without a coupon I put in my cart the same spec lenovo and it was actually cheaper and you get a free accessory, this is using the 5% coupon they have.

 

I'll just do without a new laptop as I missed the summer when I need it most right now.

Hi guys,

 

I'm getting lost a little.. I thought the 2019 X1 (Yoga) models would come with the option for "matte screens"? But when browsing around in the online store I don't actually see that option (yet?)

 

Is it correct that the matte screens are not presently available?

- If that is not correct, then which screen is the matte screen option?

- If that is correct; any idea how long it may take for matte screen options to be added..?

 

Many thanks in advance for any and all thoughts!

You can use the online chat to request a price match to the current promotion.  My configuration was $114 less today plus you get the free accessory.  They are going to refund the card and add the free (one penny) accessory.

Thanks I'm going to try this as my price seems lower by about the same when I price it out now. 

 

They are saying they can't match the penny accessory and only the machine price difference.

Did they still keep your 10% coupon? What accessory did you choose? 


I used the EXTRA5 code for 5% off which made it $114 less than the original price including the 10%.  The only accessories left to choose from were earbuds or the USB-C Laptop Power Bank which is what I got.

Hi All:

 

i am interested in buying the Thunderbolt 3 Gen 2 Dock.  Again, this is the Thunderbolt 3 Gen 2 Dock, not a very similar sounding Thunderbolt 3 Dock (without the Gen 2 designation).

 

conveniently for Lenovo, they don't have this dock listed now (it was available for the last several weeks!) so i am unable to put it in my cart to order and qualify for the 1-cent accessory offer.

 

may i ask how this would work if they don't have the dock currently in stock?   would i miss out on the 1-cent accessory offer?

 

thank you in advance.

It's not really ANY accessory.  If you go through the configuration, the last page shows the only three choices that you have:

 

Smart Clock (sold out)

Jaybird Tarah headphones

USB-C Laptop Power Bank

 

Pick one of those two for a penny.

This is a shipping thread guys, you've got a better chance of getting a reply by asking in either a new thread or a more appropriate one.
