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.

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.


Hi, I spoke with online chat and they had me send them a screen shot of the lower priced configuration  in my cart. I'm not sure if you had to do that.

 

He said he would then submit the price match to a department and they would get back to me.

 

I asked him about the penny accessory and he said that was not part of the price match and they could not offer that. How were you able to get the price match for the accessory?

Ordered a near top-spec Yoga Gen 4 (minus vpro CPU and 512GB ssd) on July 12th. Estimated arrival date of August 6th. Chat support said they can't price match or offer the $0.01 accessory after the order was placed.

Not really sure I'd order directly from Lenovo again. ~4 weeks to receive a laptop is a pretty long wait.

Hello,

I received an order update today via Mail: "We regret that your Order bla bla has been delayed. New delivery date is the 31/07/19". The last date I received was the 7/8/19, so they actually moved the estimated date forward.

 

Has anyone ever had this and did they honor the earlier date?

I can't make any sense of what you wrote here.

Ehm, ok, I'll try again:

 

- I ordered an X1 Extreme custom configuration via lenovo.com at the 18th of July.

- Delivery date was estimated to be the 2nd of August

- A few days later I have received an E-Mail stating that the delivery is delayed to the 7th of August

- Today I received a mail from DigialRiver that states that my order has been delayed to the 31st of July

 

So they said it is "further delayed" but the actual date moved forward. The question is if anyone ever had this and if so, if Lenovo honored that new date.

From what I can determine you are getting the expected to ship date and the expected to arrive date.

 

Right now my Expected to ship date is July 31, 2019.

 

My Expected to Arrive date is August 7th, 2019.

 

Seems like you are getting these two different dates given to you and they are not specific in which they are talking about. Seems your delivery estimate is exactly like mine.

 My X1 Carbon just arrived!

 

Ordered: July 9 (after cancelled July 8 order).

Expected to ship (initially): July 19

Expected to arrive (initially): July 30

 

Actually shipped: July 18

Actually arrived: July 25

 

Trackpad feels super nice. The speakers sound awesome and can go VERY loud. Screen (UHD) is beautiful.

Where did yours ship from? 

 

Can you actually tell a difference between the UHD screen and a 1080p screen on a notebook, assuming you used older notebooks.

@Edward_USA:   i posted on the regular X1C7 thread about this.

 

i spent a long time (~1 1/2 hours) at a BestBuy to look at 3 laptops for specifically this purpose:

 

comparing FHD, WQHD, and UHD.   the FHD and UHD were Lenovo Yogas, and the WQHD was a Microsoft Surface.

 

surprisingly, the FHD and WQHD were very similar!  VERY similar.

 

the UHD was head and shoulders superior.  it was like someone had scrubbed my eyeballs and it was crystal clear.  beautiful rendering of letters, text.  i will use mine mostly for reading, NOT for video, so how text looks is of paramount importance for me.

 

hope this helps.

I ordered x1y on 29/06 from Ireland, i have received 4 shipping est. todate. 16/07; 29/07; 22/07; and latest 30/07. I won't be holding my breath, I rang on 22/07 when i heard nothing and received the latest est. the next day. It doesnt' fill me with confidence in the service, and having read issues with QC and customer service after i ordered it really feels like an expensive gamble. If they don't send on next i'm cancelling for a xps 2 in 1
