Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2019 edition

2019-08-20, 13:49 PM

Just joined the communicty due to a wifi concern I have on my X1C 7th Gen I just got... saw this thread and thought I would supply my order / ship / arrival times:

 

i5 - 8265u

16gb

4K UHD

256gb

 

Ordered Aug 4th

Shipped Aug 9th FROM Hefei, CN

Arrived Aug 15th DELIVERED: Michigan, USA

 

So shipping time was excellent, but I'm already having the issue where the WiFi speeds drop after sleeping the laptop. The screen is extremely nice, but it would be nice to have better battery life... since I mostly just use it as a couch surfer with a charger sitting there, I opted for the nice screen. The scaling has been better in Windows than it has been in other times I've tried it.

Mine still shows a shipping date of October 21......ordered August 5 with a shipping date at the order time of August 12. What a scam.

You have to go to UPS to see the correct and up to date shipping details. Lenovo's website was wrong with mine after the 1st day.

How long after you ordered did the shipping date start to move out?

During the order process, it always showed an estimated shipping date of Aug 12.

After I had placed the order, that date immediately changed to Aug 26.

The next morning, it had suddenly changed to October 24 and that date has not changed since Aug 6 .....

That sucks.  Mine was ordered the same day, also showed same dates of Aug 12 and Aug 26 but it never showed October. Wonder what the difference would be (lets hope it's not because you got a different size SSD than me).  I'm supposed to get my computer today.

@shaners et al:

 

shouldn't we distinguish between preconfigured models/orders versus customized orders?

 

i am thinking that the preconfigured models might ship out much more quickly than the customized orders.

 

i ordered on Aug 1st a customized order for:  UHD, 16gb, 1TB, WWAN Fibocom 850, and during the order process, it was 4-5 weeks.  Immediately when the Order Visibility page was populated (roughly 24 hours later), the delivery date was October 16th.

 

Bait and switch tactic.  Awful business practice.  What a shame.
