Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2019 edition

@x1techie:

 

may i ask why you feel that the UHD screens are NOT the hold up?

 

if you go to "customize" and try to customize an X1C7, you'll see that the ONLY component that you may choose that changes the delivery date from 4-5 days to 4-5 weeks is the UHD screen!

 


I ordered an X1 Yoga 4th Gen with the following specs:

 

i7

16GB RAM

1TB SSD

UHD screen

No WWAN

 

3 days to ship after I placed the order. I don't know if UHD screens are delaying the X1C but it didn't effect my X1 Yoga.

@raqball:

 

the two UHD screens between the X1C7 and your Yoga are different.

 

yours includes touch and the X1C7's UHD screen does not have touch.

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2019 edition

I know I'm only one example, and I've stated it previously, but my X1C7 came with UHD screen... ordered Aug 4th and shipped Aug 9th. I'm not sure you'll know precisely which component is causing the delay, it may be combinations of components.

@CarbonUser:

 

your X1C7 is a customized order, right?  it's not one of the pre-configured models?

 

i'm now waiting for the two Comet Lake processors (i7) to appear in the customization area of the Lenovo site to place my order.

 

i have no idea when they will appear!  the press release from Lenovo said September, but Lenovo is notorious for being inaccurate in their time estimates, as all of us on this thread know!  sigh.

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2019 edition

I ordered a customized X1EG2 on 8/18. Initial estimate for receiption during order/configuratioon was sometime within the first week or two weeks of September (I think maybe 9/6?)  But after order was finalized, the dates were quickly adjusted to estimates of 9/16 for shipping and 9/20 for delivery.

 

I understand problems with supply chain logistics that may be out of your control (such as Intel chip supply), but I was not happy that the estimates at time of purchasing/configuration are clearly known to not be accurate (dates immediatley change post order). But... I think I can continue to wait.

 

Here is my customized config...

 

Intel® Core™ i7-9750H 

Windows 10 Pro 64

32GB (16GB + 16GB) DDR4 2666MHz

512GB Solid State Drive, M.2 PCIe-NVMe, Opal

15.6" FHD (1920 x 1080) 500 nits

RJ45 Extension Connector

Estimated shipping and delivery dates have slightly improved to 9/12 and 9/18 respectively.

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2019 edition

Ordered an X1 Yoga 4th Gen - one of the stock ones and it shipped quick enough.

 

Got the package and it was some IdeaPad so totally wrong laptop.

 

Trying it again and I'll see what I get.

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2019 edition

@8bit_barbarian:  that's incredible that you would receive a completely different laptop!

 

how can that happen?

 

don't they scan products so it would be virtually impossible to put the wrong product into the wrong box with the incorrect address label?  unless during a switchover, either in staff turnover, shift change, or when some conveyor belt broke down and the restarting caused issues for a certain number of shipments!

 

very odd and disappointing.

Re: ThinkPad X series shipping thread - 2019 edition

The box label was for what was inside (not an X1 Yoga).  The box itself looks like it had been shipped around with several UPS labels stuck on top of each other, another RMA number on the box that had been crossed out, and barely closed hanging on by just a lenovo circular sticker.

 

I repacked it much better and shored up the edges of the box with some good shipping tape before sending the wrong one back this morning.

And we're back...
