Re: ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th Gen X1C7 - first look

If you mean is it flat or bumpy to the touch, it's flat i.e. if you closed your eyes you could not tell the difference between a carbon weave lid and a regular lid. Hope this answers your question!

Yes, that's exactly what I wanted to know! Thanks!

 

Is there any difference in how it andles fingerprints and smudges to the "original"?

Fingerprint and smudge-wise I would say that the carbon weave lid is about the same as the black, with perhaps a teeny edge to the weave because the pattern hides minor smudges a bit better. But I stand by my earlier comment that whatever you do it's going to get mussed up over time and need cleaning, or not, depending how you roll.

How are the temperatures compared to X1C6?

I have not measured, but in daily use for a couple of weeks, the temperatures of the X1C7 and X1C6 are not noticably different.

Re: ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th Gen X1C7 - first look

There's something wrong with this story. First of all, why only partial photos of the laptop? Why not move the camera back and show complete photos? Also, the speaker grill is not correct. The thinkpad x1 carbon 7th generation has a speaker grill that goes all the way across the top of the top case, not just a small speaker grill as seen in the provided photos.

Hi aahil, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

Oops yes, I forgot to explain the first point. Since the X1C7 was introduced and shown in January at CES 2019 in Las Vegas, and there are copious photos of the complete machine, I have zoomed in on some details which may be of interest.

 

As to your second point, "the speaker grill is not correct", can you substantiate that claim please? Links to sources with photos would be best.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th Gen X1C7 - first look

Hi again aahil, I did some poking around and I see that some of the early samples shown in January DO have full width grilles. For example in this video. Well since my early production X1C7 does not have a full-width grille, I guess we can conclude that they changed it!

Re: ThinkPad X1 Carbon 7th Gen X1C7 - first look

Would you be able to ask Lenovo whether they could include 32GB RAM version, at least in the future? That's planned for X390 (summer release), it would be a shame if X1C7 will not have it :/.
