I just plaed an online order for ThinkPad X1 Extreme and i have been closely following threads here for the past week to help me decide for the X1E.
I dont know if my question would make sense or not but there is no way to know what kind of FLASH is the SSD used in X1E before placing the order. I checked mine and it was a TLC SSD. I have read online and I came to know that MLC is far more reliable and has 2x better write speeds than a TLC SSD. Who decides what our machine gets when we place an order? No one from the sales team disclosed this before order placing. How do i ask them to change it to a MLC if i want to? Do i have to cancel and place a new order?

As far as I know, the NVMe SSD of notebook may not have MLC in FRU 2019. Besides, the speed and durability of TLC are good enough. 99.9% of SSDS are not damaged due to the use up of life and durability
