Re: Why there is still no review on X1 Extreme?

Thank you for your post.
Hmm, yes I know I'm kind of picky with screens ... but I find it still very glossy (compared to other thinkpad I own(ed), like t470, 1gen x1 carbon etc).

I found this video of an x1 extreme (actually in german) but it is with the 4k display where you can see how glossy it is:

Re: Why there is still no review on X1 Extreme?

Just purchased an X1E to upgrade from my trusty T570, should be noticeable upgrade Smiley Happy

 

Wanting to drop in a 2Tb NVME in spare slot when I get machine.

 

Q: will a 2Tb drive be compatible (lenovo support indicate 1tb max when speaking with the but they believe higher capacities should work)?

 

Any particular NVME drives known to work well with Thinkpads? Was thinking soemthing like a Samsung 970 Evo.

It's easy.... just remove the screws of the back cover.... actually the original plan is that ssd to my MBP using the conversion card....

Re: Why there is still no review on X1 Extreme?

Hmmm while the review from notebookcheck.net mentioned that the ethernet dongle (that connects to Lenovo's proprietary ethernet port) is included, it doesn't seems like it is included if purchased from Lenovo US based on Lisa's review on Mobile Tech Review channel. I guess it is safe to assume that only non-US version includes ethernet dongle in the package for free? I was hoping the ethernet dougle would be a standard accessory instead of an optional addon...

Re: Why there is still no review on X1 Extreme?

Hey, so I'm waiting for my x1e and have a 970 evo waiting to be installed. Couple of questions:
The yellow sticker on the 2nd slot - do I have to remove it prior to installing the new drive?
Need to disable the fast boot in win 10 and unplug the battery or just turn off and slot in?
Should I stick a thermal pad on the evo in your opinion/experience?
Also, slightly off topic, but do you know what 16 gig ram modules are compatible? Cheers!

Re: Why there is still no review on X1 Extreme?

To install a 2nd NVME drive, is there a spare mini screw on the motherboard as the drive itself doesn't come with one?
