Re: X Series Laptops Shipping discussion (2012)

This lack of upgradeable parts is why I canceled my order before it shipped. Rumor in another thread has it that a more configurable i7 will be released in October. At least 8G of memory and larger SSD options. I decided not to wait and bought an ASUS UX32VD. I'll be putting an 8G SODIMM in the socket that comes with 2G giving me 10G total with the 2G soldered. I've also ordered a 512G SSD to replace the 500G spinning drive.

 

With the lead time between the original annoucement and availability, I'm very disappointed in the limited offering from Lenovo.

Re: X Series Laptops Shipping discussion (2012)

X1 carbon ordered on 8/15 status changed From:. "Released to manufacturing".   To:  In production

Last night

 

New ship date = 8/26

 

Cant wait!

 

The 8gb and i5 should be more than what I need for grad school.  Most of all, 2.98 lbs...

Re: X Series Laptops Shipping discussion (2012)

They ship on Sunday?
Ordered an X230 on 8/23/12, says it will ship 8/28/12, currently "Released to Manufacturing."
Was contemplating the X1C, but lack of upgrade ability made me change my mind.

Re: X Series Laptops Shipping discussion (2012)

I'm not sure what to make of the shipping situation with my X1 Carbon... 

 

When I ordered Lenovo listed an 8/26 shipping date. I later got a call from a Lenovo rep confirming my billing and shipping addresses along with my status as a student. The call came on Thursday and the rep said my computer would arrive by Tuesday (great news!). 

 

Well, the next day I checked my order status and it now lists a shipping date of SEPTEMBER 23! To top it all off, my order has been released to manufacturing and my credit card has been charged, so cancelling and buying a computer that might arrive in a reasonable amount of time, say before grad school classes start in a week, may not even be an option. 

 

ugh.

Yep - ordered an X1 (3443CTO) i7 4GB/128SSD on 8/20 with an ETA of 8/29; moved to 9/20 without notice. Will most likely cancel and get something else...
