X1 (2017) Release Dates?

Hey there!

 

I'm getting really impatient and Lenovo Germany couldn't answer me: When is the new Thinkpad X-Series being released? Some googleing made me think it's February 2017, but by now i doubt that, February is almost over.

 

I know this isn't a tech question by all means but I'm new to Lenovo and i would like to get some information about it.

 

Please, i'm in desperate need of a new Laptop and if the new Yoga X1 wouldn't releas in time i would just go and buy the old one.

 

Thank you in advance!

M

Oh, sorry for bothering but i got one additional question:

 

Does anyone know if new products immediately become part of the Lenovo Campus deals?

Press release from CES says February, so I think its coming soon. And they're usually discounted with student discount when they come on sale.

Thank you. I got that press release but i thought by now there should be more detailled information, like "it's coming on February 26th" or so.

 

But the Lenovo Campus info is gold - Thanks a lot. I'm hyped.

Why is this issue being marked as solved? I didn't do that.

 

There must be some more info out there regarding the release. Like experiences in the past or so.

Re: X1 (2017) Release Dates?

There may not be any more recent information.  When a new model is being introduced, it generally has new components that may well be in short supply initially.  The machine I reviewed was what I would call "pre-production, final hardware".  It was not a prototype or engineering sample that might be in an evolutionary process, but was the hardware that would be sold to customers as soon as all the needed parts were available and assembled in sufficient quantities.  There are many suppliers of parts on any new machine, and a computer manufacturer, like Lenovo, cannot control all their delivery schedules.  For example, a machine might use a screen from LG, and LG may give an expected availability date of January 1st.  That date may be based on whatever date LG was given by whoever makes the digitizers or the LCD matrix, and those dates would be based on promised dates from their suppliers.  At every point in the process, suppliers have small quantities (samples) before they have enough to fill all the orders.  Delays anywhere in the chain are passed along.  All I know for sure is that when I wrote the review, they had enough of that model to send me one.

How did you place an order? All it shows is "Notify Me When Available."

Re: X1 (2017) Release Dates?

Ok, so it seems it is available in the US but not in Canada and Europe yet.

 

What is bothering me is that the X1 Carbon has been released yesterday in Germany and you can order it but the X1 Yoga isn't. Can anyone figure out why? I would think they share a broad range of parts, so it can't be deliver problems.

 

Also: The 2017 X1 Carbon isn't  on Lenovo Campus. Anyone got any experiences with new releases at Lenovo Campus?
