Re: X1 Carbon 2015 - Where is the 256 GB PCIe option?

So who here actually bought the 2015 model? I was ready to buy by will now be holding out for either the crApple or the Asus Zenbook. Which should be ready for a new release anytime soon.

 

Wonder how the sales will turn out.  They'll sill lose out on a wide marketshare for not including the SD Card.


I mean just because the iphone doesn't have an SD card, doesn't mean a laptop shouldn't. Both Air and Pros include SD card readers. Heck the Zenbook has a full HDMi port AND a SD card reader.  Not sure what Lenovo was smoking!

 

edit: I see what took up the space. They moved the finger print reader to the side?  Where as before, it was on the palm-rest area.

The world is changing and SD cards are nowhere near as important in the mobile device market as they once were, as always-on connectivity is becoming pervasive and everyone has access to some cloud or other (and often several  different clouds).
Personally I don't see that the lack of an internal SD card reader is going to be a break-point for the target market for the X1C!

Razer Blade laptops made the same mistake of not including the SD card reader. Can you count how many people own a Razer Blade Laptop despite looking like a Mac Pro and having a powerful Graphic Card? 

It even has a full HDMI port. 

Yet sales figures for the laptop is beyond pathetic.

The 2015 version will probably add a SD card reader.  And the SD Card aren't going anywhere. Almost all of the Lenovo latpop includes an SD Card reader. 

 

The best selling laptop which Lenovo ripped-off also still has a SD card reader.

What was the sales figures for the X1C for 2013 compred to 2014?

 

We're talking sales here. Not returns due to people hating the new keyboard.

Good luck--one guy mad about the SD reader is going to keep ranting about it.

 

I called Lenovo to ask about the availability of the 256 GB PCIe option. They weren't really that helpful--the rep I was dealing with didn't really know the difference. I did note that one of the review units out there had the Samsung SM951 installed. I half wonder if one ordered the 256GB option if it would actually ship with this drive? That's a bit of a leap of faith, but I'll be curious to see once some of these get delivered. While obviously they want the reviewers to have the faster drive, I also think it will depend on availablity of what they have on-hand. Supposedly, Samsung is now shipping the SM951 out to OEM's.

 

Unfortunate that the motherboard only supports 2.0 vs. 3.0--but it's still a pretty big jump up in performance.
