X1 Carbon (4th Gen) Customization Help

Hey Guys!


First time posting here. I'm trying to find the best configuration for my X1 Carbon. At first, I wanted:

  • Processor: Intel Core i7-6600U Processor (4MB Cache, up to 3.40GHz)
  • Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64
  • Display: 14.0 WQHD(2560 x 1440) IPS Non-Touch
  • Memory: 16GB LPDDR3 SDRAM 1866 MB
  • Hard Drive: 256 GB Solid State Drive PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.0 - Capable

This is basically the top of the line configuration. I was pretty confident about this but then I read a couple of user reviews that said that maybe the i76600u and the 16gb of ram is a little too much for the machine to handle, whic made their machines really slow. So now, I'm unsure if I should go for this configuration. The alternative for me is to go for the i76500u, with 8gb of ram instead. 


I need help with deciding what the best configuration is. What specs do your 4th gen carbons come with? Any help will be appreciated. I really want to get this right since my current laptop is trash and I don't want to regret my purchase.
