Re: X1 Carbon gen 6 black- paint comes off very easily

My 2 month old x1 carbon 6 gen has started showing scuffs although is is being handled with a very light touch. I suspect the docking station. This is totaly unacceptable for a high end device. Is lenovo listening here?

 

Regards

Re: X1 Carbon gen 6 black- paint comes off very easily

Black color paints are peeled off after i received in July. The positions are similar as someone shows by photos. I claimed this to the customer support but they only recorded it. Hopefully this peeling off will be made larger. I painted the parts with black color oily marker so that it will not show glossy black.

Re: X1 Carbon gen 6 black- paint comes off very easily

Hi Guys,

 

I bought my X1 Carbon Gen 6, 3 weeks ago and it has already started to peel from the corners.

All I have done us get it in and out of my bag.

 

Really dissappointed with the quality of the product.

 

Previous Generation X1 Carbon laptops seems to have a better build quality.


Sad this is only a one month laptop and started to peel the skin off. Smiley Sad 

 

Any suggetions guys? Maybe return to Lenovo? Anyone had their laptops replaced?


Thank you in advance.

Luckly my X1G6 has been ok, but its really worries me to see these issues.

 

I have had my laptop 4 months but it has not really left the house but over the next few months I will be travelling alot more. All my preivous thinkpads (and I have had alot) have never had this issue.

 

If the finish is really that poor I will be selling it and changing brands, you don't expect this on a flagship device.

I'm not sure, but you can find many other references from people who are writing about this ...

Personally, I've been pretty busy these days, but every week I see changes in the painting of my Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th Gen. I think on Monday I'll try to contact technical support, but I doubt I can do anything here in Mexico.
