X1 Carbon i7 with 8GB RAM - Never?

2012-08-31, 15:57 PM

It's getting frustrating.  I just called sales, and I was told with certainty by the salesman that it will never be available.  He said that it was not designed to have both i7 and 8GB.  He didn't check with a supervisor or anyone else.  He said it right away as if he knew what he was talking about. 

This contradicts what I have read here on this forum a few times that it will be available in October.  I really need to upgrade my computer already, and I am willing to wait till October for the i7/8GB, however, there seems to be a question whether it will ever happen.

Has anyone heard any more news about this?

I was told the exact same thing.   I've ordered the i5 with 8gb and the 256 SSD.   For what I do . . I don't really think I'll notice the difference between and i5 and i7.   Plus, again for me, I prefer the the extra 4gb of memory over the i7 with 4gb.

I have been having the same frustrating experience. I ordered the i7 with 4GB of RAM the day it was available AFTER chatting with someone from Lenovo who assured me I could upgrade myself to 8GB once I got it, i.e. there was an upgrade slot. I have since spoken with several other reps, one who told me yes it could be upgraded, but two others telling me they had no idea. Also, they keep pushing my ship date back and back. Disappointing.

Welcome to the forum.

 

There is NO upgrade slot. You're stuck with the configuration that you've ordered.

 

Good luck.

This is a problem with today companies and they wonder why Apple sells the computers like hot cake.

Lenovo releases X1 Carbon, but competion has got better or powerful notebook.

X1 Carbon costs a lot, but not offer a lot.

I always had Xseries, but this time I will probably buy MacBook PRO 13-inch, because it has got the i7 and 8GB RAM and it is good machine in general for less money then X1 Carbon.

Lenovo - WAKE UP FROM YOUR DREAM!

I just spoke with sales again and they said the i7 with 8GB of RAM would be available mid to late October but he couldn't absolutely confirm this would be true. Lenovo has really dissappointed with this launch.

I spoke to a sales representative yesterday who said the expected date for the X1 Carbon i7 with 8 GB is mid-to-late October. She was emphatic that it is on its way.
