Re: ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd Gen Mini Ethernet Connector

Hello and welcome,

 

Just going on what I read:

 

From the base spec:

 

http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/Think%20Tablets%20_%20Convertibles/ThinkPad%20X1%20Yoga%20(3...

 

"Native Intel Ethernet Connection WGI219-LM (vPro) via optional ThinkPad Ethernet Extension Cable"

 

https://ark.intel.com/products/82185/Intel-Ethernet-Connection-I219-LM

 

"Data Rate Per Port 1 Gbps"

 

From the sales site:

 

https://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-yoga/ThinkPad-X1-Yoga-3rd-Gen/p/22TP2TXX13Y?...)

 

"Ethernet Extension Connector (Dongle for Native Ethernet sold separately)"

 

And from Accessory Smart Find:

 

http://accsmartfind.lenovo.com/products/4X90F84315:

 

"...X1 Yoga 3rd Generation... 20LE, 20LF"

 

The Google turns up multiple sources for 4X90F84315 including Lenovo and Amazon.

 

As to advantages?  Depends on your use case.  As you said, doesn't burn a USB port.  Doesn't require a special driver - although that's probably not much of an issue for USB adpters.  Maybe with non-Windows OS-en.  Can do PXE boot if that's important.

 

As I said, I'm going on what I read in the above.  Please confirm before purchasing.

 

Z.
