Time to check out the product page for the processor
That looks like the 2nd generation model. The Carbons are nice machines, but the 2nd generations had more reliability issues than the 1st generation. I don’t care for the touch bar for the function keys. Still, it’s good performance and a decent price for this configuration.
What is up with the home/end in place of caps? Why?
Yes, it is. You can tell because it has the chaotic-evil keyboard.
However, the 3rd generation X1, released last month, has restored the keyboard to a sane arrangement (though not as good as the keyboards on the T420 and earlier), and also restored actual physical buttons to the touchpad.
You can get this for less on the Lenovo website, plus there is a coupon code for an extra 10% off.
You can do so much better for this exact same price.
For $1100 you should get a higher resolution display and more ram.
NOT a good price!!
Actually if you look at their website and COMPARE specs you can see its $1849
Only thing i can’t see is a direct comparison is the display resolution.
Love a Thinkpad, but this isn’t that great of a deal… I just ordered a new Dell Laptop this week for $949 minus $75 off coupon… Came with 5th gen i7-5500U, 16gb RAM, AMD Radeon™ R7 M270 4GB DDR3, & 15.6 inch LED Backlit Touch Display with IPS and FHD resolution (1920 x 1080)
This isn’t even close to the same deal. Thinkpads would be equivalent to Latitudes. The Dell this links to has some nicer specs, but is running a regular hard drive instead of an SSD. The Dell is a nice machine, but that SSD makes a huge diff in performance.
Yep, I actually just bought two of these direct from Lenovo last week for $1080 each with free shipping (using a discount code). Except, the ones I bought had the WQHD (2560x1440) multi-touch screen. This isn’t a deal with Lenovo’s promo discount right now.
Horrible deal. Top of the line version costs 970 from Lenovo directly.
I agree it’s not a GREAT deal, but a maxed-out Gen3 X1-carbon is around $2000. A maxed-out Gen2 (as this is) is around $1100 direct from Lenovo.
No discrete graphics? No deal!
TLDR: Do not purchase one of these if you use function keys!
I owned one of these… briefly. I had to return the first one when it died (there were definitely quality issues from what I hear).
After I got to use it a while, I eventually had to return it anyway, because the keyboard is unusable for anyone who needs function keys. People also complain about the trackpad, but that I can get used to (note: I rarely use trackpoint), as well as the rearranged physical keys. The adaptive function keys are an abomination, and should never have gotten past product testing.
$1150 and it’s still not 1920x1080. This is pathetic. The Passmark is only 4187, keep in mind it’s only a 15w TDP processor, but still not all that impressive considering it’s $1150. The I5 in my kid’s laptops are I5-3317U and have a passmark 3095 at 17 watts TDP, they are slim factor, 1920x1080 touchscreen and cost less than 1/2 of what this costs (Acer V5-572P-6858).
