Price is for i5 8gb 256...


Id rather have a x270 personally. These aren't that durable. And won't fit on a plane easily.

Nice deal though

Could you clarify? I had one for my last job and it was a workhorse for what I did and it was probably the most portable and best laptop I used. Do you mean using it on a plane or packing it?

Using on a plane. Also the build quality on the carbon is bad lots of plastic cracking. Warranty disputes etc. Get the accidental protection if you insist.... X270 is where it's at

They don't make the x270 anymore. Is there another this gen is replacing it? Website says no longer available.

I tried the Carbon in the store and its better built that any Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, and Sony I've owned. Surface felt great too but no LTE unless you want 2 generations behind for the same price.

Question for anyone that has both x1 & mbp.

Currently mbp may in need of a repair which may cost $500. Should I switch to X1? I don't really game on laptop and basic browsing but still want a solid laptop that will last for years. Most non-mbp's just seem so cheaply made so seeking a better option.

x1 yoga is just a swivel touch screen on x1? also looking at lenovos business laptops but seems quite heavy...

Get the x1 Carbon for $1188 with 16gb of RAM. The new Intel Core processors with 4c/8t (quad core) is a huge quality of life improvement for anyone.

With an eGPU TB3 enclosure, you can easily go up to a Geforce 1060 / Radeon 580 without much a bottleneck from the CPU and have a really formidable 1080p gaming machine.

And don't bother with Lenovo's horribly overpriced SSD upgrades. You can get a 1tb SSD m2 for about $250 if you really need the extra space.

I'm not sure what generation you had, but I'm writing this from my X1. 5 years old, still just as good as the day I bought it (slightly slower from age, but much less so than most systems). It's been to a couple dozen countries in that time, so it definitely travels well. I still get compliments on it - nobody ever guesses it's that old. And I normally replace laptops after ~3 years.

I will give you that the screen is a bit large to use at the perfect angle on the tray table of a basic economy seat, though. Then again, I try my best not to work on planes, so I think that's been a minor annoyance a total of twice.

I'm only speaking from the perspective of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 4th and 5th generation there's not much difference really between the 5th and 6th but the 4th is definitely got build quality issues as well as the 5th if you look on lenovo.com

Well that sucks. Mine is 3rd Gen. I was planning on replacing it with another newer one, but now maybe not. Thanks for the info.

No it isn't. Sounds like you're pulling crap out of your ass. We use these for work and they hold up very well. Now, as with anything, if you treat it like crap, it'll look that way.

The Thinkpad series are Lenovo business laptops. They last a long time and are very durable. Build quality is excellent and they're easy to fix (so shouldn't be expensive should something go wrong). Get an extended warranty if you're worried about that. The X1 Yoga is basically just a carbon, but because of the screen (and pen) it is heavier. If you're not going to use that feature then stick with the Carbon.

X1 carbon is not for durability!!! It's for slim portability. It's misleading milspec Yada Yada. Reddit.com/r/thinkpad agrees
