Full spec if anyone is interested: http://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/Th...20GG001VUS

RAM is soldered (no sockets); SSD is standard m.2 (upgradeable); WLAN is definitely not m.2 (the psref pdf has a typo); but WWAN is m.2 (can the WWAN M.2 slot be used for an m.2 2242 SSD of any kind?)

UG and HMM are shared between Gen 1 and Gen 2, this tablet on sale is a Gen 1 model.

Interesting stuff; this is a processor from 2015-Q3:

https://ark.intel.com/products/88...-2-80-GHz-

https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu....40+1.10GHz

Anyone knows whether the RAM is upgradable, or is it soldered to the board? Basically, it's a tablet — is anything within it upgradeable? SSD? 4GB and 128GB seems a bit on the lower end, although $400 for a brand new X1 tablet is still not a bad deal, TBH.

Looks like the RAM is soldered, probably doesn't have any empty slots, either; announced 2016-08; basically, two years and a quarter ago?

https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/T...20GG001VUS

Looking more into the PDF specs. RAM is definitely non-upgradeable. It may appear that this thing has a total of 3x of M.2 ports, one of which is used by the SSD, one WiFi and one WLAN. Does it mean it's upgradeable for extra WLAN or an extra SSD?

It looks like BH has these used for a higher price, LOL.

I've had this for about five months, I got mine as a lenovo refurb, the prior owner (likely a corporate lease customer) had the 3 year extended plan on the unit so despite it 's age I still actually have about 18 months of warranty left (the extended warranty follows the unit so its fully transferable).

I have the 8gb model with LTE and finger print sensor but my experience will be similar to what you will get with this unit....

The battery life was trash when it was new and now its just worse ;-) Light browsing your likely to get 4 hours. This tablet traded battery life for weight and thinness. *BUT* you can either buy the lenovo extension battery (I wouldn't too expernsive) or simply get a USB-C Battery Pack that supports USB-C Power Delivery (PD) of at least 15 watts. I have a 10,000 mah pack and when I'm going to be needing longer life I just bring it along and it easily triples my battery life to 10+ hours and that pack was less then $40.

It charges and has full USB-C video out at 4k 60, no thunderbolt. It's a surface pro like screen aspect ratio wise so you get bars on 16x9 but you can also realistically use it in both orientations without looking goofy and having a wide screen that is only good for media but terrible for anything else.

Speakers suck, this is a productivity tablet not a media consumption tablet.

The kickstand is inverted from what you are probably used to in a surface pro. This makes the machine *FAR* more lappable than a surface pro style kickstand. The OEM keyboard has very strong magnets, is back lit, and feels great. If you decide to pass on this one but like what you see the LTE model supports most carriers and comes unlocked (I run mine on tmobile no issue).

Steer clear if you are looking for a netflix, hulu, youtube and similar media type consumption tablets. There are far better buys. This is a great machine for someone who wants an ultra light alternative. I have this, a 14" Yoga Pro, and a few other iPad and similar devices because I prefer to have the specific device for a given purpose. This little guy is great for bring into meetings because I can pop on the keyboard and hammer out detailed notes and in 5 seconds flip it over grab the pen and start jotting down drawings or diagrams and all while having 100% compatability with windows apps. Our office tried a few times to incorporate iOS tablets into our work flow and they just weren't flexible enough or the staff got tired of having to carry TWO devices, we ended up picking up a few of these off lease X1's and honestly the biggest fault with them is easily corrected (shit battery life).

Looks great for travel. Though I don't understand how they decided on such a high resolution with such a weak RAM combo

Tempting. I've been wanting a Surface Pro for some time. This worth considering for a far less price?

There is an 8GB model on Amazon that has like 14 reviews. But it and the Newegg reviews both make mention about random shutdown and BSOD. I think there is something faulty in the battery/power supply. That's reason to pass on it, and surprising to hear from Thinkpad line.

Paying for the good looks & lenovo's x1 brand/product line.

Specs are a bit outdated, but should definitely still be serviceable.

I would think the right price for this is $250-300 as it really competes with tablets, not laptops. See Wiki for full specs.

Nice screen resolution. Probably great for light duty stuff and watching movies.

Daily. Just don't use Windows and it is fine.
