This is one of the cheapest price for the fully loaded version of this Laptop and if you consider the Rasuten Cash Back Points, then it is pretty great.

However, if you mean heavy Photo and Video editing, compiling huge codes etc. by productivity, this may not be the laptop for you and you should look for a more powerful one, not an Ultrabook.

Pulled the trigger on this yesterday, and already shipped! Factor in the Rak super points $120 and 30 bucks that I had sitting in my account, and I got this beast for basically $850. Slickdeal for sure.

How do you use the Rak super points? Is this basically the cashback which comes in the form of a cheque? or these are points that one has to apply for the next order?

Looks like this is FHD and not 4K. I guess that will provide better battery life but will the display quality difference really be that noticeable?
I mean, my laptop is zenbook (ux32vd) from 2012 so pretty much anything will be an upgrade. Haha. But just trying to make more informed decision.

It is still not problem free but came a long way. You can actually stream netflix in HDR on this Laptop with Edge or using the NetFlix App.

I believe the 4K display also has 500nits brightness instead of 400nits, so it might actually be brighter in direct sunlight.

S = slim? But not as slim as c940? I still can't find any info if this 25w cpu + iris plus will be good enough of simple 4k video editing. Trimming, merging. I like having 2 in 1 but at the same time dont want to pay $1300+tax

Do you think Thinkpad X1 with similar config is powerful enough for those tasks?

Thinkpad X1 is not a moderl name. If you're referring to Thinkpad X1 Extreme Gen 1 or Gen 2 then yes. Thinkpad X1 Carbon is an ultrabook with less Graphics power than Iris Plus G7
