Lenovo loves to make us think that we're getting a deal by raising up the price really high and putting it "on sale" for 40-75% off when it's really the original price. If you're lucky, you may get up to 25% off their "sale" prices.
Seriously. Decent price in the end but to try and claim this is a $3,219 laptop is hilarious.

The price driver is the portability and durability. There are often thermal challenges and power draw/battery life issues with thin, light laptops that the primary market for these (business and business travelers) don't benefit from and don't care about. Intel Iris graphics in this machine are comparable for most things/tasks to anything nVidia or AMD could fit in the same thermal envelope and cool properly. Graphics cards just aren't the primary driver for this market segment.

Seriously, I've purchased several (10+) of these for some of our business users. They never costed nearly that, even fully spec'd. Lenovo's claim this is a $3200 laptop would be better saved for April 1.

Complete crap compared to the asus g14. What good is the laptop when the internal parts cant even keep up with the ryzen 4800H? Also Lenovo forums are filled with nightmare support stories. I'd be careful buying anything Lenovo. Its like rolling the dice and praying they will give you warranty support.
It's so annoying people talking about specs. If I wanted a processor, memory, hdd, etc. Just laid out on a table, sure. But I want great components put together in a well built machine.


It's like buying the fanciest ingredients but having a crappy chef prepare your food. I'd take a great chef with good ingredients, even if they are not the best ingredients, anyday. And that's what ThinkPad offers

You are so right! All I care about is how every day usage is for me. Also I want a device that looks and feel good to use. I like what I like and if someone says why you spend so much on that when you can get this with better processor, ram, hd etc. Who the fook cares.

2133 Mhz Ram!?
for a non-4K screen that's originally +$3,200 ? 😐

At this price and year, type C for PD charging by default.

*Note: you gotta compromise between portability/size and GETTING YOUR MONEY'S WORTH. I choose/prefer the latter.

Exactly. It's like the whole "you coulda put together a gaming rig" crowd, as if I had time to waste doing so let alone actually playing games

Work IT for a hotel chain, and can say that Lenovo quality isn't what it used to be. I've had quite a few X1 Yoga Gen 1 crap out on the fan right after the 3 year warranty is up, and Lenovo won't come out to repair without a charge. Might have been a bad batch but still, in a business environment, problems like these are unacceptable.

Gen 2 Yogas are slightly better, but I had to warranty a few stuck keyboards already unfortunately.

That having said, I never really had any issues with their X series (X240 and up) and their T series (T420 to T480s). Ultimately got a few BSOD's with the X1 Carbon, but that's been narrowed down to drivers.

Par for the course when buying an Ultrabook.

Different people want different things in a laptop, and an Ultrabook with integrated graphics is totally fine for many use cases. Even preferable.

That said, the base model screen seems underwhelming. Ultrabooks are a premium segment and typically have high DPI, high quality touchscreens.

The entire selling point of the X1C is its mobility and travel durability. Currently and for the foreseeable future there are no on campus college classes, no coffee shops, no libraries, zero business travel. I just don't see any of that changing anytime soon. A desktop, mini PC, or cheap laptop I understand at this point in time for those that need computers for WFH.

In normal times it might be a good buy. Currently a total waste imo.
