The battery life is crazy on these arm Windows laptops. I still use my Samsung Galaxy Book S when traveling and I easily get a full days worth of battery life with heavy use. The only con with these is that you might have to find workarounds for software that doesn't work on Arm yet.

Seems pretty expensive for a snapdragon laptop. I know the 5g is the main benefit but performance wise its gonna lag behind

I think the sweet price point would be around $800. It's not going to happen for a year though

I didn't know this was a thing. When I saw the Qualcomm Snapdragon in the spec I assumed it was one of those old hybrid designs once talked about that can fast-boot into Chrome OS or Android for web browsing but still uses an x86 processor for Windows.

Just as a general question as I've only gotten Dells in the past few years. Dell has a BIOS option (and also in Windows too) an option to limit the battery charge to a certain percentage (e.g. 80%). Does Lenovo have that as well?

Might have to check on my sister's Lenovo, pretty sure its Vantage software would have that option.

I know that Acer has it, like Dell.

There's a model without the 5G eSIM. That's for $970.27 but I believe the whole purpose of snapdragon chip and this laptop is the 5G eSIM support.

Modern thinkpads do have this option, as well a the Legions.
On my p15, you can choose exactly what percent to limit it to. I have it set to 45% as it is permanently plugged in. I use Commercial Vantage (which is a less bloated version of Vantage)

I just got this model. Some thoughts if it helps folks:
* The 5g modem (particularly paired with the $10 tmobile unlimited business internet) with a long battery life makes this a great travel laptop. It supports dual sim so I have tmobile as esim and att (mobley) as sim.
* To get the good battery life, you want to stick to arm64 native apps (office 365, MS edge / firefox / chromium rather than google chrome).
* For videos, the inbuilt win 11 media player, plays MKV just fine.
* There is an app for Disney+ and amazon prime video. Rest including netflix you need to use the browser. The key issue with the browser (even MS edge) is that it uses widewine cdm for which there isn't a native arm64 in windows 11, so it uses emulation for x86/x64 (meaning battery life could take a hit). It does work though.
* If your use case is specialized, you need specific software that you use, it will may need to emulate = lower battery life, worse performance. If you can stay in the confines of basic web browsing, watching videos, and MS office, it works pretty good.
* There are some odd growing pains. For instance, speedtest.net has an arm app, but it gets stuck. The web version does work. I also have a Macbook air M2. I'd say the M2 provides a more robust and is more stable that this lenovo. I'm tempted to keep both, esp the $10 tmo plan works great on this little laptop.
* BTW, the current models are only sub 6, not mm wave (at least not when I look at the modem)
* The current models for sale only have 300 nits brightness. It's somewhat usable outside (think sitting in the shade). The macbook m2 with 500 nits works much better. Lenovo has a 400 nits brightness in pspref, but is not currently being sold. Was planning to planning to wait for 400 nits but got tempted Smilie

It's good for Microsoft office and stuff like most modern PCs. I never tried Photoshop or any editing software like that on mine. But I do remember Adobe having a Photoshop version that works on natively on Arm for Windows, I'm not sure about their other software so ymmv there. I look at these type of laptops as the Windows version of a Chromebook. So I personally wouldn't want to spend this much on an Arm laptop( I got my Samsung for $450 refurbed). But if this Thinkpad gets Linux support soon then the value definitely goes up imo to where'd I think about it for under $800.

And to the guy answering for me 😂.
