new x1 carbon has a smaller battery + better sound (subwoofer added???) + up to 4k display. 6th gen looks like a better buy if you don't need the sound upgrade.

This is currently the price on the consumer side +6% EBates. How does this compare to usual Lenovo sales?

EDIT: Forgot to mention this is fully loaded 16GB 1TB SSD Dolby Vision Screen.
The past sales were 30 to 35% off. The best deal was 35% off with 12% ebates but it was only one day.

I'm watching this thread for when someone sees the 35% + 12% ebates for a Carbon X1!

35% is from epp and 12% is cash back and some people were lucky to have them both. There were many discussions in this post about how to get 12% when using epp website.

The regular site had 35% off, I believe the EPP site was 40% off.

Just repasted my X1E, and it's now cool as a cucumber and quiet as a log.
I don't think undervolting will make much difference, but I will try.

Edit: Just ran the Intel XTU tool, and it's still throttling. Maybe I put too much paste?

Looking to buy an X1 Extreme, right now it has ebates 3% + THINKJANSALE(30% off), should I pull the trigger or wait for the next 40%, not sure when the next 40% would be

Both yes.
I will check tomorrow and try to repaste again accordingly.

But if it's stays hot, then what can I do. Haha.

Any idea if new display will be just as good in terms of contrast and sRGB? It's one of the big selling points for me and more important than 4k. Also, anybody of any idea which cpu is best bang for buck? I'm forced to upgrade from the 8250u to get the 16gb of ram.
