Is the P1Gen2 and the X1EGen2 basically the same machine? It looks like one week, the P1 is $500 cheaper than the equivalent X1E, and the next week, the price difference is the other way around. Am I missing something?

Same machine, only difference is the gpu: Quadro vs GTX.

Any feedback on this Lenovo Desktop (through the EPP link) for $1098.00. There is also 9% on Rakuten but not sure if that applies because of the EPP link.
Thanks

Does Rakuten work on the EPP site if you use the Rakuten Chrome plugin? Or is there some other reliable way to get Rakuten on the EPP site?

Doesn't work in my experience.

This is a really nice.

If the 512gb is still a 970 Evo, that is easily $150 and the processor is a beast too. Don't expect to do any gaming on it though.

If anyone wants to buy an 8GB stick of Samsung DDR4 2666mhz ram taken from a P1 let me know. I bought my P1 with the minimum option so I could upgrade to 32GB later. Now I've got a brand new 8GB stick that could be useful for anyone wanting to upgrade from 8 to 16GB.

And on the topic of Lenovo P series.. 10/10. After using it the last while I strongly feel there's nothing else on the market I'd even consider if I had to replace mine.

I think I will use the gameon2020 discount or you think by the end of February it will be better.

I'm trying to place an order but it asks for a Lenovo Card Number when it's time to enter payment details...

edit: nevermind, the site doesn't like Chrome. I had proper payment options with IE.
