I ordered blindly because it says %60 off and 4k web price, maybe you were in a rush but I guess you will post the specs?

Looks like EPP site pricing:
https://www.lenovo.com/ca/en/ibmeppfrie ... 2WS2WPP102

Thoughts:
  • if its anything like my x1 extreme g2, it can get loud, and battery life won't be fantastic (6h, give or take - i get 4h with the oled panel)
  • has two memory slots, and two m.2 ssd slots (rare features nowadays, even with thinkpads)
  • the T1000 gpu has fewer cores than the T2000 and 1650, and may be a smidge slower
  • some people are reporting missing keystrokes (I havent experienced this)
  • some people are having an issue where the screen brightness is maxed on hybrid graphics (I have this issue, workaround is to set to dedicated graphics in bios)
  • the carbon fiber lid is nice, if these models come with it
  • this uses a 135w charger; chargers with a lower wattage can work, but will either be slower on a light load, or won't be able to keep up with a heavy load (I've tested with a 65w)
  • you can also charge using a pd usb c charger; again, it'll be slower and it might throw a warning (can be ignored)
  • this is a warm deal for a workstation, can do better if you're looking for a gaming laptop

Unrelated thought: I'm excited for the rumored T15G - a thinkpad with a freakin' rtx2080

I had 4 thinkpads until I moved to a Tong Fang gaming laptop (Walmart Overpowered) last year and have no regrets. If you don't need 3-4 lbs weight, I would take the weight hit for much more power and a lower price. Especially any Ryzen 4000 series laptop. It'll destroy the 9750H in productivity and longevity.

Thanks for the image include aeba7.

Personally I'm hoping for T14s AMD to get Thunderbolt. Maybe it will happen in 3 years ...
