That’s about what that laptop is worth.

Should be closer to $1000 really.

Good deal but definitely not price error. If you were in the lookout for a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga anyways then it's worth a look.

Lenovo is known for jacking up the price. I actually bought it for $$1900 doorbuster deal. MSRP was high $4000 just a month ago.

they have Yogas with 11th gen 1165g7 around the same price last friday... also the 16gb is only 2133Mhz and soldered... not sure 4k screen is worth these drawbacks

I ordered the X1 Carbon, but now I'm not sure if this X1 Yoga wouldn't be a better choice.

Is the 4K screen really incredible, at the expense of battery life?
And do you need to apply a screen protector if you plan on using the pen?

Were they X1 Yogas? The X1 Series is really their flagship level.

It is legit per a comparison of the Canadian flyer and the US flyer. Deal will be alive tomorrow morning.

The 4K touchscreen reduces battery life from about 11 hours to about 7 hours. X1Y is also heavier than X1C.

Since it is a Yoga, screen protector should not be necessary.

Which one is better really depends on the user’s priorities.
