I would have jumped on this if I didn't have a y540.

Amazing specs/price and it has thunderbolt 3.

Should I get this OP posted laptop or the Y740 deal that's been posted a couple of times?

I do video editing in 4K and I think both will need an external GPU.

I travel for work, so they both equally suck.

I do very much like the 17" of the Y740.

I watch Netflix a lot on the laptop when I travel.

I heard there were a lot of fan noise and coil whine issues that weren't fix with the gen 2. Can anyone confirm?

Does this have the new 4 speaker system?

I am in a similar boat. tempted on this, but scared about the reviews / screen / etc. I don't need 4k. all my videos are editted at 1080 for youtube. Quick edits, nothing fancy. I feel like maybe better to get less resolution and more RAM? I am really clueless but my 840g5 elitebook is probably not the best for what I do. I use Filmora, but a 20min video can take >1 hour sometimes. And extremely laggy during the video building process.

I assume I need more RAM, more CPU, and a dedicated graphics... Which the original post would give me... but I'd be pissed to drop 2000 bucks and have a funny screen (I also dont have a need or desire for touchscreen)... so maybe its not a good fit. I dont know.

Great deal, even better than the Perskopolis deal in December.

You may be able to find something with the same cpu and better gpu for less, but the screen probably won't be as nice, and it certainly won't be as durable

Plus, the 3 year warranty should help cover your bases as well. Note that thinkpad warranty is different from your typical lenovo warranty - you get a north american rep, they send you a shipping box etc.
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

Don't buy this. I just returned my X1 Gen 2 due to extremely short battery life (1080p screen with less than 3 hr) and crazy heat and fan noise (fan would spin on idle and CPU temp 70+ on idle). Also the customer service is extremely bad. Cost me 2 months from buying to fully receive my refund (ordered Dec 22 2019, received 19 Jan 2020, returned 31 Jan 2020, refunded 22 Feb 2020).

Because this is an X1 Thinkpad - much better build quality and form factor.
This i7 9750h / 4K touchscreen / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD / 3 year warranty configuration just checks all the right boxes.
