Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon 2nd Gen Refurbished - £279 @ Tier1Online

17
Posted 5th Dec 2019

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

"2nd Generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon with a 4th Generation i7 processor, 8GB RAM and a 240GB solid state drive." (And, mercifully, a 1600x900 screen. NOT a rubbish 768p panel!)

Not expecting much heat on this, price is middling I suppose, but T1O list it as clearance so here it is anyway.

No promo codes.

On this model the mechanical function key row has been replaced with a touch bar, no function key, some keys in different position and delete key takes up part of backspace key... Worst X1 edition, avoid!

completely missed that

Wow, Lenovo made some BONKERS bad decisions during the Haswell era.

I don't blame all you cold voters
Apple didn't learn from Lenovo's mistake
1600x900 might be tolerable but since it's a Thinkpad I'll venture to guess it's the worst possible screen they could find. Why business people are provided with mush that'll eventually blind them is beyond me. Grannies who pay a fraction for a machine to send one weekly email get a better experience.

What are these things then ?39272752-fzFdh.jpg
Far too much money for a Haswell machine these days, horrible touch-sensitive F-key row, display is sensitive to pressure marks and poor customer support from Tier 1 Online - who are more interested in charging over the odds than selling you a decent machine.
I bought a used gen 1 X1 Carbon with otherwise identical specs for £170 around a year ago, so this seems exorbitant.

Ok for balance I hit minus on my own deal. :P

Looks like a generic photo of a different model. If you look at the other photos you'll see the "touchbar" function row.
Surely £280 is a high premium for a 6 year old laptop. I feel money will be best spent on a x260 with a core i5 which come with Broadwell chips (6xxx) and can be found on ebay for as little as 150 from trusted shops/vendors.

That image is just to show an example of typical screen scuffing on laptops they sell.
The Gen2 ThinkPad has a touchbar not physical F keys.

It is. You mean Skylake anyway but yes, it's a good improvement. You can get a Yoga X260 for this kind of money which is newer, faster but still just as rugged and nearly as light.

This laptop was released in 2014 and at that time resolution of 1600x900 was better than nearly all consumer laptops (which generally were 1368x768).
anyone buy one of these from the seller? any feedback?
