Good price for one of the best laptops available today. Great build quality, the best keyboard available on any laptop and great components (including WiFi 6) in a carbon frame with included 3 year warranty.

No 4K or OLED here however a great quality FHD Dolby vision HDR screen @ 500nits is perfect in a 15" laptop without the screen resolution issues and battery life a 4k or OLED screen brings.

Perfect for both business use and casual gaming with thermal performance rated better than the Dell XPS 15.

Capacity for a 2nd M.2 drive also to boost storage.

This has a trackpoint and a decent keyboard. If they don't matter to you, get the XPS 15.
I’m really torn between this and the Razer Blade which is a shade below £2000 at the Microsoft Store.

There seems to be pro and cons between the two. This is cheaper but the Razer has a better graphics card. The Razer looks nice (IMO) but the Lenovo is a workhorse.

I want it for content creation (I have two left thumbs when it comes to gaming), any real-world opinions would be welcome!

I have both a Razer 15 and X1 Extreme. Razer is a great machine and well built however the X1 Thinkpad is just easier to work with on a daily basis. Keyboard and trackpad are just better. If you are spending a few hours a day on a laptop, get the Razer. If you are spending all day on it, the Thinkpad is the better choice.

I went with the Lenovo. The XPS 15 is a great machine but has some underlying thermal issues and also a poor WiFi card. XPS has a better battery and screen (if you go for OLED) however Thinkpad wins in every other category.

Brilliant, thanks for the quick reply. Really appreciated!

I was watching a US review of this and I noted the following 1) The battery life is not that good. 2) They seem to have bigger discounts in the US (up to 40%). Otherwise this seems the perfect 15" laptop.

Massive discounts in the US. Generally, electronics cost far less in the US.
It's just not on!

I agree on battery life however it’s ok with the FHD screen. You can get 7+hrs which is sufficient for most people. US is cheaper for most things although the same laptop is a few hundred cheaper, it only comes with a 1 year warranty so once you consider this, it’s very closely a similar price.

Think the razer is £1600ish at Costco. Mate bought one the other day but not sure of specs
No numpad
