Re: ThinkPad X1 Carbon (5th GEN) i5 7200U vs i7 7500U which to buy?

I recently placed an order for a X1C 5th gen. Got the upgraded display and i7 processor , but only picked 8gb RAm. Let's see how that plays out for my style of work.

Re: T420 build quality / warranty issues

maybe its just a bad piece .. i did see couple of T60's that had the right speaker issue .. calling up warranty, fixed it .. though their first question was " was there water spillage on the equipment " .. unless dats the case, its time to whip out the warranty leash!!!

an dont forget that the guys at the xda developers are working in porting the ubuntu onto the transformer tablet ... guessing that they use the same architecture in the thinkpad tablet as well, it shouldnt be that hard to port the same onto this beauty!!!
