Isn't it obvious that until they start making 7-row keyboards again, they will keep on being garbage? :lol:

Wow, many thanks for everyone's heads up!

We were just about to pull the trigger for a X1E2 (X1 Extreme Gen 2), decided to make a last minute check on this great ThinkPads.com forum...

Looks like X1E2 still need time to iron out issues... will give it some time and revisit this procurement later on ;)

Thanks again!

PS: I suggest reading comments too. The 4K oled seems to be really weird.

Unfortunately, the x1e is still one of the best you can get if you value scalability, trackpoint, socketed components etc. I am just in the purchasing process. (tedious Lenovo experience...). If my purchase in the US fails, I go for 2nd hand P1.
