Anyone with hands-on experience with X1 Extreme Gen3 (X1E3)?

#1 Post by w0qj » Thu Oct 08, 2020 10:32 am

Just curious, anyone with hands-on experience with the newly launched X1 Extreme Gen3 (X1E3)?
Especially as compared to X1E1/X1E2/P1

We are considering to buy this model, so thought to ask this forum!

I've bought one, and now experience strange screen flickering from time to time:)
Except this, it's ok

nope.. have not yet seen the X1E3.. have two X1E1's with 4K touch display and love them..
only caveat is the battery runs down faster than the claim BUT i leave it at the 80% charge limit..
might look to get a "refurb" or used gen2 if the price is attractive.. but only one with 4K and touch.. i don't recall if the gen 2 had OLED but i would want that too..

We liked the X1 Extreme so much that we also procured the X1 Extreme Gen 3 (X1E3).
Will post our own hands-on comments after a through comparison vs X1 Extreme gen 1 (X1E1).

In the meantime, Notebookcheck.net just posted their own in depth review of the same,
as detailed in this separate thread:
