Overpriced laptop with outdated CPU generation, not a big deal anyway.

Yep. Out of curiosity I asked (in the chat) if they plan to have it available again soon. The consultant had no idea.

This may actually be really gone this time, because it shows 'Sold out' and not just 'out of stock' or 'temporary unavailable'.

Still available in Hong Kong and Singapore. Singapore offers the best deal, because for the same price as on the US web site (actually cheaper, if you factor out the tax) you get the on-site warranty upgrade (as well as a case + laser mouse). But if you are in North America and can't get someone to bring the laptop for you, the international shipping will make it much more expensive.

Not overpriced at all if you compare it to the MacBook Pro and the MS SurfaceBooks out there

Hey, here's a clarification of ThinkPad's On-Site Warranty upgrade for our region here in Asia:

(We've phoned up ThinkPad to confirm this a while ago):
If you have upgraded to On-Site Warranty for your country, but you travel overseas, your broken ThinkPad is a "Depot Carry-In" type of International Warranty.
ie: When you are overseas and by chance your ThinkPad breaks, it is a multi-day carry into local repair centre type of repair!

Fortunately we have never experienced a ThinkPad breakdown while traveling overseas--which is why we bought ThinkPad in the first place!

Thank you for sharing this information!

It appears that when it comes to any non-standard services (beyond base depot warranty), such as 'on-site' or 'keep your drive' Lenovo now sells a separate "International Upgrade", which costs an extra $20. It is still cheaper than a full-fledged onsite warranty upgrade, and should make all coverage international. This was what the service rep on the Lenovo US website claimed.

However, the text of the upgrade itself mentions:
Extend your coverage to applicable optional services, including Sealed Battery Warranty, Keep Your Drive, and Accidental Damage Protection when traveling outside of your home country.
It does not mention "onsite". Still, it makes no sense to me that all these extras would be redeemable internationally, and the 'onsite' would not, but it does require additional clarification.

Any chance they'll throw out a T26 based on the T480 architecture?

Based on what their sales team told me in a webinar last week, no.
Question - Brandon
Will the keyboard from the 25th anniversary model make its way to any of the mainstream models in the future?
Answer - Adrienne Mueller
We do not have any plans to do that at this time. Unfortunately just a limited special edition offering.

The last batch is down to $1272.33.

I think this is a fair deal, so I bought two. I have a specific use case in mind for each one.


Nevermind. I sent them both back.

Lenovo only refunded me for one T25, kept the second one and now won't refund it even though it is in their possession.

Tracking number of the return, accepted RMA and all, and they just double down that I only sent one laptop back.

What a mess. I never want to deal with this company again.

File a claim against them with your credit card issuer?

Believe it or not, T25 is still being sold here in our region--both in retail stores and Lenovo website itself !
Guess the T25 is alive and well !

It was unavailable for some periods of time, and then became available again. But despite that, Lenovo still refuses to sell it globally. I guess their marketing is overrun by dumb-as-doorknob bang-head-against-wall types.

Too bad. While I'm not enamored of this model, the keyboard alone might - just might - be enough to tempt me if the price was right. But, as it is I'll have to wait and soldier on with my HP Envy as my daily driver.
