"...the tablet landed face down from waist height, spurred us to confirm that yes, it uses Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 to protect it. In all, though, we have no concerns with the ThinkPad X1 Tablet’s build quality."
"3K" display (3,000 x 2,000 option), faster CPU, more RAM, larger SSD option.
Two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 (power delivery, DisplayPort, data transfer) ports.
What more can you ask?
Current Thinkpads: X1C4 | X1C3 | X250 | X230 | T410
Retired Thinkpads: T42 | 560 (circa 1996)

The 3rd gen ThinkPad Tablet Carbon X1 hits a lot of the notes I was looking for in a new ThinkPad. Everything really, except the keyboard. And the lack of ports, And the underpowered CPU - though it looks like that i7-8650U may actually meet my needs and not be much different in practice than my current W520 quad-core.
Well, okay, not everything I was looking for. But it offers some innovations as well as a "good enough" in the other areas.
If I'm gonna put up with a crappy keyboard layout, I needed another strong reason to convince me not just to stay with a W520 or something similar. The new X1 Tablet detachable keyboard form factor combined with its 3000x2000 touch and pen-enabled screen may well be that reason. And the fact that you can at least take some of it apart with regular screws.
Crossing my fingers. This is the first new ThinkPad I've ordered in about 20 years. I've always found that I could get a used machine that was just a couple years old that would meet my needs at a quarter or less of the price of a new machine. I guess we'll see.
