Their online store do back to back ordering and keep minimum stocks.
Standard configurations ones can shipped fast. Customized ones takes very long.

Up for you.

I am absolutely impressed with X1 carbon thinkpads. Light, powerful, good screen, long battery life, multiple ports and superb thinkpad keyboard.

Coming from a long time macbook air user.

Compared to MacBook screens, how do thinkpads fare? Also, anyone tried out the new gen X1 carbon in person before? What's the initial impression?

X1 Carbon 6th gen is very expensive in the market.
Hope to get another one from somewhere else.

HDR premium display should be awesome for daily views

I cannot say for the newer MacBooks. I can only say for MBA screen... it is definitely lower spec compared to thinkpad screen. Lower resolution, glossy with reflection makes it not a good choice to use in bright light condition.

Thinkpad screens are mostly matt and using IPS panels for non touch screens...

I sold my mBA and got myself a Thinkpad 13. Amazing laptop.

Light + decent battery life

Superb keyboard-- one of the best in the laptop keyboard. Hands down

Amazing number of ports available... 3 usb 3 ports, 1 USB-C, SD card slot, thinkpad connector (to connect to desktop mode), HDMI port. I got a USB-C to 3-USB3 ports + Ethernet port for just $10 from taobao... making my laptop having 6 USB 3 ports

Durable... so durable that it replaces my work laptop.. i brought it around to work, in the lab, for meeting, for studying/reading, for holidays, etc...

The trackpad may not be as good as MBA, but it is definitely able to replace the mouse...

L380 v T480
Specs wise T480 is higher than L380.
It's depend on your configured.

Maybe can option for T480s
Slightly lighter just the price is an expensive.

For all Thinkpad keyboard are nicer than others brand.
