Between the T470 and T480, I read that the T480 has a quad core whereas T470 is dual core. On theory, T480 is a lot faster than T470. But under real life usage, I can't testify.

Btw where you see T470 for sale? Lenovo site?

Carousel. Hahaha that's why I placed emphasis on the warranty. I wouldn't dare get one without.

Thanks for your input, the unit is not actually mine I am asking on behalf of a customer as she brought it to me. I was quite puzzled when Lenovo deemed it as user induced damage thus I am asking around forums for inputs as Lenovo was not able to provide me the specifics of what could cause such a issue for the LCD as this is my first time seeing it. At least according to the customer she did not recall any mishandling of the laptop.

"That's what she said..."


She probably slams the laptop cover very hard. Eventually the display will fail...


The X1 carbon is touted as a premium class laptop but I bet my W520 already outran it. 7.5 years and counting. My W510 finally gave up after 9 years.

Anyone knows if the t480 will disappear from the Lenovo website once the 490 is out? Or will it sell along side for a bit

Hi clyp1973,
the X1 carbon you bought from the US.
Did you buy a 3 pin plug from SG to replace the plug from the laptop you bought from the US?

i didn't bother buying a 3 pin plug. Been using mine with an adaptor. Looks really ugly and sometimes not convenient to plug into sockets. Any idea where to get the 3 pin plug?

T490 is expected to be a minor model refresh. Nothing fantastic. I posted a link to the first look at the T490, can scroll up to see.

Sim Lim square sells those cables alright. Plenty to go around. Just open up and check you have got a 13A fuse.
