if u buy thinkpad, its comes with international warranty, as far as i know
You actually pay for it anyway. So if you don't actually travel with PC, why worry? Chances is for a short trip, you are unlike to wait for repair to complete before you return.
For USA set, depot service only.

Ya , I agreed with you.
Alternative with X390 and X395, due to newly design with 13.3” display.. that is superB.

X1 is far too expensive. T490s is a better buy.
Anyway, PC do need to buy too expensive and technology change almost every year.

So just got my E490 a few days ago, overall love it but sadly gonna have Lenovo send hopefully a 1 to 1 replacement due to GPU issues, the AMD RX 550X keeps crashing even when I did a full re-installation of Windows and drivers, concluded its a faulty GPU on the mobo... kinda sucks..

How much did it cost you?

Cos I just saw on Lenovo.sg website selling new X series for 1.2kSGD with AMD Ryzen 3 processor.

This is a good price, imho.

That's right need to customize some of the stuff.
IPS FHD 300 nit,
Ryzen 5 processor
512Gb SDD.

Will be comparing this X395 with the T series equivalent.

And see if it is worth it. Considering getting it for its keyboard and other qualities... for under 1.5kSGD.

Would u recommend otherwise?

The X395 build quality and the keyboard key-travel feeling same as X1 Carbon, very lightweight, battery life can last more than 10 hours, by the reviewer.
This is great machine, if you can selected as below your preferred.
Very good specs and these price, can try to look at T495s for your info.

You will feel fast as AMD notebook has a very good GPU but not the main processor. Google to find out comparison between the 2.
