So long! You did a custom config? I'm just taking a stock model. It said it'll ship in 2 business days ... but are they shipping it from their factory in China?

Oh man ... did you manage to change your model? Why would they allow you to buy a laptop without Wifi?

mine came in 2 wks(custom config).
i made a lot of noise over 1 week w lots of frustration then they added in a wifi adapter for free. i ended up selling the laptop after they installed e wifi adapter

now i resort to buying from Amazon US, then added in additional international warranty.

bought my X1 Carbon with 3 yrs warranty (i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, touchscreen) at $2600 instead of $3300

isn't the "international upgrade" is just for the optional coverage like the accidental damage, sealed battery replacement?

IWS, all Thinkpads T and X series by default have international coverage, excluding additional coverage such as ADP, Sealed Battery Replacement, and Keep your drive. You can check your model is covered in the destination country as some model may have different parts from the origin country. So there is no need to purchase International Coverage AFAIK.


This add-on is to include the international coverage for those additional coverage such as ADP, Sealed Battery Replacement, and Keep your drive. So only makes sense if you added those additional coverage.

embarked on a new mini project. bought a old T440P and fully overhauled the unit

1. Replaced the top cover,palm rest, lcd bezel and bottom cover
2. Upgrade the screen to a Innolux 1080p. Gorgeous colors
3. Changed keyboard to backlit
4. Change the trackpad to T450 model
5. Change the HSF to Delta model plus Kryonaut thermal paste
6. Ram maxed out at 16GB
7. Upgraded CPU to 4712MQ
8. Installed a 250GB SSD to WWAN slot
9. 2.5" SSD into main HDD slot
10. Added a third HDD into the optical caddy
11. Swapped out the battery for 9 cell and adapter to 90W
12. Upgraded wifi card to AX200

Changes were so extensive that the only components untouched were the mobo and the internal base frame.

Next project will be the x240
