Prices are getting crazy. Been checking on the X1C9 from the LenovoPro account from September.
There was a 26% ($1000-ish) price increase towards the end of the first week and still at that price till now.

Heard from CS rep that prices are subjected to changes daily, personally seen the Legion 7 prebuilts underwent 3 rounds of price increases(about $800 more) before it got removed altogether. Beside the usual laptop components prices hike, read that the shipping cost in china jumped tremendously.

Which models? Sharing my recent order details: Stingray L5P BTO(AMD) Order 19 sept, shipped 30 sept & arriving tomorrow. Laptop with RTX 3070 has way longer lead time of 12 weeks min. Someone i knew have a Legion 7 RTX 3070 ordered in june and just received last week.

What, you ordered BTO one & It only took 2 weeks to arrive :s14: ? Interesting, but the prebuilt ones are usually cheaper?

Prebuilts don't have Stingray amd only intel. perhaps the fast turnaround time maybe due to my bto is the basic and minimally spec'd as I planning to upgrade it with better ram kit & ssd.

thanks for sharing, Intel variant is so much more expensive, I get it because of TB4 & PCIe 4.0 SSD, but putting it inside normal Legion 5 make price bump to 2k with RTX 3050Ti only, so funny how Lenovo comes up with those SKUs

BTW, please share to us after few months of usage, wondering how long the beautiful white color could last :love:

Initially wanted to buy intel version but not worth it when Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake just around the corner.

I think Q1 2022 we also have Zen3+ Rembrandt for laptop too, this year mobile parts are too short-lived due to supply chain issue lol
