    As the title says......

    What do you think about it? Would you buy it again? Pro's / con's to YOU etc.

    On the fence on picking one of these up. Hideously expensive for what they are but if you want that form factor there is little else out there other then the "Other One".

    Thanks for any comments

    There are threads on Reddit if you search there, mixed bag, mostly about battery life and heat, fans running on the i7 models. Wish they'd let us buy i5s with 16GB RAM.

    I'm chasing them now. Have an X1C Extreme with 32GB RAM for office, but looking at the X1T3 for travel. Will hopefully snag one within the next week and if I do so I'll post up my impressions here in this thread. Would make my eleventh ThinkPad in the past seventeen years, change/upgrade machines fairly frequently in pursuit of the Grail.

    I bowed out. The screen coating problem is still on-going per @Starlight5's post immediately above following that thread.

    Have a 2018 refurb HP Spectre x360 13T I bought last August, pulled it out, cloned the 256GB Toshiba to a 480GB Adata XPG Gammix S11 (smoking fast) and that will be my road, travel machine. The XPG has an excellent review on Tom's Hardware and I got a 15% discount from Amazon as soon as I added it to my wish list, scored the 480GB M.2 for $84.
