    Can't go wrong with either of them actually. Pick which one your heart likes best!

    Btw have you considered T480 or T480s? If you want future upgrades like adding more RAM then T480 would be a good choice by looking at your budget. You can also add one slot of RAM in T480s (the other slot is soldered onto the motherboard). With X1 Carbon you won't be able to upgrade your RAM and also it's more expensive than the two (but the lightest).

    Yes, the T480/580 is a good choice as well, but as per some members advice not to go with those model coz of the CPU throttling issues.

    That is indeed unfortunate. However, Notebookcheck mentions that a BIOS update to version 1.1 will get rid of the throttling issue in T480: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-T480-i7-8550U-MX150-FHD-Laptop-Review.293682.0.html.

    @Mobius 1 Will a BIOS update solve the throttling issue in T480/T480s as claimed in the Notebookcheck review?

    There's actually conflicting reports that newer bios actually cause more power limit throttling rather than fix it.
