    So my status has changed to shipped. No tracking number just yet. Hopefully tomorrow morning that will be the case. Hoping I don’t have to wait till Monday to get it. But with thanksgiving and Black Friday I wouldn’t be surprised. o_O

    Cut off the end of a slim aw 240w brick and soldered / added the Lenovo tip. Works fantastic and way slimmer to put in my backpack every day.

    Has anyone have issue upgrading the Radeon driver straight from amd.com? When I update the driver the internal screen was like tearing and the laptop become unusable ;I have to use external monitor to reinstall the system. Reinstalling the driver from Lenovo doesn't help.

    That’s better. I’ll likely want a second charger if I keep mine. Might try contacting Lenovo reps to see if they can make a special order if this doesn’t come back into stock.

    I’ll have to take a look once mine comes in. Looking like Monday is my expected delivery date. I haven’t heard of this kind of thing before. But it sounds like it’s doing something to your video output for the cpu? The hdmi and usb-c on the back are connected to the GPU so that’s why that’s working.

    Thanks! Canceled and ordered that. I wish I had known about that option - I already ordered one off a sketchy guy on eBay in China for $159.99. At least this way I will have two and I can compare if it is legit from the eBay seller. I have had good luck in the past.

    I bought the 230W to have up by the living room for charging pre and post browsing type activity. I definitely want the full 300W for any gaming!

    You can use USB-C charging for light-duty tasks as well as topping off the battery.
