    I have the X13 (same trackpad as T14s) and I tried the replace with the X1 glass trackpad but it didn't work (the colour is also a little different). Investigated a little and I noticed the original trackpad has a blue PCB (Elan?) whereas the X1 trackpad is Synaptics. I think if you manage to find an Elan version of the X1 trackpad, it should work.

    Not a T14 review but very detailed on Ryzen 5 pro 4650 performance.

    Finally got my T14 with R5. 15-20 degrees cooler than my T14s with R7 which I returned. Very happy so far. AOU panel, which is fine for me. If you think the T14 is "fat" - it's not. Not even compared to the T14s. It's... "substantial". Really lovely coating. Perfect keyboard, trackpad actually is smooth despite what some reviewers have pointed out.

    Very happy. R5 performance WAY enough for me. Roughly 15-20% less than R7 but with much better temps.

    Will soon do a repaste and see if I can further reduce temps.
    Finally. This T14 will stay with me.

    One minor complaint. My T14 came with a smartcard reader. I don't need that one. Now with that open hole prone to dust and dirt and also a structural weakness to the chassis when putting too much pressure on the topcase I'd want to have the plastic dummy they build into the ThinkPads when ordering without Smart Card Reader. Any idea where to get that part? I looked through AliExpress and eBay already but to no avail. Part number would be interesting to have, or anyone got a spare one? :D

    Edit:
    Ok... I got the parts number!

    DummySmartCardReader 02HK918

    But now where to get it, I can't order it from Lenovo's parts page.

    Edit2:
    Found a solution: https://flexcommunityesales.force.com/
    Get your parts there, for those that are interested. Quick shipping for Europe.

    that’s a bit odd, did you buy a preconfigured t14 or custom?
    My T14 custom didn’t have one as per my review but the P1 I just reviewed did.

    My t440p still takes care of my mobile needs but dang I'd love one these. Could play some phantasy star online 2 easily enough especially if you guys are playing league of legends.

    Must... Resist... Temptation! Lol

    Would make running Linux easier, I still can't get the track pad to work in Linux at the moment since I installed the t450 track pad.

    Oh Hello! We keep running into each other, just came from your vid! :)

    Yes it was a preconfig because everything else was on 5-6 weeks delivery at the time I ordered!

    It's a bit of a pain exchanging that thing myself, but oh my! :) So far loving my T14!

    Haha I get every where :)

    glad to hear you are enjoying it, it is such an amazing laptop.
    Seems you can’t buy any at all on the U.K. store at the moment, wonder if they just can’t keep up with demand
