    Kind of surprised B and H, here in Manhattan just told me they weren't going to carry it. It's at Best Buy, but I'm always leary of buying from them.

    What's wrong with Best Buy? They have a great 14-day return policy, including open-box. If you're an elite member, you get 30 days. Any issues within that time frame, you can bring it to any Best Buy and exchange for a new one.

    I'd be more concerned with Lenovo warranty support.

    Also, this video was just posted, showing full support for an eGPU.

    Thanks for the link. Unfortunately, it turns out that the discovery that the port is 4 lane was actually an error. It is indeed only 2 lane as was reported in an update in the video's comment section. However, the good news is that the limited 2 lanes don't seem to be negatively impacting performance or compatibility with the eGPU that he tested with, so all hope is not yet lost. Lon said he'll do more testing and provide an update next week. Fingers crossed.
