    Excellent choice. I will be doing the same thing with my X1.

    Installed Arch exactly once - 5 years ago on my X201s (posting this from it now), and have never looked back.

    All setup! ArchLinux is working beautifully.

    Chrome looks like crap on the WQHD display, some of the F* keys aren't working, and the 3 click buttons aren't working either. I could probably get the 3 buttons working with some simple Xorg changes...

    Oh boy, I returned my newly ordered x1 and then reordered to a new coupon SAV10THINKPAD !!! *ends today*

    I'll end up getting mine later but I am so glad they fixed the keyboard, the 2014 version was such a pain.

    Anyone know why the max resolution on HDMI to external monitor (Dell 2713HM) is only 1920x1080 and not 2560x1440 (using extended display with X1 display set to 2560x1440)???

    How did you return the X1 without being charged a restocking fee? If you look at the boards here, most people get dinged a 15% restocking fee so not sure how'd you be saving money when the coupon is only good for 10%

    As long as I do not open box and send directly back I was promised no restocking fee. Not sure if that was a special case but I saved my chat with lenovo customer service!

    Here is what I see as hard drive options...

    128GB Solid State Drive, Serial ATA
    180 GB Solid State Drive Opal 2.0 - Capable[add $100.00]
    256 GB Solid State Drive Opal 2.0 - Capable[add $150.00]
    240 GB Solid State Drive Opal 2.0 - Capable[add $200.00]
    512 GB Solid State Drive PCIe[add $700.00]

    Why would 240 GB be $50 more than 256GB?
