    The coupon code posted didn't work for me on the new X1 Carbon, would have pulled the trigger if it did. I'll wait a little longer until there is a decent coupon available.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I was going hoping to use the coupon tonight but now I'm also probably just going to wait for some extra "motivation" to make me want to go for it. Hope someone posts a coupon code as soon as they discover one available (that still works).

    Just fyi - the middle trackpoint button isn't working for me either.. as a scrolling button in chrome using W7.

    When I try to change the mouse settings it says it can't connect to the device.. sigh.

    2 finger/3finger scrolling also doesn't work...even after downloading the specific driver on lenovo's site and restarting...

    I might have to throw w10 on here tomorrow as I can't deal with w8/8.1

    I just (5 secs ago) ordered a new X1 with the coupon and got 10% off. US store.

    I was trying earlier from the Barnes And Noble site, I just tried from the regular site and it worked.

    Just added a X1 to my Thinkpad stable that did include a T60 and a T530.

    Will try to await its arrival patiently.

    1/21/2015 - Update on battery life

    Charged it fully last night, took it to the office at 3pm and have been using it for 4.5 hours so far. Brightness at 90%, max CPU at 50%, wifi on and in heavy use all day because it was syncing my Dropbox account, I have 19% battery life left with an estimated 1hr 16 mins. Picasa has been indexing photos which is relatively CPU intensive as well. Looks like 5+ hours is easily achievable, 6+ seems very possible.

    Spec is i7, 512, 2560x no touchscreen

    Still loving this machine, no complaints. Screen is great, great viewing angles as expected from an IPS screen. I missed you so much Trackpoint!!

    Also, really pleasantly surprised by the total lack of bloatware. Essential Lenovo stuff pre-installed, Norton (which was easy to uninstall), Office, that's about it.

    Because the 240GB SSD is an Intel SSD.
