    Still no update to my order, which states an estimated ship date of the 16th (3 days ago.)

    FYI - the OLED panel is now an option when customizing!

    Yup, just saw this option too: 15.6" UHD (3840 x 2160) 400 nits, OLED, AR/AS, multi-touch with Dolby Vision™ HDR 400 with IR & 720p HD Camera

    How would you guys compare the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 to the new XPS 15 7590?

    Aw thanks for sharing! Just added stuff today as I finally had time to run some benchmarks. XPS 15 is faster as the X1E seems to throttle at 80C for some reason (hitting this ticks the "prochot 96C" flag visible in ThrottleStop), but at the same time, that likely means the ThinkPad is going to have more longevity, if my experience serves me right. They are also much more repairable due to availability of parts and modularity. You're looking at 8-10% more performance with a well-tuned XPS 15 7590 vs the X1E G2 same specs

    What do you love about it

    @custom90gt

    I was looking at a video about the ports on this laptop and I am happy that it has an SD Card reader slot. But I saw that it doesn't have a conventional LAN Port and it looks like a USB-Type C kinda port which has the network logo on it, does the laptop come with a converter to plugin in standard RJ45 network cables?

    A converter is available when ordering. It's a breakout dongle, the first gen one from Lenovo. It is often OOS when ordered separately.

    One more thing I'd add about the XPS 15: Dell's laptops play a bit better with docks, just in general. I've noticed this with the XPS 15 and my eGPUs vs my X1 carbon and X1 extremes in the past. I think it's because Dell had the AW graphics amp for years and they've got a bit more experience with such functionality in the BIOS. Lenovo does not.

    Interesting about having 27 pages of comments for the first gen and just 3 for the second one.

    Lol I guess we all bought laptops last year and aren’t really springing for the slight upgrade...at least that’s me. Very happy with my P52.
