  1. There are comments about FHD version too and they are not old! I am really unsure what to do now. Do you recommend X1 from experience?
  2. Hi, sorry to bother you again but I, by chance, found multiple topics on Lenovo forum from people claiming they have battery life issues: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/PSA-Better-battery-life-for-X1-Extreme-P1/td-p/4279531/highlight/true/page/4 https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/ThinkPad-X1-Extreme-Battery-Issue/m-p/4308269#M94527 As battery is one of my main concerns, do you know if this issue has been fixed? (some coments are from 2019)
  3. I just found out that there is 1st and 2nd gen of X1 Extreme. How to tell them apart? This is the device I ordered https://www.x-kom.pl/p/515792-notebook-laptop-156-lenovo-thinkpad-x1-extreme-i5-16gb-512-win10p-gtx1050ti.html (sorry for polish language but the specs are there)
  4. Well, it's even more than 3 years (3x365=1095). Let's say I want to be using X1 for 5-6 years. RAM or SSD can be replaced, but is it possible that there would be no batteries available for my device in this time? For example, there is no new ribbon (tape? sorry, don't know how to call this part in english) I can replace my old one with (in ASUS). That;s a bummer
  5. Ok, thank you. After talking to some people I started to question my approach to buying a laptop. Looking at my ASUS - 3 year old machine, after 1425 battery cycles can only keep itself on for slightly above 4 hours with battery save option and during light work. Only 3 years and I already need to consider buying a new device (also because i3-6100 feels outdated). I bought ASUS for ~800 USD, Lenovo costs at least twice as much. I mean, X1 appears to be a fantastic device that has all the specs I would like. But should I go for it considering how fast its parts might wear off in 3? (It's again me being anxious about spending that much money) Could you give me your thoughts on this matter?
  6. There is no guarantee that there will be a battery for today's device available, right? Secondly, the main reason I consider expensive laptops is that I expect such devices to live many years. I do not want to replace a device every 3 years, but I accept the need to replace some parts after a few years. For example: I had my ASUS repaired recently for 30$ and that's ok - the first time I had to invest in this laptop, but I feel that the processor is outdated and my battery life is very low (discharges 100%-->10% in 4-5 hours with better battery option on, during light use; with games I expect less than 2 hours of battery life). I honestly don't know if my approach to buying a laptop is correct. Do you have any thoughts?
  7. Ok, we're reaching technology levels beyond my knowledge. You mean unscrew the laptop, remove the battery (charged to 60%, as I read) and just put in on a shelf? And use laptop, in essence, as a PC? What adapter should I buy? Is this one ok? https://www.x-kom.pl/p/416601-zasilacz-do-laptopa-lenovo-zasilacz-do-lenovo-thinkpad-90w.html (sorry for polish language, but the data is there) The third question is, if the battery degrades that fast (looking at my ASUS) does it even make sense to buy an expensive laptop? Wouldn't it make more sense to spend ~750$ every 3 years to buy a new one?
  8. Thanks a lot! Do you think, in a gaming scenario, I should still maintain 30-80 range or is it possible to keep it charged for some time?
  9. With the amount of money I am spending, I don't mind taking extensive care of the device. So I should decharge to 20-30%, then charge to 80 - that's actually very doable with my workflow. Now, do you have any sources to back this up?
  10. What about everday use? Should I wait for it to decharge and then charge it to 70-80%? Or should I keep it plugged in while using? I use my laptop for long periods of time and I am unsure what to do is such circumstances.
  11. Even when gaming? Also, the laptop will shut itself off when reachin <10% (that's what my ASUS does). What I've been doing with my current device was charging it when at 10% to about 90% and what you see on a screenshot is the end result. Ive seen some people recommending leaving it on charge. Not sure which practise is right.
  12. Thanks for your answers so far. My next concern is the screen. I've seen Matebook's and it is splendid - bright with amazing clear picture. I haven't seen any X1 so could you tell me about it? FHD with 1920x1280 does not promise much
  13. First of all let me show you stats from HWiNFO about my current ASUS Zenbook UX310UA I bought 2 years and 9 months ago. Should the drop in battery life be so big over 3 years? I am buying a new laptop (Lenovo X1 Extreme), so I would like to know what the best approach to charging is. Could you provide some guidance?
  14. I read Lenovo's review once again. Here's the part about battery life (although I would be buying FHD screen) Also, the review gives as cons: CPU performance on battery energy management at 100% load (link to the review) https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-X1-Extreme-i7-4K-HDR-GTX-1050-Ti-Max-Q-Laptop-Review.335608.0.html#toc-verdict Like I said, I didn't plan to game on that machine, but if I get Nvidia GPU I want to play games (Witcher, PUBg, etc). Now I am concerned about performance and battery life (the review says that Lenovo has better performance and worse battery life than its competitors)
  15. Yeah. I wrote similar post on other social platforms and some people actually recommended MacBooks saying that my description matches these devices. Their arguments were quite stupid imo, like: * even an idiot could use macbook * I should not compare MacOS and Windows machines in terms of specs, because MacOS requires less powerful components (when I said that Apple's products are unreasonably expensive) * macbooks are pretty * macbooks are more comfortable to use (whatever that means) * macbooks have reasonable backups (whatever that means) * and lastly, one of them said that I do not want Macbooks only because I do not want to change my habits (meaning using Windows) If people buy Macbooks basing their purchase on such arguments, then I have no words.
