This is refurb with reduced specs be very careful

  1. here inauzwa for 274,999
  2. here it is again going for 300,000
  3. here is lenovo’s site selling the same laptop for 3289$
  4. here it goes for 300k

-So how are they able to sell a product worthh 300k at a fifth the price.

  1. Product is counterfeit
  2. It’s stolen
  3. It’s an old x1 carbon model(inbox the seller for the model) that has been upgraded.
  4. Second hand from europe.

Kama you don’t mind the risk it’s a good deal other options are for the same price:

Thats a refurb. its not necessarily a bad machine. I’ve had a Thinkpad T490 refurb for almost a year now and it looked brand new when i got it and still looks brand new today. Wear and tear varies on refurbs so you’ll have to inspect the machine closely.

One thing to know about the X1 carbon is that the RAM is soldered and there is no second slot for additional RAM so if 16gb is enough for whatever you need it for then thats not a big issue but if the ram were to ever fail the machine becomes useless.

Thats one of the problems with these modern laptops with soldered ram and storage. My T490 has soldered ram as well but it’s got a secondary slot so theres no issue. i got mine for 35k with an i5 8265u cpu, Intel uhd 620 gpu 16gb\512gb before the USD went to shit. This X1 Carbon comes with an i710510u cpu which is only 10% better than my i5 and has the same intergrated gpu as well but the X1 Carbon is a bit lighter and has slightly better build quality.

There’s basically no difference between 10th gen and 8th gen U series cpu’s from intel.


Hii takataka inafaa kucost less than 30k chief
