This review is from: ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook Intel Core i7 4600U (2.10GHz) 8GB Memory 256GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 4400 Shared memory 14" Windows 7 Professional Upgradable to Windows 8.1 Pro 64-Bit
Pros: The X1 is a great laptop
Cons: This is not what was advertised. The part number is 20A7002QUS. I have found belatedly that this number does denote a specific laptop. It is a laptop that has been downgraded from windows 8.1 Pro to windows 7 Pro. It also has a 1600 by 900 screen. As on August 7, 2014 this product is listed as Windows 8.1 Pro and WQHD (2560 by 1440). I bought this with next day delivery because I only had 48 hours to get it ready to give to someone who was leaving for a year.
I ended up spending hours converting it to windows 8.1 and paid extra for the high resolution that did not come with the computer. I cannot send it back since it is already gone.
Other Thoughts: The part number is 20A7002QUS and it is searchable to see the exact configuration. I will DEFINITELY search the part number in the future and not take what Newegg says the configuration is. Probably not buy a preconfigured laptop or computer from Newegg. (I could have gotten a refund but that would only have covered the purchase price and shipping and not the sweat equity involved. It also would not have been ready since the person with the laptop is gone for at least a year.)
