Still pricey though. I wonder how well this has sold. I know of exactly one customer that purchased one (also has a Samsung Fold 3). I know he doesn’t use it as his primary system, regardless.
Probably goes without saying, but I’ve never seen one of these in the wild, and I spend a fair amount of time on airplanes.
A while back, they were discounted all the way to $1399. I was very tempted and spent several weeks reading reviews. There were enough reports of poor performance and mediocre battery life to keep me from pulling the trigger. Also, it’s chucky. And I didn’t want to juggle yet another type of pen.
$1399 should be “sale price” IMHO
That being said, we heard near launch that even at $2499 Lenovo was at break even on the device. Of course volume and time tend to reduce costs.
OTOH, Lenovo seems to have purchased the entire production of the panel used in the X1 as it shows as unavailable from the OEM
You know what they say: $20M in the warehouse is better than $10M in the bank! Wait…
So besides having literally one customer that has one, I finally saw the X1 Fold “in the wild” so to speak. It’s in the new movie “ambulance” and the EMT and doctors make use of it in several scenes.
I’ll leave it to you as to if Ambulance is a good movie. My family found it fun and entertaining, though certainly more than a bit silly.
