    This is the tough one. With the sale price on the X1T in the 1500 range vs X1Y at almost 2200, that's a bigger decision. At a the price equivelancy I think the X1Y wins every time unless there is a specific need for detachability or 3:2. But at the sale price on the X1T it tips the scale a bit.

    Can't comment on light bleed (don't have it) but I believe PSRef said 400 nits.

    Or a Yoga convertbile. And with a proper 12.5" display, not the underwhelming 13.3" they use in L380Y & X380Y. One can dream...

    Here is an update on my unit. Today in the morning before I left home, I saw that there is a restart pending due to update (already running 1803). Then I clicked update and restart. Soon I noticed that the X1T stuck at "restarting" with the circle progress animation stopped, and top 3/4 of screen normal but bottom 1/4 black. I left it there with lid (keyboard cover) closed hoping it can recover itself somehow.
    After a whole day work I came home. I looked at it and the top 3/4 is flickering with darkened edge. Forced shutdown then restarted, and found the top 3/4 of screen heavily flickering. Bottom 1/4 normal.
    Wanted to see if it is caused by hardware faulty or software, so I restarted into BIOS. Top 3/4 still flickering, so it is almost certain a hardware failure.
    Seems I have to contact Lenovo for warranty service. Just out of return window, but I highly doubt if they have any "refurb" unit yet. Still pretty terrible experience there. I am not sure whether to blame Windows 10 or Lenovo for this, though.

    This sounds interesting. I've got my unit several days ago and everything works well. Have you updated all the firmware and drivers?

    Yeah of course. And it is hardware issue since the flicker did not go away in system BIOS...
    Recorded a slow-mo video to demonstrate. Very easy to see.
