    That is tempting, what is the battery life on the 1st and 2nd gen?

    Guys, it took around 35 days for me to receive the new replacement of my X1T gen3. So far so good.
    One question though. Does the pen or Thinkpad active pen 2 support Tilt on this device? I am no artist and I actually will not use it anywhere, but my testing does not show this function in the Windows Ink Sketchpad.

    PS. I am lucky to receive an entirely new retail unit so I now have an extra of every accessory!

    Update: I'm overall pretty happy with this replacement (though brand new). Currently the system is running as smooth as my 5820K desktop in terms of daily browsing/productivity tasks, and the gaming performance is decent when used with 1440p external monitors (guessing 3000x2000 native is still a bit too stressful) for League of Legends.

    Does anyone has any answer to the tilt question above?

    My understanding is that the pen on the new 2018 X1 tablet and yoga has tilt. Only these two devices have it so far, based on what I read. Even the 730 doesn't have the new tech. So, yes, it should have tilt, for what its worth.

    I tried with two different Lenovo pens but none has tilt work for either Windows Ink Sketchpad or Photoshop Elements 2018...
    So that's why I am doubting if the tilt support even exists here.
