    So after 50days my x1 tablet screen looks like a 3 year old has played with it for years.....
    I can't explain it but anything that contacts the screen appears to mark it. Even the keyboard outline has smudged on the screen.
    I am hoping I got a defective screen, sent it back and have been waiting longer for a replacement vs time with the tablet.

    I love the tablet though, they keyboard the thunderbolt solts, processor kicks butt. I have owned every surface model and they all felt like tablets (dual core i5) but this new gen 8 quad core is awesome.

    Has anyone else had screen problems?

    No tilt. Only with the Pen Pro which hasn't been released yet. I sent my X1 back due to the pen and poor front camera. I also found the keyboard to be worse than the 1st or 2nd Gen X1 Tablet. I went back to my I7 Surface Pro, LTE Surface Pro and Surface Go. Just find it to be a more consistent ecosystem for my needs. And they all connect to my Surface dock when I need a monitor.

    Interesting to hear it comes with the pro pen. My presumption is tilt will only work with the new 2018 Thinkpads (tablet and x1 yoga) when it comes out. I’ll be curious to see how well it’s implemented.

    So basically the Pen Pro thing is a false advertisement here. Shame on them...

    In Canada the pro pen comes with all 3 models when ordering online. YouTube reviews have not been kind, bit written reviews have been very good. Even editors choice. I really want a 13 inch or bigger tablet. Must be 3:2 screen. So far it's x1, switch 7, or the HP elite x2. Any other?

    Have many people been having this problem? I saw a similar post on a Lenovo forum, with a few people mentioning this, even with their replacements.

    Yeah good call. I had never even heard of this issue because the X1 Tablet threads don’t show up in the ThinkPad X Series forum section. Pretty bad that this was reported 11 months ago, and that there apparently still is no permanent fix on Lenovo’s side. Anyway, hopefully with a sceen protector this is still going to be the dream machine that it seems to be on paper.

    Sooo... now that the X1 Yoga 4th gen has been announced, does anyone know whether a 4th gen X1 tablet is forthcoming? Maybe @ibmthink has the latest scoop?

    And @cbutters, how do you like the 3rd gen in daily use? Battery life good, performance good?
