    That’s a great thread, thanks!

    Where do you find battery life averaging for you? I’m recalling the X1 G2 being around the 5 1/2 to maybe 6 hour mark for the non OLED and the OLED being maybe 1/2 hour or so shorter.

    Contemplating the X1TG3 as well as the X1YG3 and it has a much smaller battery, so want to draw some correlations between the 2.

    I haven't been away from power enough to really push it to be honest. Sitting idle at full brightness (500 nits :cool:) it draws around 7W, and idle at minimum brightness it draws under 3W, so obviously different users will report very different numbers. Full brightness and light work would probably draw 10W or so, giving you 5-6h battery life. BatteryBar for me reports a predicted 5h runtime, sounds about right. But if you're willing to work at lower brightness you can work much longer.

    Any recommendations on a Dock? Just the standard Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 dock?

    @koz2050 it depends on what are you planning to connect, exactly.

    Well...I have a P50 now with the Ultra or whatever dock.

    I have plugged in the following...

    1920x1200 Monitor (Displayport) can be HDMA or DVI
    1920x1080 Monitor (Displayport) can be HMDA or DVI
    Speaker (3.5mm jack)
    Keyboard (USB)
    LAN
    Wacom Tablet (USB)
    and a misc other few USB devices.

    No intent of going 4k or whatever.

    @koz2050 TB3 dock would probably be a good fit in this scenario - some cheap USB-C dock won't do, and good USB-C docks cost close to TB3 while providing less functionality and being less future-proof. Consider Lenovo's TB3 dock with GTX1050, it's pricey but totally worth it if you perform gpu-heavy tasks or play games.

    My understanding is that the pen in this new model has tilt. Yes? Not sure how to test that though.... Would be nice to have as an artist, sketcher, etc.
