Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9

First timer - go easy on me. I’ll check back in and let you know if/what’s broken when I figure out how to. Running great, compared to earlier experience on similar model/diff cpu as I’ll explain below.

X1C G9
1185 Intel CPU
512 GB SSD
Intel AX200 WiFi
4.1 Beta installed via Rufus - DD


Installed 4.1 Beta on the new machine after running 4.1 latest alpha on Thinkpad T14 Ryzen 7 4750 the week prior. X1 boot up and shutdown process loads faster, maybe 1/10 of the time. Loads snappier on the GUI, vm-startup/shutdown noticeably quicker/sharper, and didn’t have to mess around with EFI boot or PCI settings on the X1.

Only thing I’ve noticed is slight tearing/graphical artifacts on crypt setup login that a previous member on the same rig mentioned last month. Thanks for your review, it led me to this one.

My experience with the Intel X1 has been remarkably better than the T14 AMD thus far.
