I'll be honest, I love Lenovo laptops (A few X1's in house here) but there is really nothing that compares (IMO) to the new refreshed XPS from Dell.

I've only ever had one Lenovo, was a decent machine. But if you ever need it, Lenovo has awesome customer service.

The Xps are nice looking units

if you want a good Lenovo, buy a ThinkPad...they have depot's that you can walk into for support. if you get an IdeaPad, though, definitely buy the NBD onsite warranty cause return to depot SUX!

That's why I love my Dells and AW's. Onsite warranty is standard on the ones I buy. And they are damn quick to respond.

Actually my company just sent me a ThinkPad T480 with dock and two monitors ...

I was thinking of getting the IdeaPad since it has Thunderbolt 3 ports so I could have the option to plugin thru the dock and use the monitors but not sure now. Might just save the money ...
