    Dazzle yourself & others

     

    The new design of the X1 Carbon will surely dazzle. The dark black, soft-cover include colour-coded hinges. And the 14” display options are bigger and more stunning than ever. The built-in Full-HD IPS display guarantees a wide viewing angle, and richer color.

    Go from 0 to 80 in 60

     

    The X1 Carbon delivers** up to 15 hours of battery life. And if you’re running low, the RapidCharge technology provides 80% capacity in just an hour. So a 60-minute lunch break or a layover can easily boost your battery** up to 12 hours. What more could a road warrior ask for? And when you’re actually working at your desk, the new docking system fits seamlessly with side mechanical docking that snaps into place. The easy alignment also delivers outstanding stability while docked, and it’s shared across multiple ThinkPad products.

    * Based on testing three different product configurations with MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors. **CruiseTech note: quoted battery life is based on an estimated maximum. Actual battery life may vary significantly based on many factors, including screen brightness, active applications, features, power management settings, battery age and conditioning, and other customer preferences - as such we do not guarantee the system will reach the manufacturer's quote. We've seen anywhere between 3.25hr (e.g. updating Windows) to 10 hours (idling on power saving mode with wifi on) depending on how heavy the workload is.

    Prepare to be thunderstruck

     

    The X1 Carbon includes Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3—the technology that brings lightning-fast Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps. Connect a cable from your USB-C port to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled device, and get four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other port type, while also supplying power. So you get Thunderbolt 3, USB-C and DisplayPort - all rolled into one.

    Built to go on and on. And on.

    Like all ThinkPads, the X1 Carbon is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure they run in extreme conditions. From the arctic wilderness to desert dust storms, from zero-gravity to spills and drops, you can trust this laptop to handle whatever life throws your way. Plus, with four layers of carbon-fiber reinforced chassis and a magnesium alloy roll-cage for added strength, you know that reliability is our middle name.

    Forgo any concerns about being watched or inadvertently turning on the webcam with the new ThinkShutter. This built-in sliding cover ensures front-facing camera privacy and security when you opt for the HD camera. It's easy to use and delivers strong protection.

    Oh snap!

     

    The new ThinkPad X1 Carbon integrates with the ThinkPad Pro Dock (sold separately, not included with this listing), a whole new docking system that’s shared across most of the 2018 ThinkPad models. The new USB-C side mechanical dock easily connects with two male Type-C ports that snap into and automatically level your device. Once docked, your ThinkPad stays securely in place and sits at a slightly tilted angle for comfort.

    Good thing it's drool-proof

     

    The fingerprint reader thwarts biometric hacking with anti-spoofing technology—that means the fingerprint image is saved inside the chip, and as such, it’s not sent out for login authentication when you sign in. Your data is protected too, with the discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM), which encrypts your information. And if that’s not enough to make IT administrators love the new X1 Carbon, then the security capabilities that ThinkPad is enabled with is sure to have them drooling.

      Grading Criteria

      All of our laptops must pass functionality testing, and are ready to use out of the box. As for grading:

          • Firstly, the detailed photos & condition notes are available for most of the products (when applicable). They're aimed to be fair (though critical where needed), to give you a better idea of the condition, from the comfort of your home.
          • Secondly, the "Quick Grading" indicator (A/B+/B/C) is there to make your shopping easier. They're based on a set of minimum standard (across: the screen, inside casing, outside casing & the battery). The area which receives the lowest Grading is what the overall Grading will be. For instance if the screen is a B but for all other areas it is A, it would be a Grade B laptop. Note: Our laptops are not shipped in the original box.
      • Grade A
      • Grade B+
      • Grade B
      • Grade C

      Grade A is best described as 'Like-new'. This means that the laptop is almost new or open-box. The laptop may have very small wears and/or marks, however these must be very limited or almost unnoticeable.

      Grade B+ is a laptop with a very good condition screen. It may have some wear on the keypad, bezel or trackpad and could have some visible wear on the exterior such as the lid or base. Tests on the battery will show over 60% of the battery charge available.

      Grade B describes a laptop with a good condition screen, with faint pressure marks, surface marks and up to 2 stuck pixels. It may have some wear on the keypad, bezel or trackpad and could have some visible wear on the exterior such as the lid or base. Tests on the battery will show over 60% of the battery charge available.

      Grade C is used to describe any laptop with a screen that could be described as in a functional condition (visible pressure marks & surface marks, over 2 stuck pixels). There could be heavy wear on the keyboard, trackpad or palmrest and there may be heavy wear and small marks on the exterior such as the lid or base. Tests on the battery will show over 60% of the battery charge available.

      Customer Support: Repair & Return

      Repair / Servicing option explained:

      • The products that we sell have been thoroughly tested, before they're listed on our store. However, as with all electronic items, it may rarely need servicing. Following a remote diagnostics check, it may be that our technicians note that your device needs a servicing. If so, we may need the unit to back with us for servicing.
      • Our technicians will be here to assist you with the hardware related queries (e.g. my laptop doesn't switch on). Software package support should be directed at your software vendor (e.g. Solidworks, Excel, etc), who will have a better overview. Our technicians may be able to assist with some basic software queries;and if they find the queries needs to be addressed by the software vendors, they may signpost (that way you'll receive more specific support).

      • We are unable to offer any data backup / restore / recovery service. Additionally, we may need to data wipe the computer, as a part of the repair. As a good practice, we advise our customers to regularly back up their data.

      • The repair time time estimate is 2-5 days (excluding the transit time), unless otherwise stated. The return timetable is the following: once the returned items are safely & checked by our technicians. The refund will be issued within 2 business days of the receipt of the item.

      Repair & Refund Explained:

      • Within the first 30 days of the delivery: 1) repair; 2) replace (best effort basis); or 3) refund options are available (we'll cover the logistics cost).

      • After the initial 30 days of the delivery: a refund will only be arranged if neither repair nor replacement are possible.

      • After the initial 30 days of the delivery: the onus of the postage cost is with the buyer (for repairs).

      • After the first 6 month of the delivery: the repair/replacement will be quoted options only.

      Return option:

      • if the reason of return is "changed mind / I didn't like it", then we would expect our customer to cover the return postage cost.

      • If the item was not as described / does not function upon the delivery (you may need to drop it off at the Post Office), then we will arrange the return postage option at our cost.

      Return Courier Liability Explained:

      • Peace-of-mind insured return courier option: is available at £13.80 (deducted from the refund); if the item was not as described / does not function, the we'll cover this within the first 30 days (after the initial 30 days, the onus of this cost is with the customer). From the moment of the collection, the liability is with us (this requires for the item to be sufficiently packaged, please check with us first, if you need advice on packaging).

      • The customer may return their orders, using a courier of their own choosing. However, for the avoidance of doubt: if the return courier service is not paid directly for by us, then the customer is solely responsible for their parcel's safe transit (this is because the liability for the safe transit would be between the sender and the courier company, in case there the return is lost/damaged during the transit). Where the customer has paid for their return courier services themselves: we're unable to refund if the parcel is lost (the liability would be solely between the customer & their courier), this is the same case, if the parcel was damaged by the customers' courier service.

      EU/International customers: mark as "RETURNED GOODS" to avoid any Customs charges. We are not responsible for any charges imposed on packages returned unless otherwise agreed upon, the refund will be processed through the same payment method you used to make your original purchase.

      *unless damaged during the initial shipping, in which case let us know within 7 days of the delivery.

      Customer Support: Additional return policy 

      • Record-keeping:

        • We will record the item's serial number & condition.

        • Where the item is not received, we may register the serial with loss and theft databases to help prevent any fraudulent use or reselling of the item; we're not able to supply serial number before the item is delivered. This is to ensure the privacy of the end-customer.

      • Our items are thoroughly tested & logged for security reasons before shipping. We reserve the right to refuse a refund if we detect any of the following sign of customer induced damage (CID), this includes and is not limited to:

        • Liquid damage, visible physical drops/damages.

        • Damage caused by external electrical power surges. Using a Surge Protected Plug is a suggested generally.

        • If any warranty sticker, labels, key label have been removed/broken; if the bios have been changed; hardware has been modified.

        • If the product has been registered with the manufacturer (where applicable, please only register this product once you have fully inspected and are happy with the product).

      Buying:  EU/International orders?

      • We do not accept EU/international orders via our website (should be available in late 2020). However, you're based outside the UK & want to order from us - you can order the same items via our eBay store for global shipping (the price may vary marginally, due to different platform selling fees).

      Our eBay Store link: https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/cruisetechpremiumrefurbishers

      Buying: What about local collection / viewing?

      • Pre-COVID position: Most of our orders are online, as result this is where we focus on. We do not offer collection on any order. However, we may rarely be able to offer to view of our laptops locally, upon arrangements in advance

      • Since the COVID-19 situation: no local viewing facility / collection is offered. We'll update this page if the situation changes.

      (disclaimer: we're based in the upstairs office only in the photo above & are separate from the store below).

      Buying: Can I use 3rd Party Re-Shipping Centre / PO box?

      1. We have the right to cancel any order to a 3rd party shipping centre / PO Boxes / or reshipping centre unless we've agreed to these before the order. This is because these service tends to increase the shipping risk.

      2. Customers with a non-standard UK address, for example Armed Forces, should contact us in advance of purchasing, as there may be a surcharge or alternative method/steps of postage required.

      VAT could be confusing enough! Most people will not have heard of the VAT Margin Scheme, and will only be aware of the more common form of VAT - Standard VAT. Hopefully the explanation beneath clears things up for you.

      What is standard VAT?
      Standard VAT is the one you’ll have come across already and are aware of. It is currently charged at 20% and if you’re a VAT registered business you may be able to claim this back. 

      What is the VAT Margin Scheme?
      The VAT Margin Scheme is frequently used for second hand goods / refurbished products - where the price you see includes the VAT, but the VAT cannot be claimed back, nor displayed separately on the invoice. 

      How does the VAT Margin Scheme affect you?
      If you’re a consumer, then it doesn’t affect you at all! The price you see is the price you pay. 
      If you're VAT registered businesses (or other such organisation that could normally claim back the VAT on eligible purchases), then you will not be able to claim back the VAT on the goods sold on the VAT margin scheme. You might sometimes find it more economical to buy the same product on the Standard VAT scheme.
      We recognise that businesses (B2B), and household consumers (B2C) often need different products. As a result, we’re gradually stocking more business focused laptops on the Standard VAT scheme, whilst keeping the VAT margin scheme range for the consumers.
