So finally pulling a trigger on our first Lenovo X1 Yoga, and went to the Lenovo site and customized the unit just to see what the price was, since I was planning on buying at the Microsoft store, and getting the Microsoft additional warranty and such. Left it on my phone and headed to the store, where low and behold, it was almost 30% more (not identical, they didn’t have the 1T SSD, their unit was 512Gb.
That’s almost a K difference in unit cost. I asked them about price matching and they just smiled sadly and shook their heads. At this point I see very little to make me want to do anything more with the Microsoft store. Hit me in the pocketbook and watch how fast my loyalty disappears.
