    I've been eyeing the Lenovo X1C, but I really want to see one in person - however, is it just me, or is this laptop not on display in any retail stores? I've tried John Lewis and Currys/PC World, but I've kinda run out of options!

    Anyone in the UK help me out?

    No clue mate. Would be interested too in testing out

    Nope, not available anywhere it seems. This is one of the major issues with 'premium' PC laptops in the UK - they're near-impossible to try out.

    I haven't checked, but I'm hoping Lenovo have a good return policy, in that case?

    UK Distance Selling regulation allows for a 14-day return period, no questions asked. Some are longer (e.g. Amazon at 30 days) but it depends on the retailer.

    In the US the return policy is 30 days. Does that differ for the UK? Or does the UK Distance Selling Regulation require a minimum of 14 days, but longer if that is the manufacturer's policy?

    But won't they have some clause about it being unopened and unused?

    Your policy is far more generous. The law here is 14 days but some retailers (e.g. Amazon) offer longer. However, this is only for online sales - if you purchased in a store, a retailer can refuse to issue a refund/replacement if the package/seal has been opened/broken.

    Not for distance selling as you did not have the opportunity to reasonably inspect it before purchase. As always, check their policy carefully first, though - I'm not a lawyer!

    That is what I was curious about, because that is Lenovo’s policy here. Is that policy country dependent? Apple only does 14 days. I think Huawei is maybe even worse at 7. But most seem to do 30
