Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Review

Digitaltrends
29 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Lenovo’s X series has always been unique. HP’s Elitebook line offers the only real competition, but we’ve favored the ThinkPad in the past. This new model gives us no reason to change our recommendation. The X230 is the perfect laptop for a road warrior.

  • Conclusion: But even with Microsoft's new operating system, the X230T will still be ungainly. This kind of convertible computer won't be much more than a niche machine until it's as thin and light as an ultrabook in notebook mode and as an iPad in tablet mode.
  • Pros: Solid construction and performance, Instant-on from sleep mode, Backlit keyboard
  • Cons: Weight and thickness, Screen bounces when performing touch tasks in notebook mode

  • Excerpt: Like the X220 before it, the compact ThinkPad X230 is a worthy heir to ThinkPads' black-suited, button-down business heritage. New competition from sleek ultrabooks (including Lenovo's), however, suddenly makes it look chunky.
  • Pros: Solid construction, Crisp backlit keyboard, Sharp matte screen, Swift performance
  • Cons: A bit thick compared with ultrabooks, Small screen and touch pad

Lenovo ThinkPad X230

MobileTechReview.com
4 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Last year, the ThinkPad X220 won our Editor's Choice award, and it passes the crown on to the new ThinkPad X230. Yes, there are thinner and sexier looking ultraportables, but none pack the processing power, IPS display and that unbeatable keyboard.
  • Pros: Extremely fast yet small and light, plenty of ports, IPS display is excellent.
  • Cons: ThinkPad look isn't for everyone, it's a bit thick compared to admittedly less powerful Ultrabooks.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X230

Wired
4 June 2012
  • Excerpt: A little over a year ago, just before ultrabook mania got its start, we crowned Lenovo’s ThinkPad X220 a near-masterpiece of ultralight laptop design. The 12.5-inch, 3.3-pound laptop had power to spare, nearly five hours of battery life with the stock 6-cell unit, and a solid array of ports.
  • Pros: Configuration covers all the bases, particularly for business users clinging to legacy peripherals. Street cred in the boardroom.
  • Cons: Suddenly thick and heavy in an ultrabook world. Disappointing battery life vs. its predecessor. Acceptable but uninspiring performance. Keyboard switcharoo will cause pitchforks to be brandished.
