  • 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

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X230

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.
