Summary: Last minute purchase. I broke my X220, and needed a replacement fast. While the battery life dwindles next to my X220, the i7 and increased memory makes a world of a difference. The touch screen while nice, does require a high degree of precision. However, I have also noticed that several pieces of plastic are chipping off the computer; luckily the roll-cage helps keep the computer together!
Summary: Bought a new X230 last winter it lasted 8 months and then totally died. Lenovo Customer Service was totally worthless..Even though the web site states the system is still under International Warranty, Lenovo says they do not have to honor the warranty..I own 4 older Thinkpads, but Lenovo Quality and customer service is not IBM's....
Summary: This product is very nice with a core i7 3520 cpu, a SATA III 7200 rpm 500g hard disk, and 2 sodimm 4G 1600 MHz RAM memory. X230 is portable and fashion to work with, it meets my daily work needs. I hope Lenovo could improve their strategies and lower the price in China so that Chinese, like me, won't have to purchase Lenovo's products overseas to save the money.ヽ(ｏ`皿′ｏ)ﾉ
Summary: The seller was nice but the computer was hacked and I almost sent it back! After updating software and spending an additional $400 on protection and upgrades, its alright. The more I use it the more I like it. I use it for school but I am uneasy of using for my finances because it was previously hacked.
Summary: I've been a huge fan of convertibles and the current trend of "tablets" a la iPad makes me rather sad. I find convertibles such as the x230t to be so much more useful and powerful. Before the x230t, I've had a Dell xt and then a Dell xt2. I'm very glad I've decided to get the x230t instead of the xt3 this time around; the digitizer on the x230t is miles ahead of the N-trig on the Dells.
Summary: Once I got all the drivers updated and got the WI-FI tuned in. Nice product. I had to get used to the touchpad/track point. I'm still trying to figure out how to double tap with the pen/stylist. All around nice tablet.
Summary: The product itself is good but in case you need customer service from Lenovo, be ready to be knocked around for days or be willing to pay the price of the machine every time you send the machine for repair. The 3 year warranty does not mean much. You need accidental damage protection because they will classify everything as non-warranty - that is unless you are ready to dispute it and be willing to be without your machine for weeks.
Summary: This convertible laptop has exceeded all my expectations! Buy it if you are a professional on the move. It is very sturdy, the HDD has rubber protection against falls. The system has a feature that stops the HDD from spinning when it senses a drop or a hard knock. The touchscreen is very accurate and fully responsive unlike other touch screen laptops I have owned. The digitzing pen is very usefull with drawing programs from Adobe.
Summary: These ThinkPad's are built like tanks, and it's rare to get the X230's with the i7 processor - a worthwhile upgrade. Most that I see are always with i3 or i5. I especially like that they are MILC (military) tested for pressure, humidity, vibration, temperature, dust, etc. That way I don't have to worry about a simple drop or trying to be super careful whenever I carry the thing - it's going to last regardless of what I do.
