Summary: I have only had this computer for two months and my experience has been no short of a nightmare. It malfunctions all the time. Every time I have have an assignment due date coming up, the key board or mouse stops working. I have been several places to try to fix it but the problem always comes back!
Summary: There's no significant improvement overall--this laptop is very responsive, but I really take issue with the new keyboard. It's a shame because this is one area Lenovo stood out. Keyboard doesn't feel as good as the previous found on previous models--too soft and the keys feel fragile.
Summary: This Notebook is not a bad one but the TRACKPAD will drive you crazy. It is just a piece of useless technology. In simple words it is just messing up your inputs which you want to do by keyboard and using it as a mouse is the worst experience I ever had.

Summary: It's really careless for me to bought this so called Thinkpad X230, I visited Lenovo's site and search Amazon and finally found this one. I used to think this is the economic version of Thinkpad X230 which had the same specs as on the Lenovo's official online store, but IT ISN'T!!!
Summary: I had the possibility to test this device today head-to-head with its predecessor, the X220. It's a nice laptop for sure. But unfortunately, Lenovo traded design for functionality in redesigning the keyboard.
Summary: as a note book it is ok but battery is max 3 hours and the mouse is the worse mouse on earth if you will use the notebook while u r sleeping on bed no way to control it plus the display is not as sony and samsung
Summary: If it just has an HD port instead of VGA, it will be perfect. Otherwise; the battery, CPU, RAM are great EDIT: after a lot of (normal) use to this product, I have to edit my review. the included battery is the small one, it won't last more than an hour while watching YouTube videos.
Summary: Don't buy this computer. It's that simple. I had to buy this because my old school mandated it, and it's telling that they switched right back to dell after this computer failed. It's a fine laptop in most regards, but where it falls down in reliability, and that topples everything.
Summary: Let me start with the improvements (over the X201). In my view, the keyboard is a huge improvement. The lack of a backlit keyboard led me to other laptops in between my X201 and the x230 even though I was a huge fan of the X201.
Summary: I bought a fully loaded X230 tablet and found that the operating system and drivers ruined the useability, and the registry corrupted three times. Lenovo tech support could not help. The complexity of the Wacom drivers, over the touch screen drivers seemed to craete issues.
