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. Keyboard doesn't have an integrated numpad--no access to special characters such as, degree symbol, em dashes, section symbol, and international characters (e.g., é, §, °, ß, etc.).
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. A backlit keyboard is essential for working from bed or on dark plane flights. The new keyboards backlighting is fantastic.
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. The BATTERY; how is it possible that such an expensive devise can not hold the battery in its frame. The battery does not fit and is shaking in the notebook like a dog tail (obviously only if you move it, lol).
NO BLUETOOTH Built-In, IT'S A CTO(CUSTOMIZED SPECIFICATION)
Chris Qian, Amazon
24 November 2012
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!!! The difference currently I find: this one has NO build-in Bluetooth connection It's quite disappoint for me that the seller could not notify this difference in the description or in the title...
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. Don't get me wrong: I tried it and the tactile feedback is still as crisp as on the old models. However, there are two main differences: 1) The keyboard layout. Some function keys were removed, some keys changed position. If you're a serious user (e.g.
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: 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. The edge of th screen is not sensitive to touch, only the pen, which created a probelm when the menu is hidden.
Terrible Customer Support from Lenovo + Coil Whine
16 July 2012
Pros: I bought this laptop from the factory, I read reviews saying how bad the customer support is, but I thought to myself that will never be me. Unfortunately, it is. The day after I received it I was hearing coil whine from inside the laptop. Also, the wireless connection was slow or nonexistent. I had it factory upgraded to the Intel 6300 N Ultimate wireless card and I suspect they attached the antennas incorrectly because I have spent hours troubleshooting and download...
Cons: I know, for a convertible tablet PC, this is the best spec. But know what you're getting into with tech support. Lenovo's service has been unprofessional and inexcusable. Also, in my case, it looks like Lenovo is cutting corners with internal components. Coil whine is a bad sign.
Summary: Hallo, anscheinend bin ich der erste, der hier Rezension von Thinkpad Convertible Tablet schreibt. Was die Leistung/Qualität Verhältnis angeht, ist alles ziemlich gut. IPS Panel mit der saftvollen Farbendarstellung ist super, 170 Grad Winkelbetrachtung ist wirklich beeindruckend, sowas trifft man kaum bei TN Panels. Touchscreen funktioniert soweit tadellos. An den Trackpoint muss man schon wirklich gewöhnen.
