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: We use these regularly for healthcare industry clientele. Quick, powerful, and no Windows 8. Sturdy and a very nice touchscreen. Unfortunately, Lenovo does NOT manufacture 9- or 12-cell batteries for these, so if you're unable to charge every 3-4 hours, you'll want to disable one core and hyper-thread in the system BIOS and use the ThinkVantage Power Manager to dim the display and operate in maximum battery mode.
Summary: This line of ThinkPad was required for my school this semester. When I turned it on, the first thing I do with my PCs is get the Windows Updates. Had a mess of trouble getting them installed. Moral of the story, do not connect the dock while updating. After factory restoring the computer 3 times, I managed to get them installed by booting to clean boot.
Summary: Lenovo ThinkPad X230 is a great machine, the only suggestion I have is to improve the Trackpad and remove the tiny raised dots that make the finger movement very difficult; I would say this is the only black spot on this machine. Hope the manufacturer will take this comment seriously.
Summary: I had to purchase a thinkpad for my engineering courses so I purchased this one upgraded with i7 and 8gb of ram of all the computers I have used this one is by far one of the best because of all the features that it has. It is also really quick and has good battery life. The only real cons are the screen size and the design is rather bland.
Summary: This little laptop is wonderful in every way but one, the speakers do not produce very good sound in my opinion. However, I didn't buy for its sound, but it would be nice to be able to play music on it, and you can but it's not very good. Other than that very small objection, I love it and would recommend it and buy another one. It's reliability it without parallel for the money.
Summary: I am really happy with this model and the way Flipkart handled the packaging and shipping. It arrived within a week of ordering. This model is really portable workhorse! Has full fledged 3 gen i5 processor and an amazing 'Thinkpad' build. It is really light for a Thinkpad and also houses many expansion options.
Sehr gut, aber auch sehr teuer; sehr guter Support

Summary: Ich nutze seit einigen Monaten den X230 mit i7-Prozessor und 180 GB SSD. Das Gerät ist sehr klein und leicht. Leichter als die meisten "Ultrabooks". Dem mitgelieferten Akku geht schnell die Puste aus (1 - 2 Stunden), aber mit dem optionalen 7,7 Ah-Akku läuft das Gerät zuverlässig auch auf längeren Zugfahrten oder Flugreisen. Die neue Tastatur ist (anfänglichen Befürchtungen zum Trotz) ebenfalls sehr gut.
Excerpt: Hace unos días os hable de un portátil que os lo aconseje solo para los que trabajen en empresas para temas de contabilidad por los programas que tenia y sus funciones y además os dije que el sonido de los altavoces no era muy bueno, pues con este portátil Lenovo Thinkpad X230, es todo lo contrario, sobre todo en sonido que es bueno y muy claro.
