Not what I expected

  • Summary: This laptop arrived yesterday, and the SSD was packaged separately - not installed. The installed hard drive runs Windows 8.1. The solid state drive has Windows 7 Pro, but does not boot when installed. Update (9/10/14): I contacted the seller, and he gave me instructions for changing settings in the bios to allow the laptop to boot from the SSD.

Great for the price

  • Summary: Ok, great buy for this version of the Lenovo x230. You should be aware that the HD Camera does not come with this version because it actually integrates the Intel Centrino Ultimate 6300 wifi card which uses 3 antennas, thus leaving no room for the camera. I have found that the speed makes up for the loss of camera. There is no bluetooth, but if you decide to add it, you can do it yourself for a cheap purchase of the bluetooth 4.0 card found on ebay.

A good computer with a minor issue

  • Summary: I like the computer. It is light weight. I can work on the computer unplugged for most of the day. I particularly like the digitizer that I can mark on my power point slide. I do have problems with the USB connections on this computer. They were from time to time disconnected for no apparent reason. I had to unplugged the USB drive then re-connected it.

Reliable workhorse and maybe the end of the line

Simon D. Collier, Amazon

  • Summary: I've used a number of x-series Lenovo laptops, including the awful x240 (see separate review). The X230 however has never let me down over 2 years of mostly daily use. It has a good keyboard is plenty fast enough (Windows 7) for normal office use and has all its keys in the right places (unlike x240). Recommended.

Great computer, few case design flaws.

M. Castel, Amazon
29 November 2013
  • 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!
