    Have no worries about the new keyboard – it’s a dream!, September 3, 2012
    K. Lam (San Jose, CA) –

    This review is from: Thinkpad X230 Laptop Lenovo, 12.5″ Ultraportable Notebook(Newer model of x220) (12.5” x230, Economic) (Personal Computers)

    I custom-ordered from the Lenovo/Thinkpad site. My configuration:
    Thinkpad X230 Tablet
    + Core i7 2.90 GHz Ivy Bridge processor
    + 8 GM RAM
    + 128 GB Solid-State Drive
    + 1366×768 Matte Multi-Touch Screen with Active Stylus
    + 9-cell extended battery (sticks out the back and adds a bulge at the bottom; the 6-cell battery just sticks out the back)
    + Windows 7 Pro
    + Ultra-Base 3 with DVD/RW optical drive
    – No discrete graphics card option

    I’ve been a long-time Thinkpad fan–including 600E (late 1990s), R40 (early 2000s), T42 (mid 2000s), T420 (late 2000s)–for the rock-solid dependability, non-nonsense styling, and in particular the king-of-them-all keyboard. I mistakely tried a Dell Latitude E6400 for a couple of years, and I truly hated it, despite its own pointer stick and solid construction. When I decided to get this X230 Tablet, the only thing I was worried about was how the new keyboard was going to feel. Well, have no fear. I am a big fan of the new keyboard. It’s got deep travel, its motion is the perfect blend between smooth travel and pleasing resistance, and the contoured surface actually feels comforable. This new keyboard is a winner. Other than that, there really isn’t anything that needs to be said about this machine that the prospective buyer wouldn’t already know. I loaded it up to the gills with the fastest and best of everything, except a 3G cellular card–totalled over $3000 MSRP before a the Ultrabase 3 and extra power adapters. On paper, the only thing the X230T lacks is discrete graphics, but the Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics that comes with the Ivy Bridge chipset is good enough for my occasional Engineering analysis and 3D modeling work–just make sure to get a least 8 GB RAM to share with the inegrated graphics. Plus, the Ultrabase 3 is able to support dual monitors via its dual VGA+DisplayPort ports. Just one final tip–get the Multitouch keyboard; you’ll be ready for Windows 8 Pro when it’s released.

    Beware of the keyboard, October 18, 2012

    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. coding) who needs special keys on a regular basis, you will have to re-learn the layout for the new generation of the ThinkPads- not only the X230. 2) Island keys. Lenovo has already indirectly admitted in their blog that the sole reason for changing from the classic key shape to the island/chiclet keys was for esthetic reasons- that is, to run after a current design trend. Unforgivable for a device that is (was?) aimed at professional users. The classic key shape has some advantages, e.g. you automatically position your finger in the middle of the key, resulting in better orientation when moving to distant keys. During my test of the new keyboard, it seemed that the force/path response is different depending on if you hit the key in the middle or at its borders. Due to the lack of the “inner curb”, you don’t know if you’re hitting it in the middle, though, and this degrades the typing experience.

    For me, the new keyboard does not compare favorable to the old one. It is still a good keyboard compared to what other companies throw on the market, no doubt. But compared to the old keyboard, there are _only_ disadvantages. My recommendation to current ThinkPad users is to get one of the old models (X220, T420…) as long as they are still available. And then reconsider the market in three years from now- maybe the folks at Lenovo come to their senses. Unlike many of the furious ThinkPad-“followers” who ranted about the new keyboard on the net, I actually tried it- and for me this is a technological step backward. Unacceptable for a top-notch business device.

    For any user switching from another brand to ThinkPad- go for it, you won’t be disappointed.

    At my job, I work with computers from morning to evening. Many generations of ThinkPads have gone through my hands, as well as business models from Toshiba, Apple… Also, I’m a desktop keyboard enthusiast. I own several mechanical keyboards for work and leisure, including keyboards with different Cherry MX keys and a buckling spring device. From that point of view, I hope that my review is somewhat qualified.

    This review is from: Thinkpad X230 Laptop Lenovo, 12.5″ Ultraportable Notebook(Newer model of x220) (12.5” x230, Economic) (Personal Computers)

    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 clearly. I think this is some kind of intended mis-leading.

    I strongly suggest do not buy from this supplier.
