Deal Details

BACK AGAIN! And the status for my order is "Released to Manufacturing". It seems that you will not be cancelled...

Lowest price, even lower than the price of Black Friday and with an extra "Integrated Mobile Broadband (Sierra Wireless MC8355 - Gobi 3000"

Link: http://lite.corporateperks.com/holidayfair (Need registration), and choose Lenovo. It will lead you to "Lenovo Corporate Perks Exclusive Offer", and also give you 3% reward.

To register, you can try your work email or something I found in the internet: http://alamoinsurance.net/alamo-p...ate-perks/

*If you don’t have a company email address click “Have a Company Code?” and register with your personal email address,

Company Name: Alamoinsurance.net and company code (case sensitive): alamoperks

------------------------------------------------
Now the x230 does not show price, so that is the tricky.

choose shop all x230, and the third one without price, customize and buy:

1. in display model: choose the 3rd option: 12.5" Premium HD (1366x768) LED Backlit Display, Mobile Broadband Ready, 2x2 Antenna (You will get ips panel and webcam)

2. in camera, make sure the 720p cam is checked.

3. in integrated WiFi Wireless LAN Adapters, choose Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 AGN

The price will change from NA to 561.66... You can upgrade something else but make sure the price for i5 is above 550 or i7 above 750 so that you can check out.

That's it!

Be quick and quiet... Sometimes it is cancelled, sometimes not.

You can upgrade anything to make the price above 550!

=============

Also it is rumored that you should not choose win8 and win8 is not compatible with GOBI3000, and they have to cancel the order.

DEAD AGAIN





I figure i'd post some important battery/ weight information for the x230. So I looked every where for battery info such as weight added to x230 for 4cell vs 6cell vs 9 cell and the approx battery life before recharging and found the following info:

First here's what lenovo says about the different cell's:
4 cell (29 Wh) − up to 8.9 hrs
6 cell (63 Wh) − up to 9.9 hrs
9 cell (94 Wh) − up to 14.8 hrs
6 cell (57 Wh) Slice Battery − up to 24.9 hrs with 9 cell and 6 cell slice

Obviously those numbers are very exaggerated. More realistic numbers are as follows along w/ weight of x230 with the diff battery cell:

4 cell - 4-5 hrs (+/- an hr depending on use), 2.96lbs
6 cell - 6-7 hrs (+/- an hr depending on use), 3.4lbs
9 cell - 9-11 hrs(+/- 90 mins depending on use), 3.8lbs

As for the extra battery slice I believe realistically gives at least 20+ hrs battery life combined with 9 cell. The ThinkPad Battery 19+ slice weighs 1.66lbs so that would make the x230 weigh in some where around 3.96lbs (4lbs) which is excellent since you'd be getting so much battery life out of a machine that weighs LESS than some "ultrabooks".
There you go guys =)

Yeah I just got it last month. Kept getting blue screen errors, doesn't wake from sleep, and windows updates keep failing resulting in an endless reboot loop. The optical drive door keeps popping open as well. It could be a hardware problem and not willing to chance not getting my $ back for it in case that's what it is
