Last Edited by groundzyy December 12, 2012 at 09:20 PM
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.

Still Alive.

IMO, must have upgrades:
-IPS screen
-Don't need Webcam camera get 3x3 antenna and intel 6300
-9 cell battery (can go all day computing without AC plug)
-3 year warranty for $80 - ridiculously cheap.

This Lappy is among the best in battery life with a 9 cell. Fken ridiculous. Plus an IPS screen.

Those others cheap laptop lack many of the functionality of the X230. Pretty much decked out all features albeit, it's thick and lack modern attractiveness and slimness but many options for future upgrades.

Total came out to be $690.67 w/ tax for an IPS, intel 3x3 6300 wireless, backlit, 9 cell all day computing, expandability...this is definitely a slick deal.

Thanks OP

Black Friday Front page deal is 608 without IPS panel.

This one is 560 with IPS panel and something worth around $100 although you might never need.

Just so that you are aware.. X230T only comes in Windows 7. As of yet, it does not come in Win 8. I am assuming since you are looking at the tablet version, you want touch screen and it makes sense with Win 8. Also the tablet version is heavier than the non-tablet one and possibly consumes more battery

I ended up canceling my order. As good as this deal was, the resolution is really killer. I thought I could justify it to myself, but I much much prefer 16:10 over 16:9
