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: (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:

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

Company Name: 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.

Is anyone doing anything with their mobile broadband card? Is it possible for me to take it out and sell it on eBay? Someone said it's worth $100?
