Deal Details

There are plenty of X230T Tablets in stock on the Lenovo Outlet. These are NEW, not refurbished! Price is $632 + free shipping (I should have mentioned that in the title).

Link to Outlet [lenovo.com]

Important:

Do not filter by "X Series Tablet"

Instead, filter by "X Series" only. Then, filter results by "Price (Low)" and scroll until you get to $630 price, and you should see plenty of tablets in stock. I was pretty surprised to see so many, and hopefully these actually have multitouch unlike the last deal.

Good luck!

Yeah, sorry but this is not the kind of machine that even is meant for being a consumer-type laptop Frown. You'd be far better served with something like a Y580 or a Z585 type machine, or U410 if you want something a bit more compact.
Nah it's kool. I just have to get used to it probably. I am just really stressed with school, classes, and midterms at the moment. So I am a bit more grouchy than normal.

I will have more time on Wed. from then on, so I should be good to mess around with the system.

I will be honest, but even if I got a IdeaPad of some sort with this processor and specs, it would cost more than this machine or around the same price. So I may as well keep it or possibly sell it.

Mine didnt come with fingerprint reader. In all fairness IDK how this thing is worth $500...
Man this is completely uncalled for, with that kind of specs it's worth $1000 brand new. Just get the same CPU/RAM/HDD combo on any consumer laptop and you are pushing towards $500, let along the tablet form factor and Thinkpad build quality, and on top of that IBM customer service.

If you got the E530 for $326 like I did then you will probably comment how large it is, just got mine today. In all you probably should have gotten on the E430 deal in Oct that one has i5-3210M for $336. The beauty of the x230T is that it's a extremely portable package but with normal laptop guts, so people will take it on the go and enjoy its portability, but when they take it back to their office they will DOCK it and use it with larger monitor and keyboard/mouse.

My recommend is that keep it for a month, if you haven't gotten used to it then you probably won't, at that point put it on ebay or CL, you can easily make $150 selling it that way.

Think it'll make any difference if I swap to SSD or not on this? It currently has a 320GB 7200rpm in it right now. I need to pick up another 4GB RAM, then get a screen protector for it. I do miss multitouch though. But the pen works very well with the tablet.

Right now I am using a 15.6" laptop, which is why I am commenting on the screen size.

SSD will make a huge difference, it's like Viagra for the computer. Get an external monitor and dock and you'll overlook the size difference, you can pay for it by selling the V570.

Yes that is my plan, or my other thought, what do you suggest, mSATA SSD or full size? Would it affect the battery life much if I were to have both? I already have a display-port adapter from my old Thinkpad so I have HDMI already.

Also, I got the free W8 upgrade paper with the laptop as well, should I upgrade? Is there anyway I can purchase the upgrade and use it on another computer? Since mine is not true multi-touch, idk...

You should keep the HDD for storage and get a crucial mSATA m4 ssd. That combo seems very popular these days. 8gb ram is good, but I think you should skip the screen protector. The screen is already protected by the gorilla glass shield so you will just end up muddying the screen further, and it's somewhat pointless to spend $ for extra protection on refurbs.

If you don't have time on your hand then a regular 7mm such as Samsung 840 or 840 Pro should be more than enough to give you that needed boost. It took less than 5 minutes to pop out the old HD and replace it with SSD. MSATA will require a little more work so save that for when you really have some free time. First thing I did when I got my x230 is a clean install of Windows. Put that on the SSD then it will scream.

I plan on doing the clean install this weekend. I do not have my USB DVD burner with me at the moment. And I do have time to put in an mSATA drive. The only thing I will have to research is how to boot from it and such. mSATA is very new tech for me. I did not know anything about it till I got this notebook.

Definitely Crucial M4 mSATA SSD + original HDD combo, I have that SSD in my T430 and even though mine is limited to SATAII due to the presence of Ultrabay it's super fast, your x230t should have full SATAIII speed in mSATA port so the experience might be even better. Performance SSDs such as the m4 and 830 are actually pretty power hungry, in many cases more than efficient HDDs such as the Scorpion Blue. So if you install both it's like having two hard drives in the machine.

Go ahead purchase the upgrade and apply for the rebate, you can download the Win 8 ISO and install it on any upgradable (win 7, vista, xp sp3) machines.

There's x1 and then there's x1 carbon. If you are planning to go with x1, make sure it's the latest model. Without looking at the item, I am thinking it's last generation x1, so for i3, I wouldn't bite. Better off sticking with the x230t.

Yes, it is last generation, if it was X1 Carbon or X1 Touch, I would not even bother with asking on here. And would have taken them all.

Ok, good to know, I will stick with that I have.
