Nice little setup. My wife replaced her tablet and laptop with the Asus Vivotab. I know it's only Windows RT but it will do 99% of what people use laptops for and she never had to shut it down. Stays in standby for over a week, I flipped it open and started using instantly.

Two things on your x230t. - Change to an SSD. You will see MUCH quicker performance along with better battery life and MUCH MUCH faster boot up times.

2nd - I don't believe that your I7 is a quad core. I'm not sure the performance advantage of a dual core I7 over an I5 is really worth the price premiums that they charge. Seems like I3/I5/I7 are all in the same area if their clockspeed and processor generation are the same (high level 3rd gen I3 and low level I7 are somewhat similar).

The quad core I7 completely changes and jumps by a good margin (20% or more).

If I needed a tablet/laptop I probably would take a look at this. I came in here to look up some info on it but a shame sold out already. Change this to an SSD and for $535 would have had a nice little laptop.
Yep, that is not a quad-core (the ending letters are QM for those on the CPU model). It's not really much different from the i5 3320M in terms of speed. I agree completely that an SSD is a must.

Absolutely.

Just one observation: The x220/ x230 use the 7mm SSD (not the 9.5mm ones). So if you are purchasing the SSD elsewhere, be careful when you purchase.

Some folks report that it may be possible to remove cover for the 9.5mm SSD (which would likely void the warranty on the SSD) to fit it into the notebook, but not certain about that.

As opposed to what, in an ultraportable convertible 12.5" IPS screen pressure-sensitive workhorse? The HD4000 is more than enough (especially in dual channel mode) for low-settings 3d gaming even but that's not the purpose of this kind of device Wink. Go look for a $300 17.3" Dell.

Dang, I like this over the X230t I got, as I believe mine comes with the outdoor screen, so no multitouch. But I got an i5 in mine and it was for the same pice as this. What do you guys think? This a better trade-off?

It depends if the multitouch is extremely important to you or not (and do you even know whether yours has it yet?). The specs on this are far worse, from CPU, to graphics, and more, than the i5-3320M based ones otherwise.

Better yet, go for an mSATA SSD. This way you can keep your HDD bay available. Being able to keep this extra drive is worth whatever premium there may be on the mSATA drive.

I recently bought Lenovo G580, Intel Core i5-3210M, 15.6" Screen Display, Notebook with 4GB Memory, 500GB Hard Drive, Windows 8 for $480 (including shipping and taxes). Can anyone comment how good is it a deal? If not worth I still can make returns :/
I wouldn't consider it a bad deal, but it definitely isn't anything spectacular (especially as a SDer!). The 3rd gen i5 is a plus, though. Overall, it the G580 is more of a consumer-grade laptop (like the post you quoted states) while something like a ThinkPad will be much more durable and reliable.

It is going to depend on how you want to use your computer. I personally love my ThinkPad x230i. The IPS display is great, and I find the 12.5" screen size is an excellent middle ground between a 10-11" netbook and 14-15.6" standard notebook screen. It also shares the same resolution as most 15.6" screens (1366x768), so, for me, there was no advantage to get the bigger screen.

Again, it depends largely on how you use your computer, but if you just want something to use Office applications on and to browse the Internet, then I would stick with what you have.

Pen only is a bit of a hassle if you just want to play around with your notebook. Gotta pull the pen out, and put it back every time you shut down. For general use, touch is more quick-and-easy. Pen is good for note taking and digital art only, IMO.

Tried loading Win8 on my X61 tablet, which is a pain to use with the pen.

Yipes, I didn't realize these things had mSATA slots! Now I'm almost wishing I'd gotten one with no SSD and just added an mSATA one to go with the normal drive bounce . Oh well, I'll add a second SSD if I ever need the storage Stick Out Tongue .

Do not buy this, please. I have the LEnovo tablet. None of the drivers work, I can't get my webcam to work, the form factor is putrid, the screen stinks, the tablet function with the pen needs to be resynced every couple of days and even then its about 1-2 millimeters off. It stinks. My school made me buy this and I hate it every damn day.

I would look for an x220 or and x230 non tablet and swap out the HDD with SSD. Components on the x220 and x230 are ridiculously easy to replace. You even have the option to put in mSATA SSD and keep the existing HDD. Put OS and a few programs on the mSATA SSD and it will fly. Great keyboard and love the pointing stick. The mSATA SSD replace the WAN card and if you don't have the WAN card then you could just pop in the mSATA SSD.

Yea, I do not plan on upgrading to W8, just do not like the layout. Much prefer all desktop mode over tablet mode.
