Awesome laptop that can be upgraded and turned into various useful systems but not knowing what kind of panel it is and what condition it will arrive, perhaps better look for T series for a hit more on ebay. Usually 150 range.

N, it's the tablet edition. Specs are way off on that site though If you scroll.

One of my favorite laptops of all time. The keyboard on this is amazing! Note, this is the X220T (tablet)

All x220 tablets use IPS screens. It's not particularly high quality or is the stylus anything to write home about. The regular x220 is far more portable but the screen you get is a crap shot.

I used one of these for a few years before upgrading to a surface pro 4. You can easily whitelist a new wifi card, hackintosh it, add a msata SSD, upgrade ram to 16 gigs, etc.

Accessories (dock, third party batteries, spare ac adapters) are very very cheap.

The 768p screen will kill this for most people. It's also *very chunky* by modern standards. But the price is very cheap. You'll want at least another 8 gig stick of memory for it.

How is the non-tablet version more portable than the tablet version? I just got an X320t. It's great. When I researched it, I found it's the sweet spot model. It's better than the x220t and the x240t. Lenovo changed the model line with the x240t considerably much to the dismay of consumers/independent reviewers.

Do you mean you got the x230t? I went with x220t myself because of third party battery support and the old keyboard format.

The tablet format for these machines did not age gracefully IMO. Lenovo did not really keep up with updates (fingerprint reader no longer has support in windows 10 for example). All in all, it's too heavy for what it brings in 2019. Modern stylus touting laptops fit my ideal more, like my sp4, which itself is pushing 4 years old.

Regarding portability, the non-tablet is much smaller, and for the most part, even the modern x series follow the form factor of the x220 to this day. While I don't see many x series tablets in the wild, many colleagues still rock their x220 and x230 without issue.

Nonetheless, for the curious, I still recommend this machine esp at this price. I still have mine doing full duty as a hackintosh, although it doesny leave my home anymore.

Oh, SURE! These are still GREAT! I recommend people buy this deal.

I just gave my X31 away. I still have an X61S. Yes, I typed my model wrong. It's an X230t. It still holds true to the "X" line's size and looks. I think mine is the first year they changed the keyboard to the chiclet style. I think it still has the same dimensions. Are you saying the tablet form is thicker than the non-tablet form? I forget where I read. It was one of the usual, I found it Googling around and going to the usual IBM/Lenovo users' sites. I forgot them and struggled Googling around. They went way off the X-line standards with the X240. I had/have docking stations for my X31 and X61S.

When I cleaned up my X31 to give it to my brother, I noticed it was very fast with Win7 to do anything other than audio/video work. I ran Linux on it too. I run Win10 and Linux on my X61S. The X31 still has it's glitter finish.

My X230t's hinge is solid, no damage, no ware and tare anywhere. There's just some sticker residue. I got a sweet deal on my X230t. It's my first tablet. I don't really have a need for a tablet that I can think of. I don't think it was made with the glitter finish. It's rubbery black.

I got it on eBay for a song. I couldn't believe it. It was the cheapest one on eBay. All the others were a lot more expensive. Many had severe damage. The non-tablet version was selling higher than what I paid. It came with RAM and a 500GB HDD, no battery, no power adapter and no stylus. The HDD has some sort of from-the-factory thing to install a fresh copy of Win7. I wonder if it has any special Lenovo things. IBM used to have their own scheme in their OS and had some good tools. They used to have a reinstall partition for Win. I wonder if this is that. I don't want to lose it by letting it install Win7.

I got an amazing deal on eBay from someone in my state for the 9-cell battery. He said it lasts several hours. He included a power adapter, stylus and MORE RAM. I offered a little less than he asked for. He listed it as "or best offer. I expected to meet in the middle but he said YES.

YES!! I only expected the battery. The power adapter and RAM were in the picture. I asked if the removable wire came with the power adapter. He said yes. So, I hoped to get all that was pictured. I was surprised to get the stylus which wasn't in the picture. Some tablets use only THEIR stylus. I don't know if my screen takes finger commands. Sadly only one stick was 8GB. The other was 2 or 4GB.

God and the laptop fairies, trolls, gargoyles and angels were smiling on me. I couldn't believe no one had snatched this up before me. I thought it would sell before he responded. I had been looking for some weeks and couldn't find anything good for a decent price. He got back to me in less than 30-minutes and I bought it. Thank you very much sir.

I'll pay it forward. I bought 2 SSDs to dress up two of my old laptops and gave them away. The whole shebang cost me less than $100 not including the 2 SSDs. It has the better CPU too. I'm going to get an SSD for it around black Friday.

I don't mind the IBM screens. They had the same rez long after Lenovo took over. Kids dump on them. I don't game. The rez is fine for me. The size is great. The X-line tried to stay the size of a small keyboard without losing keys or doubling up key duty. ... like Sony used to try to keep their device size the size of the media it played.

They're thicker than some Chromebooks and the same thickness as others. Their left to right and front to back dimensions are smaller than most Chromebooks. The weight is good. I lug a heavy Dell around. It's given me constant shoulder pain. I used to carry the X31 around and forget it was there.

My x220 must really be confused, given it is running quite nicely as a Hackentosh with 16GB and a 750GB SSD. Nice deal OP, might pick up the tablet version too.
