Lenovo ThinkPad X230t Review

Lenovo ThinkPad X230t is a really solid convertible that can replace tablets, while delivering the familiar ThinkPad laptop qualities. The ergonomic and sturdy case is made from good quality composite materials. There are a good variety of expansion options and port varieties, although the whole design could have been more compact. The chiclet-style keyboard is quite similar to what we see on the original X230, which provides precise keystroke and excellent typing experience.

The internal hardware components are reasonably powerful to run demanding Windows software, without taxing the cooling solution too much. Other positive aspects are 12.5” IPS display, long battery runtimes and low noise level even under full load. Despite all the positive characteristics, the Lenovo ThinkPad X230t still looks rather pricey at about $2200 (Approx. £1416).

The laptop is powered by Intel Core i5 3320M Ivy Bridge processor, which fluctuates between 2.6GHz and 3.3GHz based on load. The integrated graphics solution is Intel HD Graphics 4000, which is comparable to AMD Radeon HD 6470M, allowing users to play newer games but at only lowest details settings.
