1366x768 resolution "just fine" for 13"? It's laughable. Higher resolutions mean smoother fonts, which are more readable even at smaller sizes. The (slightly excessive) 3200x1800 pixel screen available on the likes of the Yoga Pro 2 and some of Samsung's ultraportables easily allows two pages of text side-by-side with very comfortable fonts. This 1366x768 screen just barely fits one page, with less smooth fonts, on roughly the same physical area. That aside, the X230 is a nice machine.

The touchpad differs greatly from other ThinkPads.  Going from a T400 to an X230 was a huge disappointment.  Have found the pointer to be jumpy and difficult to control, leaving me to abandon the touchpad completely and use a wireless mouse.  Utter fail.

The article suggests that the touchpad works well. However, the x230 holds the the crappiest touchpad I have ever seen. Slow to respond and its resolution is far worse than on my Lenovo s10-2 netbook. I bought this laptop, and took only one week for the trackpoint to come loose (been replaced). The Intel 520 series SSD seems to have firmware issues that causes ATA timeout and stalled system as a result. The replaced SSD (same firwmare version) still has this issue.  Now I use it with a Samsung 840 series SSD, rock stable.

I do not recommend this laptop to anyone, the good days of IBM ThinkPads are gone now.

Why you do not test all the notebooks with the same room Temperature?
I think that you mislead!

...the manufacturer has managed to shave off a third of an inch from the 34.6mm (1.36 inches) rear end of the previous model to just 26.6mm (1.05 inches)...
This information is from Lenovo Tabook or it is real measurement. When I looking at the pictures X220 and X230 they looks like there are no difference in thickness.

Hello,

They are official measurements from Lenovo. You can find the necessary data for comparison in the following PDFs:

Thank you for such a detailed review.  I have now read about ten reviews of the X230, and this one is by far the best.

I realized that I have just used my old T61p to play the whole of Mass Effect 2. The Trackpoint is by far the best feature of the ThinkPad series.
 
The x230 looks very impressive, but I still can't wait for fanless laptops.

Does the display frame still bend in sunlight ?

@Axel
Unfortunately, attempting to install Intel RST was unsuccessful on the reviewed X230. The installation returns a "does not meet minimum requirements" error message despite the QM77 chipset being advertised as compatible with the Intel software.

Lenovo will offer 500GB HDD as well as 256GB SSD and 32GB mSATA configurations when this notebook launches later this month. A higher capacity aftermarket HDD/SSD should install without problems. If going the SSD route and speed is a concern, the 6gb/s interface of the X230 would benefit from a SATA III drive.

Can we use an mSata drive + Intel RST to accelerate the mechanical hard drive? What is the maximum capacity aftermarket hard drive we can use? 320 GB is a bad joke these days.
