Look and feel If Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD think the ThinkPad design is dated, stale or uninteresting, you're reading the wrong laptop review. If you think the ThinkPad design is dated, stale or uninteresting, you're reading the wrong laptop review. The X is intended just as much for IBM loyalists as first-time buyers, and to its credit, Lenovo knows well what its customers like.

Lenovo ThinkPad X review

With the lid shut, the X looks a lot like last year's Xwhich in turn resembles years' worth of ThinkPads that came before it. That is to say, it has a boxy shape with sharp corners and a black, soft-touch lid. Where other PC makers are pushing a spartan sort of look, Lenovo is still studding its laptops with physical mute, volume and mic controls, as well as a hotkey for launching the bundled ThinkVantage suite. And, like the X that came before it, the X has a latch-less lid, Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD a little overbite that fits securely over the front lip. All told, these touches add up to a design that's not sexy, per se, but timeless. While the X follows the same design principles as its predecessor, we'd be remiss if we didn't point out that it's both thinner and lighter: In comparison, the X weighs 3.

As we continue our tour around the laptop, you'll see that although the chassis is thinner, Lenovo still managed to squeeze in Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD few new ports.

The left edge is home to two USB 3. Meanwhile, the right side houses a Kensington lock slot, 4-in-1 memory card reader, a powered USB 2. There's Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD a Smart Card reader option. Inside, Lenovo's "Airbag Protection" technology guards the drive in the event of drops. Where's the AC port, you ask?


It's tucked onto the back edge, potentially allowing for some more discrete cable management. Lastly, there's still a Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD reader sitting to the right of the touchpad. Keyboard and trackpad We can't promise that ThinkPad fans set in their ways will take kindly to this new keyboard.

Although the X looks like the X at first blush, you only need to lift the lid to realize this upgrade is Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD than just a processor refresh. With this generation, Lenovo's added some subtle backlighting, and moved from a classic, seven-row keyboard layout to a six-row, island-style arrangement. Interestingly, this is just the second ThinkPad after last year's X1 to get the chiclet treatment. Of course, the company's been experimenting with similar keyboards on its Edge lineup for years, though we're told the keys here are slightly different from even those models. Specifically, the keys each have 30 percent more surface area on top than the old-school keys on the X, and the spacing is five times greater. In any case, the keys have a so-called Smile shape, with a curved lower edge and slightly indented surface for cradling the fingertips. To turn the backlighting on and off, there's now a control built into the left end of the space bar, which only Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD if you also hold down the Fn button.

Last but not least, Lenovo claims to have improved both the tactile and sound feedback. Truth be told, we never had a problem with the sound or forcefulness of previous ThinkPad keyboards, but this one is certainly as sturdy as promised. The entire panel stays infallibly rigid, even under the weight of furious typing.

Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD if you're the kind of person who equates keyboard noise with productivity or who simply gets nostalgic for tactile thingswe think you'll find the low-pitched clack quite reassuring. Even so, we can't promise that ThinkPad fans set in their ways will take kindly to this new keyboard. If you review laptops for a living, like yours truly, you might appreciate the tactility of these keys, especially compared to the flat, flimsy keyboards you'll find on most other ultraportables on the market. But when we handed the X to Tim Stevens a ThinkPad fanboy in his own righthe deemed the keys stiff and too widely spaced compared to his trusty Ts. This is the rare case where a "new and improved" keyboard could be a pro or a con, depending on your tastes.

As you'd expect -- this being a ThinkPad and all -- you've got a variety of different navigation options at your fingertips, including a touchpad with buttons, as well as that signature red pointing stick. So far as we can tell, Lenovo hasn't strayed from its tried-and-true pointer, which is to say it has a flat top, wide enough to accommodate most digits. As ever, the rubbery material and series of raised dots make it unlikely that your finger will unexpectedly slide off. To be sure, there's a bit of a learning curve for ThinkPad converts, but once you find your bearings you'll enjoy some exceptionally controlled cursor navigation -- arguably even more precise than what you'll experience if you use the touchpad.

In case you're more of a touchpad person, the main obstacle you'll encounter here are the small dimensions. There's not nearly enough room to comfortably pinch to zoom, though the pad is certainly capable of this.

Two-finger scrolls aren't flawless, but they're still smoother than what most other Windows PCs have to offer. Otherwise, the pad works as promised, and without fuss: Display and sound The IPS panel bodes well for "Up in the Air" types who plan on working through long flights, and need to stay productive even when the guy in Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD of them leans back in his seat. Here's something Lenovo had no reason to change.

And it's not just that it's a matte panel, though that'll certainly help fight glare from harsh overhead lights in the office; the IPS panel also ensures that colors don't wash out as you adjust the screen angle. Even when we dipped the screen forward or pushed it back, we were able to continue reading websites and other pages densely packed with text. It even lies flat, though we're not sure why you'd want to work that way this isn't the touch-enabled XTafter all. In any case, this all bodes well for "Up in the Air" types who plan on working through long flights, and Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD to stay productive even when the guy in front of them leans back in Lenovo ThinkPad X230 DVD seat. If we have one complaint it's that the LCD matrix is very prominent, and is difficult to un-see once you notice it.
