This is a one of a kind computer for one of a kind applications. I'm a teacher / professor and for executing "flipped" classroom videos there is NOTHING on the market that produces a better final product (along with Camtasia screen capturing)
The X230 is the best convertible laptop you will find. Very quick, not too heavy...less than 4 pounds. I know that seems like a lot nowadays, but honestly, it isn't that much heavier than a tablet with a Zagg or an otter case. Very quick response time. Beautiful keyboard. Plenty of room for expansion. I got 4GB, but expandable to 16! Also, I opted for the 500GB HDD and will change later and cheaper to SSD at about 50 cents per GB. One Note makes it amazing with the tablet feature! Love it!
Rock-solid reliability. Blazing-fast performance. Clever manageability tools. We pack a lot of intelligent features into every ThinkPad® laptop and tablet so you get more out. More productivity, more cost savings, more IT headache-busting. That's why a ThinkPad investment isn't just smart. It's pure genius.
