Has Lenovo hit a home run? Or is the backlash against the new keyboard design really warranted?   When it was revealed back in 2008, the Lenovo ThinkPad X200 series was striving to offer the same high-quality ThinkPad feel and experience for the first time in an extremely small but portable 12-inch size. The original X200, however, lacked numerous built-in connectivity options and may have potentially turned off the same business users that it was attempting to attract. Fast forward to today and the ThinkPad X200 series has now become the de facto notebook for business users alike looking for a 12-inch secondary or even primary notebook. The launch of the ThinkPad X220 last April was highly lauded by reviewers as worthy of the ThinkPad name despite the minute size. In our last review, we particularly praised the X220 for its sturdy case, low noise, long battery life and for having one the most impressive displays for its size class. The ThinkPad X230 updates the lineup not with brand new looks, but with the new Precision Keyboard layout and the all-important Ivy Bridge chipset under the hood. Otherwise, exterior qualities remain largely the same as last year’s model. Although seemingly trivial at first glance, these two changes directly affect the user experience and can actually make the X230 feel like a different beast compared to the X220 despite their similarities. In this review, we investigate the changes both inside and out and give our final thoughts on the rather controversial keyboard update. Case Soft-textured lid Opened to maximum angle Lenovo decided to take the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach to the design of the X230. Indeed, the 2012 model is every bit as similar to the 2011 model at first glance, but 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) in the latest offering. The thickness of the front edge remains at 19mm, meaning that users will be getting the same resistant chassis but in a sleeker and somewhat lighter (1.34kg vs. 1.54kg) package. It’s still stocky to be sure, and users will still need both hands to open the lid, but the classic ThinkPad professionalism and appearance are unmistakably preserved. It’s true that Ultrabooks have since risen into the scene and now competes with the X230 to some extent. The ThinkPad X220 faced no such problems during its launch, but we can say with confidence that although the Intel ultrathins are much thinner, lighter and more stylish than the conservatively built ThinkPad, the construction of the latter is in a class of its own and even maintains around the same level of portability. The magnesium alloy chassis is thick, the dual hinges are firm with little to no vibration and both the case and lid experience little to no side-to-side twisting or creaks. But since the all-matte design has remained essentially unchanged, a few issues we found on the previous model have yet to be amended. Aside from the notebook being a complete fingerprint magnet, the left palm rest is still noticeably more susceptible to finger depressions due to the hollow ExpressCard slot immediately underneath and the textured outer lid sinks slightly when pressure is applied. Fortunately, the cheap-feeling ThinkVantage bar of the X220 is now a part of the keyboard for better stability and no wobbling issues. As for the warping display border, we experienced no such issues when using the notebook outdoors under 80 degrees F (27 C) weather. For a full walkthrough of the quality of the case, see our review on the previous X220. But in short, you’d be hard pressed to find a consumer-oriented 12-inch notebook with similar construction quality and connectivity options. It’s worth noting that the new Samsung Series 4 directly challenges the ThinkPad in terms of exterior build and longevity, but users who go for the latter option will give up certain important performance advantages that the X230 offers. Connectivity For connectivity, the X230 is littered with the same options as its older siblingas expected. In other words, t
