I see you wrote another thread for X230T etc
I did? I don't remember. Basically I'm wondering if I should ge the X220T now or wait for the X230T. If I wait for the X230T, I might as wait until Lenovo clears it of all the bugs discovered by end users who buy the first production run of X230T's.
still best suggestion for you would be to get a USED T61
I understand the logic of that, but wouldn't a USED T61 or anything still have internal parts that are also used? It's like buying a car. Do I buy a used car that I might have to nickel and dime, or buy brand new with manufacturer's warranty? I'm concerned that if I go the used route, that the motherboard or something vital will die on it and then I'm back at square one. I'm planning brand new, but I'm garaging the T60 and I'll do what I can to get her up and running like old times. Yeah, I'll fix her upon on the weekends.
Even if you buy the new new T230T - you would never get full benefit from it ( apart from new shiney and new laptop smell ! lol) ... Seems you not a pwoer user.
That's right, I'm not a power user, but I'm a heavy user and who knows? I might be a power user in the near future.
It probably comes down to whether you're going to miffed about the dropping of keys and moving around of function keys. If you use a lot of those, the new keyboard will probably will be a disappointment, but the actual typing is quite good in my opinion.
I learning typing on an electric typewriter. I'm accustomed to the feel of the classic TP keyboard, been using the T60 since 2006? I don't know how a backlit keyboard is going to help me, since I can type by feel. Keyboard aside, sure the X230 has improved processor, ram, hard drive upgrades, but as Mike pointed out, I'm not a power user (yet) so if I get a X220T and I'm not tapping into it's full potential, then the X230T, has more potential than the X220T, which would mean more wasted potential.
Does anyone recommend getting a X220 or X230 with the SSD or an HHD? I'm concerned how much memory Windows 7 (or
uses. I could get crazy and ask about sMATA, but that might be a bit out of my league for the moment. Almost forgot, if you upgrade the ram on a new machine, does that void the Lenovo warranty?
That's for all the input!
