Lenovo ThinkPad X230i NZA2DUK Review posted on
12.5 inch Portable Notebook
If you need brushed aluminum, thumping bass, or a 1080p display, look elsewhere. The ThinkPad is all about getting stuff done without compromising performance or comfort, and there aren't many workhorses out there that can do it better.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X230 pairs a new backlit keyboard with a fast third-generation Core processor and long-lasting batteries, making it a very good business ultraportable.

PC Advisor  
ThinkPads have always been more than the sum of their parts, and the X230 is no exception. IT departments and fans will love the laptop and the vast array of support and warranty options that come with it. There's nothing here to disturb the continuity of the X line. For everyone else, this machine deserves some tire-kicking, especially with regard to the addictive keyboard. But its profile and appearance may not meet modern expectations.
