Характеристики Lenovo THINKPAD X230

На Lenovo THINKPAD X230 установлена видеокарта, котрая имеет видеовыходы: порт VGA (D-Sub), порт Mini DisplayPort, жесткий диск HDD / SSD 128. 500 Гб, встроенный картридер для карт, SD, SDHC. Есть динамики и встроенный микрофон. Имеется встроенная web-камера, замок Kensington.

В ноутбук Lenovo THINKPAD X230 встроен сетевой адаптер LAN, модуль Wi-Fi , модуль Bluetooth устанавливается опционально, а вот 4G LTE не поддерживается, модуль WiMAX не установлен, нет поддержки GPRS, 3G не поддерживается, EDGE не поддерживается, не поддерживается HSDPA.

Connectivity

For connectivity, the X230 is littered with the same options as its older sibling as expected. In other words, the notebook offers more connections than what its small size would otherwise suggest.

Three USB ports are included just like the X220, but two of these ports are now standard USB 3.0 ports regardless of configuration. Apart from that, all physical ports can all be found exactly where they were on the 2011 model. They are easy to reach as none are on the back and most are close to the front of the side edges. Unfortunately, this also means that cables can more easily entangle the user if multiple devices are connected simultaneously. The Gigabit Ethernet port is also still oddly positioned up front instead of its more typical location further back.

A downside of having so many available ports on such a small notebook is the issue of space. For example, connecting a USB device with a thick plug can potentially block access to adjacent ports. For example, utilizing the ExpressCard slot can easily make both the USB 3.0 port and WiFi switch underneath very difficult to reach. Still, we’re appreciative that these ports are available to begin with and we definitely welcome their company despite the tight legroom. eSATA and HDMI ports are most notably missing, but users can always invest on an aftermarket DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter. Although not configured into our test unit, certain models can also be equipped with a SmartCard reader.

We tested the aging VGA-out port to confirm if the same display quality issues we found on the X220 had carried over. Fortunately, text and colors appear crisp on two separate external monitors at the tested native resolutions of 1280×1024 and 1920×1200 pixels, respectively.

Communication

Our X230 review unit only came equipped with the standard single-band (2.4GHz) 2×2 dual-stream Centrino Wireless-N 2200 adapter for WiFi, WiDi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. However, users can preconfigure the system with a WWAN PCI-e Minicard to support Gobi 3k 14.4 Mbps/HSPA or even Gobi 4k LTE under Verizon’s wireless network. Those who wish to take advantage of AT&T’s network can opt for the Ericsson HSPA+ WWAN PCI-e Minicard instead, which will work on both WCDMA/HSPA+ and GSM/EDGE networks here in the States. WiMAX users aren’t left out either as the Intel WiFi card can be upgraded to support WiMAX 6250 and its multi-band streams. In short, Lenovo has gotten all WWAN bases covered even before the end-user has a chance to add in an aftermarket PCI-e Minicard.

Fortunately, users can still swap out cards quite easily if need be by opening up keyboard and palm rest plate with a Philips screwdriver. The HDD and RAM are even more accessible and only require removing a couple of screws underneath.

Accessories

Lenovo has a history of supporting their core ThinkPad lineups with vast options and accessories in an attempt to satisfy the broadest range of business users out there. As a result, expect plenty of quality first-party extensions both by USB and docking port. Perhaps the most notable USB-powered accessory is the ThinkVision LT1421 – essentially a portable 14-inch external monitor powered solely by USB 2.0.

The X230 is backwards compatible with all docking stations supported by the X220 as both models share identical docking ports. Lenovo docking stations have one of the biggest selections of ports, including VGA, 2x DVI, 2x DisplayPort and 6x USB 2.0 from the Mini Dock Plus port alone. The Ultrabase Series 3 adds an Ultrabay for hot-swapping optical drives and secondary HDDs. Users simply looking for longer battery life can practically double runtime with a slim secondary battery similar to the secondary battery “slice” modules that certain Sony VAIO models offer. The wide selection and compatibility options make the X230 feel more easy-to-use and capable than many similarly-sized competing business notebooks.

Lenovo’s Service is standard with a warranty of up to one year, but can be extended up to five years total for $160. The usual onsite or next business day repair and accidental damage protection services are optional coverage as well and will add $90 — $100 to the warranty, at least in the United States. A “no questions asked” battery replacement plan for up to four years is available as a separate warranty plan for $139.
