    Because they stick out the bottom? I for one really, really hate batteries that stick out the bottom, especially that x220t/x230t 6-Cell.

    According to Lenovo the small battery has 4 cells (ThinkPad Battery 44) and only 29Whr - which I find strange compared to the 66Whr of the 6 cells.

    Commander Wolf already gave the same reasons why I don't like the bigger batteries. In addition theses batteries make the notebook higher in the back which I also dislike.

    Because "cell count" and actual capacity are only linearly correlated when the cells are the same size, and I'm pretty sure that the small battery is using different cells than the two larger ones. One more reason why "cell-count" is a useless measure of anything.

    Check the actual WHr capacity. Recalibrate it if you want. If you're getting the rated 56WHr (or whatever it is), then there shouldn't be any issue with the battery.

    Under high performance mode with lot of disk access then 3 hours is right. Under normal usage like office, net, then 5 to 6 hours is more typical.

    just got a x230t, how do i know if i have IPS screen? or all x230t has IPS screen?'
    the screen looks foggy, and not even as good as my old x220 non-ips screen.
    BTW, the screen is so yellowish, i had to calibrate the display to make white color white.

    How's windows 8 perform on X230 so far?
    I haven't followed this thread for a while and too lazy to read it again.
    Thank you.

    No problems with Windows 8 here. Some of the Thinkvantage applications don't work but beside that it is fast and stable. It's more a matter of taste if you like the metro UI start menu or not.
