    I need some advice. I spilled tea on the left side of my X230T.

    I did the normal out with the battery and dry procedure. The laptop works now. Not much got in the keyboard, much spilled against the ports on the left side. The displayport is not working, but the USB and VGA is working. But I think some water got inside the fan vent and that might in the long run rust up the system board.

    Should I get a service on it just to be sure? Check for damage and maybe replace the systemboard? Will a new board fix the displayport or did it shortcut something in the CPU, since the the gpu is integrated in it? I don't now, I could just use it as long as it works and get a new one when or if it dies, but I would like to try to be preventive if possible.

    If you have accidental damage protection, you should definitely send it in.

    If you don't, they aren't going to do anything anyway, so there is no point.

    The CPU is soldered to the motherboard, so if you replace your motherboard, it should solve any issue that may be related to either.

    display port is part of the motherboard, so replacing it replaces that too....

    In Norway the service partner will. But you have to pay everything of course.
    I'm gonna send them a mail and get a price.

    Yea, they wanted $1300 for the system board alone. I'm just gonna get a new one I think.

    I wish it was a HDMI port rather than display port anyways.... :(

    i know it is the same signal and just a simple cable will work, but still ..... its a hassle.

    I hook my notebook up to more TVs than DP monitors

    Unfortunately, Lenovo is the only supplier of board at the moment, so they may charge as they please.

    I have a displayport to HDMI cable. It works quite well.

    yeah, but i always make fun of apple people for their need of dongles to hook up anything and how big of a PITA that is.

    I am sure for some the DP is better for them

    Your comment reminded me of a video I saw once, so I went out and looked for it.

    I have spent the last couple of weeks slowly reading this entire thread... Now that I've read over 1500 posts... I've decided that I really like this series from Lenovo.

    I'm going to wait out until the Haswell's are available for the X-Series... Which as far as I can tell means I'll be waiting until sometime in the Fall (Unless there's some new info thats been released).
