    I see at least a few people in this thread debating between the X230t and X230 regular, I have both on hand and put together this comparison video that focuses more on form factor similarities/differences than anything:

    Lenovo ThinkPad X230Tablet Vs. X230 Regular Comparison, What are the Differences? - YouTube

    Sorry if you were looking for an in depth analysis of the tablet features, others have already done that on Youtube better than I can but I think this is at least something more original and people might be curious to see.

    If I am getting the X230 with premium display and camera, I do not have the option of the Intel Wireless-N 6300 (which I would love to get) but anyway, which of the remaining options is better, Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200 (2x2 BGN) or Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 AGN?

    You can only get the 6300 if you select the 3x3 setup where you can't get the camera due to space constraints.

    Out of the two, I'd take the 6205 so you have dual band instead of single.

    I have the same one with 500gb HDD for $962 after tax.
    But anyway, don't wait. This machine is awesome!

    Yeah, the backlit keyboard, which is awesome. I have pretty much the same machine, though I went for the 3320M vs. the 3360M. It just didn't seem worth it to bump up the processor any more than that, IMO.

    Using the X230 continuously at work, and now I can tell that Lenovo decided to change the keyboard is a smart move: this keyboard is better than my old T400. The softouch when I pressed the key all the way down is a excellent. I can't get this feeling with the old keyboard. In addition, I have less typo with the spacing keyboard.
