    Anyone who can test out a 9mm ssd in the x230 tablet and tell me if it works? I'll PayPal you 5 bucks for your trouble. Please, I'm getting desperate here :-(

    I just need to know if the 9mm drive goes in easily without the rubber bumpers or the metal carriage.

    At least on the 220, you can't use a 9.5mm drive without some modding (I've verified this myself and there's a thread somewhere). Given that the 230 chassis is nearly identical, I see no reason why it should not be the same.

    I just noticed that my "B" key is at least 1/3 lower than the rest of the keys. Just wondering if this is normal.

    I think he's asking specifically for the 9mm (non standard) height ones. The standard is 9.5mm, and slim ones are 7mm. I read that Samsung 870 is even a little slimmer than 7mm, somewhere around 6.5mm which should be fine.

    Personally I wouldn't use a 9mm height ssd even if you can somehow fit it in without the rubber guide rails. Samsung 256gb ssds are sold for very low these days, and 128gb one can be often found for $90 when on sale.

    Thanks. I assume it's designed that way so you can access the trackpoint easily?

    Does anyone else have a problem with at least one side of the screen after calibration? I always have the edge of one side being too much off while compared to the rest of the screen. Is it because I calibrated it wrong?

    I notice it while using Onenote or Photoshop the most since the cursor shifts away from where it should be pointing.

    No you can't.
    With an SSD, you can remove the cover (void warranty) to fit it the HDD cage.

    those people in the UK that might still be waiting for the X230T, it went live on the Lenovo.co.uk website yesterday. however there is hardly any money off it, the "standard" spec with:

    i5 3320
    4GB
    500GB 7.2k
    2x2 MultiTouch
    WWAN
    Backlit Keyboard
    3 year onsite warranty

    is coming out at just over £1,610 incVAT - yet I paid £1,340 for it via Hemini about 2 weeks ago and got next day delivery. Lenovo need to build it and ship from China - eta 2 weeks.

    So if you are looking for one in the UK, either negotiage a BIG discount from Lenovo or look elsewhere at places such as Hemini.

    Cheers
