Meh, however worthy of note for those not into OSX for a MBA as a competing product... Although $1500 is a PRICEY for a non-IPS panel.

They took away the keyboard on the x230 ;_;

The X230 keyboard isnt that bad. I absolutely loathe the trackpad on that though. Tries too hard to be a macbook and fails. Bumpy, not very responsive, and it has a degree of play that doesnt register as a click. Other than that though, seems like it's a nice computer. Bought 2 for work and both have the same trackpad feel. I stopped using it and went with the track point.

Holy thread necro, Batman.

BTW, the new haswell version of these X1 carbons ruined the keyboard design.

lol I was wondering if Lenovo had changed back the function keys to actual keys before realizing this was about the 1st iteration X1 Carbon thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Requesting a lock now.

I've used these. We ordered a bunch for some clients last year. Those things are sweet.
