For sale is my Lenovo X230 Thinkpad. As you can see from the pictures for it’s age this laptop is in great condition. I have owned this laptop for around 2 – 3 years now, and it has only left the house once or twice.
The laptop comes with an IPS display which increases the clarity, brightness and viewing angles. Most of the other X230s on eBay come with a TN display which is not as nice to look at. There are some small white spots on the display which I have tried to capture, but these are not very noticable (as you can see) and do not effect the use of the laptop. Comes with a backlit keyboard, and a larger capacity 9 cell battery which was purchased 2 years ago and hasn’t got much wear.
I used this laptop with dual boot, Windows on a 180 GB SATA SSD and Linux on 256GB mSata disk. Both operating systems fly on the i5 3320m with 8 GB RAM (This laptop can be upgraded to 16 GB). The laptop will be shipped with Windows 10 unless requested otherwise.
Things to note, the laptop can have issues booting when the trackpad is plugged into the motherboard, I believe it may be due to a torn ribbon cable. Luckily the cable can be found for as little as under £10, and a new trackpad with the cable for under £20 with instructions on YouTube on how to replace. I have left this unplugged and still allows use of the TrackPoint and of course a wired, USB or bluetooth mouse would also work. The fingerprint sensor has never worked since I received the laptop, the option is in the BIOS and could very well be related to the trackpad issue but personally this never bothered me. Otherwise the laptop is fully funcitonal and comes with a charger and spare Trackpoint Nubs.
There is no BIOS or supervisor passwords on the laptop.
I don’t think you’ll find a better condition X230 on eBay.
Any questions please ask!
