Geek deals 10 off Lenovo ThinkPad X230 ultraportable laptop

first_imgThe term “ultraportable” is thrown around a lot these days. The selection of small, light laptops has grown exponentially, especially over the past couple years, but there is not one common standard for ultraportable laptops.Screen sizes range from 11 inches all the way up to 14 inches in some cases, both normal and low voltage processors can be found, and it’s a mix of laptops that do or do not have an optical drive.In the more traditional sense of an ultraportable, you’ll typically only see 11-12 inch models that lack an optical drive (known as a one-spindle system). From there you do see more of a split between full-featured models with powerful processors and portability-focused ones that lack some features and make do with low-voltage chips.Lenovo’s ThinkPad X Series has straddled both of those lines and experimented with a few different screen sizes, but the bread and butter has always been the mainstream 12 inch lineup. The latest iteration is the ThinkPad X230, a 12.5 inch widescreen model that may not measure up to Ultrabook standards, but also doesn’t compromise.The X230 measures in at 0.75-1.05 inches thin and 2.96 lb with the 4-cell battery. While that may not sound impressive in the day and age of the MacBook Air and its clones, it is rather impressive when you consider the X230’s capabilities. You can get up to a Core i7 processor and 16GB RAM. It has a 4-in-1 card reader, three USB ports (two are 3.0 standard), VGA and DisplayPort outputs, and built-in Ethernet. You can even upgrade the display to an IPS screen for an additional $50, a must-have in my book.This brand new model debuted just a few weeks ago and we’ve got a rare 10% coupon available for it. That brings the starting price down to just $854.10 for a Core i3 model or you can step up to a Core i5 for just $881.10.Visit LogicBuy for the Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Ultraportable Laptop deal or browse more Lenovo deals & couponslast_img
