Well I just got the x230t today and the front right corner is elevated off the desk when I put the 6-cell battery in. It seems flush when the battery is out though. I'm not sure if this means the device is warped, or the device is fine and something is wrong with the battery.
I called support and they are sending me a new battery. I asked if I could exchange the 6 cell for the 3 cell in case the new battery still doesn't work, but they said they can only replace what came with the machine.
Hopefully the new battery fixes this, however I am leaning towards getting the 3-cell just becasue the build quality on the 6-cell looks so cheap.
I'll report here what happens when I get the battery, but that won't be until after July 2nd.

I was looking into getting the 3-cell too (or possibly even the slice), and the salesman said it won't be available for re-sale for a month or so, if it's anything like the X220t. Though maybe third parties are already selling them?

you say that you are going to have you US headquarters take a look at it...but that still means that those of us who have already bought the x230 tablet are out of luck right?
Or would this be considered "lenovo error" and be eligible for return without the 15% restocking fee?

I sent my laptop to their headquarters (at the request of a community manager who reached out to me here), and I'll update the thread when I hear what they say. I imagine if they recognize a manufacturing defect, they'll let anyone with that defect return the laptop without the 15% fee. (And if they don't, you should firmly require it.)

Aside the issues... I saw this article:
11.6 inches with a Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7-3920XM processor still with room for an Nvidia dedicated graphics???
Really Lenovo... I DO HOPE SO that you guys have a good excuse for not anouncing yet a model with such options. It won't kill the other products if boost their specs too.

Why should they do something like that? ThinkPads aren´t Consumer-Notebooks. They are not made for gaming and, other than that pice of crap in your link, they should burn you or be as loud as a plane. Hope Lenovo will never do such a madness.

Guys, if possible, may I kindly ask to keep this thread as well on-topic as possible. I'm interested in hearing about the build quality, and feature requests are a little bit out of that scope.
