ARE THERE ANY FLAWS IN i5 X220's?

2011-07-13, 14:45 PM

I'm thinking about an i5 X220 today before the 10% off sale ends.  

 

Are all i5 versions free of all flaws currently being discussed on this forum ?  

Asking it another way, what specific flaws are being seen in i5 X220s?

 

Thanks!

I can't say there are no lacks in any i5 based x220s. But I can confirm my laptop (i5, ips, ssd, fpr) works perfectly except of some bug with Gobi 2000. For that issue I'm waiting new BIOS.
Unfortunately there is a chance that wwan ready i5 laptops have the trouble with mSATA.

None of the issues discussed on the forum seem to be related to i5 vs i7 processors. Fan and throttling issues have been reported for both i5 and i7. You need to dig into the threads to look for them. Of course there are other issues completely unrelated to the processor such as screen ghosting and mSATA SSD.

Yep. I got two i5 x220's, both of which had the IPS ghosting issue and the fan noise issue. I've returned them and purchased an x200s, as it doesn't seem like lenovo is addressing the issues well at all.

Thanks to all, you confirm my impressions.  No new X220 for me until Lenovio can ship fully functional machines. Who knows what competitors will make available in the interim.  What a sad decline of a once great product.

Thanks for the useful info. I was looking for info on x220 i5 vs. i7. Too bad there seem to be problems. The 11.6" MBA is just not doing it for me and I find myself going back to my old x61t ....
