ThinkPad X230 Wireless AC

Hi All,

 

We've recently upgraded to Wireless AC, and from reading around, I find that there may not be a way to put Wireless AC cards (I've been looking at the Intel AC-7260) in our ThinkPad X230's. Can anyone please confirm if this is true?

 

This BIOS whitelisting is a ridiculous idea. If I pay £1000+ for a laptop, I don't expect restrictions on what hardware I can use with the laptop. Sort it out Lenovo!!

 

Thanks,
Oliver

Nobody? Nothing?

 

We've got over 900 Lenovo laptops and desktops on-site, and if Lenovo are going to restrict us from doing simple things like change a wireless card, I will definitely be looking at using a different manufacturer when it comes round to refresh time. Disappointing.

Hi olivarrr, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

Yes this is frustrating if you haven't come across it before. It's not as simple a discussion as it might seem, and Lenovo is certainly not unique.

 

If you've got over 900 Lenovo laptops, you have a Lenovo rep, and that's who I would approach with your feedback.

 

Hope this helps!

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
