You should get an X230, since you are using already a T430. The keyboard layout and design are the same. Anything before X230, you will find different experience in both of those laptops. And believe me the X230, T430 and W530 models are the last best models of Thinkpad design, upgradability and durability.


The same upgradability and design you will find in P50, P51 and P52 workstations (If you are looking for some latest models). The current P53 workstations also not having upgradable battery.


I purchased an used X230 for all my travel purpose. You can upgrade it to 16GB/32GB RAM (YES, Core i5 3320M, supports 32GB RAM). If you can get an core i7 version of X230, its well and good. Now, for me its a powerful laptop on the go. I have P50 at home for all my intensive task.


Hopes this helps in buying your next laptop.
