@Lead was kind enough to point out the Ultrabase as an option for docking the X230. I was using an extra 433830U mini-dock I bought for my W520.
I suppose the new 433815U with USB 3.0 might be a good choice with the X230.
I'm able to drive two external monitors off the mini-dock. It appears to me that the Ultrabase has but one Displayport connector.
Does anyone have a recommendation of one over the other (Ultrabase vs. mini-dock)?

I have a 4 month old X230T, i7 running Windows 7. To get dual monitors I purchased the Lenovo 3.0 Dock, Model DU9019D1. Afteer I loaded the supplied drivers from the included CD I got the Blue Screen of Death. The only way out was a restore point I had manually created prior to loading those drivers. Lenovo Tech Support in Atlanta was unable to assist with this issue so I am returning the Dock and will purchase it again only AFTER Lenovo:
1. On the supplied CD changes the software so a restore point is AUTOMATICALLY created before the driver load starts; and
2. Makes the drivers compatible with the X230T.
This is a request to Lenovo, and a warning to others about the Lenove 3.0 Dock.
