I too am standing by for this bios update to support eGPU functionality. On a related tangent, what exactly are we dealing with here in terms of the speed of the expresscard slot. I'm reading a bunch of different x1 1.0/opt, etc and have not seen any direct comment on what speeds the expresscard slot is capable of working at. I've seen the release notes of expresscard 2.0 in 2009 and I can only hope and assume this has been implemented with the new x230t.
I wish they would annouce their plans to release new itterations of laptop models... With thunderbolt and other technologies coming out, it would be nice to know if there is another update for the x230 series or if there will be another tablet pc slated to release.

No longer standing by, I purchased my X230T. I'm excited to get it here in a couple weeks and I look forward to the work the Lenovo Bios guys are putting into this fix. THANKS

My Configuration is no secret so here we go:
4 GB RAM
500GB HDD + 128 GB Msata
And for GPU Power a Nvidia GTX 560 with a PE4L 2.1b. The GPU is running fine and witch PCI Express 2.0 Speed.
This picture show PCI Express 1.1 because the eGPU is ideling on the Desktop bus as soon as I start a 3D Game it changes to PCI Express 2.0
