Order Gobi 4000 for X230T

2012-09-01, 3:33 AM

HI, 

 

Why Gobi 4000 is not available online for X230T while it can be configured for X230? Is there anyway to order Gobi 4000 instead of Gobi 3000 when I configure a new X230T on lenovo website? Thanks.

Hey Modfet,

 

Sry but no the only option you have from ordering on Lenovo.com is the Gobi 3000 for X230T. Its from the difference between a tablet laptop and laptop.

 

Best Regards,

 

Hiro

Thanks. If I could get a Gobi 4000 from the market, would it work with X230T? thanks.

The X230 Tablets are not designed for the 4G card, so if you can get the card to work, the performance would be poor at best. You would be better off getting a USB 4G solution.

LANOgre, let me ask you what your statement about x230t and 4g card (mc7700/7750, for example) is based on? Especially about performance. Did you test that devices combination yourself?

Maybe he means the problem of detection of non-Lenovo sold mobile broadband cards... Two days ago i read in a post from a guy who buyed a broadband card from some dealer that it won't work with its system. One of the gurus then told him, that he has to purchase the card from lenovo or otherwise it won't work... It's quite a pain in the ass. But as long as the Gobi4000 won't be offered by lenovo you won't be able to use it...

Well the Gobi 4000 is in the X230 Tablet's WWAN driver section - twice - so it seems unlikely it wouldn't work.

I tried to put the lenovo Gobi 4000 (from another X230 machine) to X230T, it won't work, as the BIOS reported an unsuported device.

Have they lifted the BIOS restriction yet on the x230T for the Gobi 4000? I hate to think I'll be stuck without LTE forever.
