Update on X230T build quality? Buy or Don't?

2013-07-19, 17:33 PM

Hey,

 

I am considering buying an X230T. But I am not sure if I should. Everything I have read about the X230T in the forums have been kind of discouraging.

 

Especially where the function keys scratch the screen when it is closed. Has there been an update on this?

 

Thanks

Solved! See the solution

I have had my X230T for about 8 months with no build issues.

As for keys scratching the screen, I read posts about that before
I got my X230T so I got this :

http://www.radtech.us/products/notebookscreensavrz

Its a microfiber cloth that comes in sizes to match any
notebook screen that goes between the keyboard and
the screen when a notebook is folded and prevents
the keys or anything else scratching the screen or transfer
of dirt/oil from keys to screen and also acts as a cleaning
cloth if you need to clean the screen.

 

This is especially important if you get the indoor screen (Multitouch)

option which does NOT have gorilla glass but allows

finger touch without stylus like I have. The indoor screen

is apparantly much more prone to scratches.

 

If you get the Multitouch screen keep those

fingernails short .. :smileylol:
