X220T Windows 8 Professional upgrade possible?

2013-12-10, 23:20 PM

Hello,

 

My x220T (Tablet) is current running on Windows 7 Professional. I was wondering if this device has all the drivers should I upgrade to Windows 8 Professional? Thanks for help in advance.

Welcome to the forum!

 

X220T does not meet all the MS requirements for W8.

 

With that said, the OS will run on it but you may experience various glitches and the overall user experience is likely to be less satisfactory than W7 in my opinion.

Cheers,

George

Thanks George, that's what I thought too. Too sad Lenovo lags getting all the drivers ready for Win8 :(

I was wondering if it is now possible for W8 to work on the X220T. It has been a while now. Will the updated drivers help W8 run on the laptop?

No.

 

The hardware was simply not designed with W8 in mind, and there's absolutely nothing that the updated drivers will do in this respect.

 

Even X230T is not considered a W8-compliant machine.

Cheers,

I think it runs fine.

Mine is x230T running W8.1. I love it!

The only problem is no threshold charging in power management.
