X230 Tablet Personnal rewview and minor problem

I have been using my X230T for about 1 month now.

I love it,

Contrary to many review, mine came in with no manufacturing default.

it sit straight, all part are solid in place.

The hand writing is awsome.

But I do found that the screen scratches to easily, even the pen after long period of use can make smal scratch. I would have love to see this laptop with the Gorilla screen.

And the camera cover is not strong enough, Mine is already cracked. Hoping I can change that eventually.

 

I have one problem that came up recently.

When I use it in tablet mode for a long period of time, the mouse pad, button and track ball all stop working.

Restart does not fix it, I know I can remove the drivers and run driver update, but this is not a solution.

I would really like to see this issue fixed, and if you need me to run test, report to try and build a case scenario I am more then willing to do so.

Re: X230 Tablet Personnal rewview and minor problem

For the screen scratches I would recommend a screen protector. I myself using on efor about 30€ (you consider myself a bit mad^^) But I also assume that its lifespan is about 3 years so the price is ok for me.

 

How did your camera cover crack? Just by the torsion the screen is exposed to? or something else?

 

Regarding your input periphals:

What do you mean by "restart does not fix it"? Do mean that they won't take up their work even after you restart the system?

I would also recommend to use a screen protector if using pen a lot. as far as I know, the outdoor version has the gorilla glass (?), it can be tougher.

Re: X230 Tablet Personnal rewview and minor problem

Thank you for the suggestion i will get a screen protector.

For the input device, the problem is with the mouse pad, track point and all mouse related button.

After I use my thinkpad as a tablet for a while (I usually use it in tablet mode) all input device mentionned above just stop working.

The only way I have found to get those input device working is to uninstall in device manager, check the remove drivers, restart and run lenovo driver update.

Right now the mouse pad, buttons, and red track point are not working.

I can still use the keyboard and touch screen.

For the camera cover, honestly I am not sure, I use the camera for the first time 3 week after purchase and notice it was blury. Then I looked and saw the cover was cracked.

If anyone know how I could replace it that would be awsome.

You could install another system like Ubuntu and try if the same problem occurs there also.
