None that I've found, theyre so thin that it hurts my fingers. Just got an X230 today for $220 amerifatdollars. It was lighter than expected and the keyboard is pretty amazing. Not as good as the old Thinkpads, but its lightyears ahead of ultrabook keyboards.

Mine is a little bit better than that and this is kinda the ultra version:

My laptop has a hybrid storage, so that I have like 125 GB of SSD storage and 375 GB of normal storage. My laptop boots in like 5 seconds and the laptop also has a touchscreen. Battery life is okay for that power and speed. Kinda looks like a MacBook Pro, but is cheaper and better.

I don't see the point of spending more than $500 on a laptop.

Yeah sure I could fork out $1,000 for an ultrabook and yeah it'll probably be fast and all.... but at the end of the day battery technology is still the worst no matter what. After a year the battery turns to absolute shit and the replacement prices are unbelievably high.

People are just better off buying a $400 laptop, it'll end up lasting 3 years if you nurture it carefully. Most people just need their Facebook and porn.

Lets assume i actually crack up one of the x230's i have around. Lets say i manage to find that one chip.

If i remove it, is there any other fallout from that aside from amt and or vpro features gone?

Also, only because something reports an error does not mean it isnt there anymore...

Do it and report back.
I won't spoonfeed you. If you're autistic enough to remove AMT which isn't even used, try and do that.
I won't make a tutorial.

Too late, I don't think I'm going back. I already switched to a rMBP and the premium feel blows the t420 out of the water in my opinion. If Lenovo wants my money they're going to have to make the T or W series not a piece of shit. Because I'm not going to spend a couple grand on anything they have out at the moment. Have you tried the t440/t440s? Or the W series now with a number pad? It looks and feels horrendous . I also doubt they're going to change the keyboard. I've tested the t530 and x230 on various occasions and the keyboard just feels mushy and strange, just like the trackpad on the t440 series. They need to go back to the IBM thinkpad roots. And looking at Lenovos track record it seems unlikely.

Same, I have a 128 ipad that I use as a laptop for all of my mobile needs. I have a desktop at home when I need to do CAD work

Best of both worlds

I just bought 2 T7s and they work great.
Are you trying to play games on your laptop?

Anyone have a surface pro 3?

Does the temperature stay manageable or does it get pretty hot? I'd like to use it in bed, but I usually end up using my android tablet since it doesn't get hot as fuck like my current laptop.
