It is, I got one with 16 Ram and SSD

me 2! Got it for around 100€ which isn’t all that cheap, and the ssd and ram are parts that didn’t came with my machine! I upgraded the wifi and bluetooth as well to 300mbps wifi 2x2 mimo and bluetooth 4.0

superb

Not sure what expensive means. I got mine without SSD for $35, plus a $25 256gb ssd and it has been a good little machine. The floppy top edge on the screen where the antennas are is a poor design but other than that it is great for casual computing. Lovely keyboard.

yes is the last model with the classic thinkpad keyboard, that’s why i got this one! The trackpad is awefull but i use only the trackpoint

I picked up one recently for $50, i5 8gb 128gb SSD. I upgraded to 16gb RAM.. I like this keyboard more than my x230 i7

i have the same one, i5, but came with 4gb of single channel ram and a 320gb hdd for 100€, i got a battery for it, and i put in wifi 300mbps 2x2 mimo, bluetooth 4, 16gb of ram and 256gb ssd

can you share which wifi card model? Big improvement?

i want one like this with a 1440x900 screen

that’s my next upgrade, but i want to go all out with a full hd ips display panel, it is possible to put in a 1920x1200 panel in this model, but some modding is needed

I have 2 unit X220 with i7 2620M and i7 2640M. It serves me well as a laptop for back office task.
