Just bought an ex-lease Thinkpad x230 i7 16gb 180gb Intel SSD, surprised that it's original battery has less than 50 charge cycles and is still holding good charge.

It comes with a smart card reader /write.. not sure if I have any use of this card

It was a very good deal for me

An x230 i7 CPU is rare. Nice!

oh really? I'm very lucky and grateful

x220 i7 even more rare

I have an X220 i7 with bios unlock. I use a Programmer device to unlock it and disable intel ME

What is Intel ME? I thought Bios can be flashed with USB drive, no? I have an i5 x220

you're lucky to get an i7 πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
