If x230 is like all around small laptop. What model should be the same at 14"+ screen size?. At least with 1080p. I was thinking about T490...

Is an x230 an ultrabook? I’d say an x1 carbon probably fits what you are looking for

fixed😄. I was thinking about screen size only. I like the Carbon series.

okay in that case I would say the T430 is obviously the closest to the X230 and CAN have a 1080p screen but it requires a converter. The T440p would also be close and has an option for a native 1080p display. It can also have quad core cpu - user accessible ram, but it doesn't have the express card slot that the 30 series had.

Maybe T490s is more like an Ultrabook.

I love my T470s. Recently gave it a new lease of life with new battery and ssd. Borderline Ultrabook, but fairly thin and light.

I think of the x230 as just a 'small laptop', not an ultrabook. It's more like a smaller version of the t430, which I wouldn't call an ultrabook either.

fixed.

Agreed. I really like the power bridge system of having 2 batteries. T480 was the last that offered this feature. Also I think the first to offer all 4-core cpu options.
