Default Just ordered a new Thinkpad x230

Needed a new notebook to BS on the internet and for traveling with. So I ended up with an IBM x230 and got a decent deal via the Barnes and Noble site. Here's what it has.

Intel Core i5-3210M Processor (3M Cache, up to 3.10 GHz)
Operating System Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)
Operating System Language Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - English
Display Type 12.5" Premium HD (1366x768) LED Backlit Display, Mobile Broadband Ready, 3x3 Antenna
System Graphics Intel HD 4000 Graphics in Intel Core i5-3210M Processor
Total Memory 4 GB DDR3 - 1600MHz (1 DIMM)
Keyboard Keyboard Backlit - US English
Fingerprint Reader UltrNav with FingerPrint Reader
Hard Drive 320GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm
Battery 9 Cell ThinkPad Battery X44++
Power Cord 65W AC Adapter - US (2pin)
Bluetooth Bluetooth 4.0 with Antenna
Integrated WiFi Wireless LAN Adapters Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN
Integrated Mobile Broadband Integrated Mobile Broadband (Sierra Wireless MC8355 - Gobi 3000 (TM))
Selectable SIM SIM Card for US AT&T

$767.07

Going to either hit up Newegg or MicroCenter later today for an SSD and 8GB of RAM.

I kind of ordered this on a whim, but the reviews seemed pretty positive. Does anyone have any good experience with this line (or the X220)?

i did much the same, but i stepped it up to a 3320m for the hardware virtualization support. I also picked up the 4 year onsite next business day warranty.

thought it kind of funny that it was shipped directly from shanghai china to my door. i haven't gotten a chance to play around with it, but i opened it up and looked at it.. the overall size is awesome.

Just the fact that you got the Centrino Ultimate is a winner. Pick up some 16Gb so-dimms on ebay and ditch the spinner with an ssd and you'll be golden.
