Feedback on the Lenovo ThinkPad X230t

Asked by A. Denton

Hello devs and testers,

I'd like to make a serious statement with regards to the article "Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad X230" ([L1]).

That hardware contains the Intel Ivy bridge chipset and caused my colleagues and me several headaches. Until Kernel 3.2.0-43 arrived the system occasionally froze. Only LES (EnablementStack) with Kernel 3.5.0-xx seemed to have cured this with the advent of recent releases. I consider Lenovo X230 to be quite stable since the end of May 2013.

However I strongly suggest to have someone to look into this again since docking, I/O device detection as well as suspend and hibernation are still troublesome with LTS-kernel 3.2.0. I'd also like to suggest that someone looks into Lenovo Thinkpad T430. I guess a re-test with LES raring and kernel 3.8.0 should be considered.

Thanks for your feedback, but I'm curious which system you are talking about?
X230 or X230t? The link you provided is for X230t, not X230 you mentioned here.
They're certified with different stock Ubuntu images.

Unfortunately I cannot provide any information since I do not work for the organization anymore which had these systems.
