Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Tablet - Some Images And Details
According to Engadget the X230T will have "Dolby Advanced Audio, face tracking technology, a mini-DisplayPort and a pair of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports".
Visually the X230T is very similar to the X220T. The most noticeable change is the keyboard, which may be backlit (confirmed by Notebook Review image). The X220T had a great keyboard, although somewhat outdated in the "looks" department.

Another observation is that there may be a "slim" and an "extended" battery. The extended one can be used as a carrying handle, and the "slim" one is flushed with the system. The X220T had battery life of about 5 hours, which is also similar to the Samsung Series 7 Slate's.
Internally we can expect Intel Ivy Bridge CPU, so it should be faster in the CPU and GPU capabilities. I doubt that there will be a "discrete" graphics version (GPU has not been confirmed). The X220T had impressive graphics capabilities with it's integrated graphics, the X230T should be even more impressive.
Hopefully the X230T retains the docking station capabilities, improves battery life and the digitizer precision (which sometimes was terrible in the X220T). The screen size is 12.5 inches, but we still do not know the resolution. (the X220T had 1366x768)
Lenovo will eventually come out with all the details, the cool thing is that the launch will be in June 2012, and the price will start at about $1,479. The timing is sooner than I expected!
The X230T may become my primary PC. After all, it is a laptop, a tablet, and a full on PC (if docking is possible). Once I have enough saved, I'll order it and begin creating X230T posts and videos. Enjoy the images, and if you feel like helping me acquire this tablet you can donate. (because it takes money to produce posts)
