I know the RAM can’t be upgraded, but can the HDD? If yes, to what capacity?

I'm late in the game here, but what did you end up buying, and from where? I'm stuck in Costa Rica with a newly damaged screen on my 3 year old Dell and have to get something before or by the time I get back to Ottawa. Thanks
I think She bought a Lenovo Ideapad from Costco,It's not a bad deal but I prefer to get a Thinkpad.

Got a t430 recently with i7, 8gb ram, 256 SSD for $300, Think this is worth upgrading to? Going to use it for school mainly docked at home.

The $500 doesn't include taxes and shipping right?

Not at all,it's not available online anymore,possibly in store.

For me I don't like the build of ideapads,however our preferences and needs vary.

Thinking about grabbing one, but does anyone know if you can swap the Wireless NIC inside of these or do you have to get a whitelisted BIOS?

Not a gamer at all (I'm 58) simply need a reliable device that i can stream from, store personal files and that's about it. Would the ideapad have been overkill?

Once again, thanks! Ideas?

dude, this thread is about 3rd gen X1, 5th gen CPU...huge difference!
And let's not forget about the 1440 IPS, multitouch screen. You're not going to find a lot of guys flipping those on CL/KJ.

Is it worth an extra $150 for a 4th gen with i7 processor and 256GB drive?

You have to factor in that this model has a FHD screen versus 1440 IPS multitouch.

that one is sold out at costco, but yup, 8th gen i7 for what you described is for sure overkill.

Can anyone confirm ?
I thought someone said the HD is proprietary or soldered onto the MB and can not be upgraded ?
128 is just too small.

If anyone has done an upgrade what did you go with ?
ie: M.2 PCIe ( links pls )
Thanks in advance.
