Review: Lenovo X220
December 13, 2011
At work we started purchasing some Lenovo Thinkpad X220s and of course I got the first one. I’ve used the X220 before, so this isn’t my first time with it. Though along with this purchase I got a couple of the popular accessories, those being the Ultrabase and the 6 Cell (19+) battery. Also, since I like to tinker I purchased an Intel 160GB SSD to replace the stock hard drive. I’ll talk about about all of these fun bobbles, but mostly about the X220 itself.
Do not install Windows 7 via USB 3

Recently, I was trying to install an Intel 320 SSD into my Lenovo X220 laptop. Since the X220 uses the a 7mm tall 2.5” HD bay, this is annoying. Once I got the SSD drive trimmed down a few millimeters and installed, I had to re-install Windows 7 and this is where things went screwy.
