    The Lenovo X1 display supposedly uses an IPS panel. It is a shame that it uses a glass covering though.

    AFAIK,the IPS panel used in certain Lenov X220 models is meant to be quite decent.

    768 vertical pixels is "adequate"? I don't think so.
    I am getting increasingly annoyed at laptops with very low vertical counts. The dell I had in 2004 had 1600x1200, why so sparse now.

    Hardware is giving us more and more horizontal pixels, while software demands more and more vertical space, with tit;e bars, menus, button bars, status lines all eating into the vertical space. Have you seen anything with MS's ribbon interface on these screens? around 30% is taken by the ui, leaving a little postbox to work in.

    Until the software writers move the controls from along-the-top to down-the-side then I will continue to shun these cut-down displays.

    It might be forgivable in a £200 supermarket lappie, but for £1100? Pull the other one, it's got bells on.

    I do find myself having to fullscreen etc annoyingly often with my 1366x768 display (13")

    I genuinely do not know how people cope with that resolution in a 15" laptop, especially.
