    All LCD's on laptop displays are TFT. You're probably thinking of the In Plane Switching vs Twisted Nematic debate, where IPS is of much higher quality but less availability.
    Unfortunately I don't think any Thinkpad comes with IPS anymore ever since switching to widescreen format. (I think the last was the T60p?)

    I noticed I said that and meant to say all laptop screens use TFT.

    The X201T has a couple of IPS screens. IPS generally gives you wider viewing angles, but isn't necessarily superior in all respects.

    I thought the tablets used PVA screens from samsung? But nonetheless still a huge upgrade from the cheap TN screens.

    Tabbook shows the X200 tablets as being IPS and the X201's as being either PVA or IPS.
