god damn it all, my shipping date got pushed back to the 19th. I ordered this either the day the website went up or the day after (I forget what date that was). that means it won't ship until around the 26th, and I'm gone from the 22nd to July 6th. blegh, I want my Thinkpad. Now.
I'm coming from a T410s and really curious to see the difference in screen quality... if it's anything like what I've heard of the T420s then I might be in for a bit of a disappointment...
The 410s 1440x900 screen is actually pretty good. Somehow, the quality goes down with the T420/T420s 1600x900 screens: both brightness and contrast suffer, and certain users have reported "screen door" (visible grid) effect. I suspect Lenovo uses the same screens in the T430/T430s. Sorry!
