    This and also, unless you calibrate the display, you likely won't get the color accuracy you're expecting with an IPS panel. If you can get a decent IPS' go for it, the viewing angles will definitely help even uncalibrated.

    What's her major? ID, illustration, photography? She's probably going to end up doing most of her color-critical work in the school's computer lab, so don't sweat it if you can't find that perfect display.

    Exactly. Most students can't afford something like an HP laptop with a DreamColor screen so different schools set aside some money for a computer lab that has a decent desktop with a calibrated , high quality screen.

    It's the least (and I mean the very least) they can do. Tuition fees at most of the top design colleges nowadays are ridiculous, yeesh.

    If the OP is OK with used or refurbished notebooks, I'd recommend taking a look at Fujitsu's T902 tablet PC.
