    its really inexcusable ... who are the product managers for these oem's.... anyone listening to the market?
    no wonder the galaxy note 2 sold out - people ARE capable of noticing the difference between toilet displays and GOOD displays. its obvious

    Most people don't care about this sort of stuff though. NBR and other tech-knowledgeable communities only make up a tiny fraction of the total laptop buying market. Funny enough that people notice the display in tablets (Galaxy Note 2, iPad Retina, etc); maybe that'll translate to the masses starting to demand high-quality, high-res laptop displays in the future.

    The Thinkpad W5x0 series do not have IPS displays. Currently, the only Thinkpads that has an IPS option are the X220 and X230.

    Unfortunately, the Dell M4700 IPS panel has been unavailable for months. Since September 2012, at least. I just checked the Dell configurator and was unable to order an IPS panel for either the M4700 or the M6700. I have "chatted" with their customer support people three or four times in the last 5 months, and they have never had an ETA on the return of the IPS panels.

    Dell had several problems with the IPS panel when they had it for the M4600, and they tried fixing it in time for the M4700 release, but were unable to. Instead of shipping out more problematic IPS 15.6" displays, Dell instead opted not to sell a M4700 IPS.

    Sadly, the IPS option is still listed in all the M4700 sales literature, and the customer support staff have never given a definite "it will never be offered again" answer. As a result, the M4700 shows up in lists (as in this thread) of "laptops with IPS panels". But it should not (currently) be on such a list.
