    Nope, ASUS and Fujitsu both teamed up and created this technology, so besides the V6va, no other laptops. But I think there are some regular LCD's that use it...

    Doesn't Thinkpad Flexview count as IPS screen?

    HP is offering some of their business class notebooks as having wide viewing angles. Makes me wonder if they are now offering it.

    Any Thinkpad with Flexview, and if you're into tablets - the Thinkpad X41 Tablet also.

    I'm interested. What models?

    Edit: I just remembered that I read somewhere that some of Sony's high-end screens are also IPS, but it's not easy to find out which, because you can find their XBrite (glossy) label on both the IPS screens and the regular TN ones.

    If you go on their webpage, some of the 15" business models say Wide Viewing Angle. They interesting thing is it is offered on widescreen models which I have never seen IPS on a widescreen.
