    I would wait to see what the reviews like on the 14" X1 Carbon first, it is "rumoured" that this machine would have an above average panel compared to the standard offerings found on the T Series. The display which was used in the Russian review was a LG LP140WD2(TL)(E2) panel but I wait for a comprehensive analysis first.

    Hearst, what Russian review are you referring to? I've only seen a Russian video on youtube, from which I can't really tell. The display does seem nicer, but it also seems glossy, which afaik is not the case.

    This is the Russian review of the X1 Carbon.

    I guess a lot of people are going to scream bloody murder over the proprietary RAM and SSD.

    Why? Apple's going the same route, the sheeple will toddle along behind.

    For most people it's probably not a big deal. But for those of us who like to save money (and those of us who rely on upgrades to get more life out of our gear), the reduction of the number of user-replaceable parts is definitely a strike against both machines. This sort of thing is part of the reason why I really dislike this "as thin as possible, damn the consequences" trend. It's quite a bad one for those of us who do more than show off our Facebook machines...

    I hate Facebook, too. Utter waste of human energy.

    The market will vote with it's wallet - but this is a disturbing trend. Hopefully my system will be enough for me until Rockwell in 2014 debuts.

    For those of you who complain about AUO panels, my T430s contains LTN140KT03401 Samsung display. Although it is bright, contrast is pretty poor and vertical viewing angles are about 2 degrees.

    As someone already mentioned, dialing down gamma helps somewhat.

    [EDIT]: Sorry, wrong topic, although it might be useful here too.

    hi. I just got a Dell UltraSharp U2412M monitor and connected it to my T420 by the provided VGA cable. I hear connection thorough displayport is better? If so, what is the reason, and what cable do I need to get (I'm not sure and I don't want to get a wrong cable...).
    Also what resolution would be best to use for this type of external monitor?
    Any tips very gratefully received as its the first time I connect a laptop to an external monitor and I'm not sure I'm doing things correctly!

    sorry for asking dumb questions...
