    I received the ThinkPad T60 from Lenovo this Friday and just wanted to post a couple of pics and let everyone know how ecstatic I am about the screen. It's certainly the best ThinkPad screen experience I've had, and I've gone through a lot of 'em. The viewing angles are seemingly limitless with little to no color distortion and the brightness is very good. I've uploaded some pics of the screen from various angles and alongside the new Dell e1705 laptop with a TrueLife screen. I'll post more on the T60 for Monday.

    the specs for the T60 I have are the 2623-D3U SKU you see in the above chart. In the pictures with two screens below the ThinkPad T60 is on the left, the e1705 is on the right.

    and some more pictures of just the T60, notice the color and brightness remain true even from very wide angles. Sorry for any blurriness, it's one of those "you need to see it in person" to appreciate how nicely the screen behaves in various angles of viewing.

    Thanks, abaxter. This is so good to hear--I guess I am one who has foolishly fretted about a drop in Thinkpad quality.

    Thanks again.

    and as an example for comparison of what often happens with LCD displays when you view from a high or low angle (not perpendicular) let's look at the Dell Inspiron B130 screen from a few angles.

    Notice the colors and contrast completely change depending on the angle of looking at the B130 screen, almost to the point it's hard to view.
