    Hey guys, I'm seriously considering picking up a refurb X240/X250 to replace my Sony Vaio Duo for portable stuff. My only issue being screen resolution. Most machines I can find come with the HD screen, and not the FHD 1080p option.

    How does everyone with only the HD IPS option find it? I'm not sure I could cope with the downgrade in resolution after coming from the lovely screen on the duo, but then again I might be able to make it work if the difference isn't that notable.

    I'll be using it mostly on trains and planes for typing, web browsing, watching movies and playing some steam games.

    Does anyone have the x250 1920x1080 Ips touch display? Is this display glossy or matte? On the Lenovo site there are no information if the display is more matte or glossy like a mirror...

    All touch screens are reflective, like a glossy screen, due to the glass used in the touch surface.

    That's not true. The X60 tablet up to the X230 tablet have had multi-touch gesture screens that were matte.

    Unless we are talking about just the X250 here, in which case they would all be glossy indeed.

    I'm not speaking of the screen itself. It can be matte or glossy underneath, makes no difference because it's the glass in the touch surface that causes the reflectivity. I had a X200t with a matte Hydis LCD, but it was very reflective.

    First thanks to all replies.

    The reason for the question is that I'm currently unsure if I take the non touch or touch version of the FHD display. If the display is very glossy I may think about taking the touch display.
    Unfortunately I did not found any pictures that show the differences of the display surface at all. I do not want a "mirror" display like the Notebooks hat ~5-6 years ago.

    @Jayayess1190
    Is is possible to take a picture to see how glossy the screen is? I did not found any pictures showing the touch screen to find out if it is too glossy for me...
