Can you explain a bit more as to why you want it?

I think the advantages through your link describes why WewantIPS wants IPS Screen.

The HP Envy comes with an IPS screen, but users are mentioning that "the reds lean to the orangish side".
According to a user poll, 30% want to return their HP Envy15.

I would be surprised to learn that many people could tell the difference between the current W520 FHD screen, and an IPS version. Certainly Pros will be able to, but the average lay person, not so much.
Where I would like to see an IPS option is in the 13 or 14" class ThinkPads. Even a blind squirrel would be able to tell the difference in the current panels and a high quality alternative. I am willing to pay a premium for a better screen and I am hopeful someone will announce something at CES next week.

The W530 definitely needs an IPS option, not because of some marginal changes / increases in color gamut, but because the W520 has horrible vertical viewing angles and a 6-bit gray scale.

I like the FHD panel on the W520 just fine. Of course, I only use it to surf the web on occasion. My W520 is typically docked with three huge WUXGA monitors.
Does anyone use the laptop display for any serious work that requires IPS?
PS: Any word on when the "W530" / Ivy Bridge might be available?

Some IPS displays are relatively budget friendly but give not so good performance (X220). Awesome IPS displays are fantastic to work with but are expensive (e.g. see the stunning HP Dreamcolor). As always Lenovo product planners have to balance cost vs. market wants.
