Thanks Jimbo! Guess I'll go and test out which test can complete within 5 minutes...and compare the results. So there really is no point to go full on when you're on a laptop. (my LCD panel is only 94.5% sRGB and 68% Adobe RGB).
Next, I'll have to figure out how to do it in Lion (got a hackintosh going :-D )

I love the W700's calibrated display (and palmrest tablet), and it's interesting that you mention the Mac. I, and a lot of other potential Mac customers, ordered W700's using a steep discount Lenovo offered in Fall 2008. Many of us were torn between the W700 and the not-yet-announced new 17" MacBook Pro. I was willing to cancel the order and wait for the Mac, if Apple would only release some info about whether the display was RGB-LED-backlit, and what graphics processor it would have. So I emailed that to Steve Jobs, who replied:
"Sorry Jim, but we can't run our entire business around the timing of your notebook orders. You will, however, be kicking yourselves in the butts.
Sent from my iPhone"
Haven't kicked myself yet.

And you have a PM waiting over there as well, with some info. I posted the link back to the thinkpads.com thread, so that readers of this thread could see more about why you need the info on IBMPMSVC. Sorry if my different names here/there cause confusion.
