I'm looking into buying a new Thinkpad to replace my trustworthy but aging T42. When I look at the various Edge models, I see that there are different types of screens across the 13/14/15 inch models.
Is there a difference (other than size) for screens across the 13/14/15 inch model lines? By "Glare" does Lenovo mean "Glossy", or did they just forgot to add "Anti-" before "Glare"
I saw the 14" Edge model at Best Buy. The laptop looked nice and functioned well, barring the exceptionally glossy screen. It reflected the store's lights a lot, so I'm doubting it's ability to be a good laptop outdoors. On the bright side, I could probably use it as a mirror in the morning...
If the other Edge models have the same screen, I'll consider buying a T410... or another business-line laptop from another manufacturer.

I would suggest to buy T410 and not any of the edge model. I bought an edge myself and struggling with the way it behaves..
I also have an office laptop - T400 and I feel so relaxed and comfortable when I am on the T400. The edge on the other hand ,my personal one , is sluggish on touchpad which I guess Lenovo isnt going to fix ever.. There is an ongoing thread going on this forum reagarding the touchpad, but its never updated with a resoulution, but twith he cries of more and more user having it on their Edge..
The touchpad sluggishness is somekind of inherent bug..which I dont know when would be resolved.. I would say dont go for Edge..a T410 is anyday better than and an edge.I am myself looking to return my Edge it warranty allows and would look for T410 or a Sony..
