R61 with matte display - want to avoid glossy screen

2008-05-08, 18:41 PM
I'm about to order a thinkpad but want to be sure that I'm not getting a glossy screen. 

I want a matte or anti-reflection coated screen, but I can't tell what is what based on the display description.

Right now my cart has a ThinkPad R61 7732 with 14.1 WXGA TFT, w/ Camera .  Is this a glossy screen?

If so, what are my options for getting a matte or non-glossy screen?


thanks for the help!

Eric

Yup, check it out for yourself in tabook. Search for "vibrant".

oops, I mis-spoke.  I want the 15.4" screen, not the 14.1"

but I do want this in a matte-finish.  that's just about my top priority in buying this laptop.  anyone have any ideas?

the good thing with thinkpads is that you can have any laptop colour as long as its black, and the screen is that you can have any screen finish as long as its matte, so whether you want it or not, matte is the only screen surface you get.... Thinkpads are business orientated hence the matte screen, if its entertainment orientated then glossy screen would be offered instead.... or if you are apple you can choose either..

Some R series models have a glossy screen.

thanks for the info.  I also learned that the "R61i has an optional glossy screen. Lenovo calls it VibrantView, but the rest of the screens are matte just like the T series"
