could you share your settings or your colour profile?
I'm having big issues with saturation and I don't have a calibrator to use soon!

I would like to send you my profile, but I only found an option to post pictures on this forum. On the other hand, I didn't use any third-party software. With that said, you should be able to replicate the same outcome on your computer playing with the settings of 'Windows 7 Color Management' and 'Nvidia Control Panel'.
Actually, the second part of the solution was me getting used to the more intense colors of my new display. By now I like them and at the same time I always take into consideration that they might display differently to others. Furthermore, I read up on the topic which I wasn't really interested in before, and understood that those saturated colors somehow are part of the wide-gamut/LED deal.
Hope that helps.

just to remember everyone, if you get inconsistence of colors between nvidia and intel mode, go to msconfig (start menu - type msconfig - press enter), go into "startup" tab, sort by make and scroll down until "Intel Corporation".
Disable the three rows:
- Intel Common User Interface
- Intel PIconStartup
- Intel Common User Interface
they you can load your color profile through windows color profile manager and it will be the same between nvidia/intel or after suspend.

I had the same issue with the laptop that was shipped. Frustrating. Here is what I did to fix it (this may be the same solution that Punch Card used). The below is essentially copied from the Lenovo manual, page 199 (Start -> All Programs -> Lenovo Device Experience -> User Guide). Before looking for the device on my computer, I first checked on line for updates. The installed driver was from 2010, the update installed an early 2011 version:

rc87 and Thomas_UCD, thank you both for your additional input!
After I had newly installed my OS, I was quite happy with the results. So, at this point I don't want to touch my running system.
But if things worsen, I'll definitely remember your solutions and give them a try! Thanks again!

The Pantone software, IMO, is really bad, it was giving me a slight yellow-ish over cast.
I then moved on to use dispcalGUI + ArgyllCMS (with some tinkering so the laptop won't go into suspend/sleep when I shut the lid to start the calibration). This gives a better result with a better white point.
Yesterday, I went on to buying the Datacolor Sypder 4 (Express) (and keep on using ArgyllCMS). The result of this seems to give me an all around better profile, but only by a small margin.
All in all, I concluded that the Pantone software is a problem. The x-rite hardware does a decent job, except that it has a fixed sample location, and bounded to the laptop.
Any potential new buyer should look into buying an external sensor (e.g. the Sypder 4 Pro, as it also has an ambiant light sensor). Don't spend the money on the built-in sensor as its usage is rather limited (e.g. you can't use it on another computer, or another display that's even connected to the same laptop when/if you have a multi-display configuration at the desk).

Can you post your corrected color profile?

I don't use the same panel as the Lenovo FHD.
Plus, colour profile should be for one specific panel only, not the model of panel...if you take colour seriously.
