Screen resolution in T400

2008-10-09, 17:45 PM

Hi everybody

 

I'm thinking about buying a T400 to replace my old T41. Comparing the features for the laptop, I've seen the native resolution for the T400 is 1440x900 while for my current laptop is 1024x768. In case of buying the new machine, I'd be using XP instead of Vista. My question ...Is that laptop "usable" at that resolution (1440x900) with XP? It seems XP don't scale fonts as well as Vista.1024x768 for a standard 14" screen is perfect to me, but I'm not sure about 1440x900...

 

Thanks in advance

I would not hesitate. 1440x900 is not such a high resolution, it is 120dpi. I would like higher and have 1 diopter of astigmatism.

Thanks for your reply, migle.

 

As told, my current laptop is 14.1" and 1024x768, which means 91.43 PPI.

Now, I'm also trying a Netbook and it's 10", 1024x600, 118.68 PPI. This screen is very uncomfortable to me, the fonts are too small.

The WXGA+ T400 is also 14.1" at 1440x900, 120.43PPI so it's even worse.

 

I spent around 8 hours at day looking at the screen and I wouldn't like getting blind in a couple of months, I've got just this pair of eyes

 

I've also tried to get price for other models with lower resolutiones but I've been told (and checked) that, from the large list of T400 and T500 models listed in Lenovo's site ( the link "other models" ), the dealers just sell a few of them. Bad luck for me, I suppose

 

Muito obrigado, Migle
