Question: T400 LED Screen Resolution Limited to WXGA?

Lenovo's website (US) is now only showing the following screen options for the T400:

  • 14.1 WXGA TFT, w/ CCFL Backlight, Camera
  • 14.1 WXGA+ TFT, w/ CCFL Backlight, Camera [add $30.00]
  • 14.1 WXGA TFT, w/ LED Backlight, Camera [add $50.00] 
  • 14.1 WXGA TFT High Nit, w/ LED Backlight [add $120.00]  
  • 14.1 WXGA TFT High Nit, w/ LED Backlight, Camera [add $150.00]

 

Does anyone know why the LED screen is limited to WXGA and not WXGA+?

 

I'm looking to replace my T40p, and I'm not willing to go down in screen resolution.

 

Thanks,

Lenovo isn't offering 14.1 WXGA+ w/ LED right now.  I hope they do offer it again ASAP! LOL.

There are 14.1 WXGA+ LED models available right now. Check the ThinkPad Reference (tabook) and search. That option is just apparently not available in CTO (Custom To Order) systems from the Lenovo Store at the moment.

This brings up the question: How can you order a pre-configured ThinkPad like those listed in tabook? Do you have to buy from a reseller? Why can't you order one from the online Lenovo Store? (Maybe you can, but it's not obvious to me how to do it, at least for the U.S. online store...)

Re: Question: T400 LED Screen Resolution Limited to WXGA?

That's a good question.

 

Standard configurations are definitely available through resellers in the US. There are many reputable resellers. I bought my previous ThinkPad (standard configuration X41) through one, at a great price.

 

I just called the Lenovo US store to check, and the rep said he could only sell me a CTO system.

 

I know businesses can get standard configurations through their channel.

 

And in a lot of the World, standard configurations are all that is available!

Re: Question: T400 LED Screen Resolution Limited to WXGA?

T400s has a WXGA+ screen. They probably dont want to cannibalize the sales of their new model, so the WXGA+ on regular T400 got discontinued. By the way you can order a T400 WXGA+ through some universities.
