T400 WXGA High Nit, LED Backlit

 

 

Lenovo offered for few days T400 with above monitor. Does anyone know what happened with that option. Will it be available again.

Re: T400 WXGA High Nit, LED Backlit

I've been trying to find out the same thing!  Last week,  in addition to the three current display options for the T400 (WXGA CCFL, WXGA+ CCFL, WXGA+ LED) there was an option for WXGA+ "High Nit" LED.  Then it disappeared without a trace!?!?

 

The existig WXGA+ LED display option is a 200-nit display, so I'd expect a "High Nit" version to be 250- or maybe even 300-nit!  Currently, the ThinkPad X200s is the only Lenovo with a 250-nit display.  The X301 has a 300-nit display, as does the SL300.  The SL300's display is amazing, especially considering the price point of the system. 

 

Someone from Lenovo has to know something about this......throw us a bone, please!

Re: T400 WXGA High Nit, LED Backlit

This  is a great question.  I just ordered the LED High NIt Backlight WXGA.  I would like the HIgh Nit LED backlight WXGA+.  Does anyone know if this ooptio would ever be available. Also I would love some opinions on which is better.  I mainly surf web, read emails and some MSFT Office work.  I also use a docking station a lot at work with external big monitors.

Re: T400 WXGA High Nit, LED Backlit

The LED-backlit WXGA+ (1440x900) display was pulled from the option list a few weeks ago.  It is reportedly due to supply issues. 

 

The High-Nit WXGA (1280x800) is now available as a $150 option on the T400.  This is a 680-nit display (compared to 250-nit for the WXGA+ LED or 185-nit for the base WXGA CCFL-backlit version).  It is intended for outdoor use primarily.

If you were ordering a system right now what would you order or would you wait for the LED backlight WXGA+ to come back?

I'm currently waiting for the WXGA+ 1440x900 LED display option before I order.

If you have the option of waiting, I'd say hold out for the WXGA+ LED to be offered again.  The additional brightness, lower power consumption and overall improved image quality will be worth it in the long run.
