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!

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 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.
