T510, first impression of FHD screen

2010-03-10, 18:01 PM

After about 12 hours with this laptop, here are some impression of the screen (I'm not going to comment on performance, notebookcheck has a very good article on that)

 

- I was looking for a high resolution screen for coding, this is IT. The fact that it is 16x9 works out nicely so I can fit two consoles side by side

- Colors look very vivid, though I'm not using for any sort of photo publishing

- Screen is BRIGHT, I use it at 13/15 because max out setting is just a bit too bright

- Great contrast, I put this screen side by side with my T60 and it is a world of difference

 

Overall I'm pretty happy with this beside the fact that it took almost 2 months for the order.

Thanks for the impressions.  I am also trying to maximize my screen real-estate for coding.

 

Here's hoping mine ships soon since they are not available on new orders.

I just finished a complete format / fresh intall of Windows 7 Professional on my T510 w/ FHD.

 

The screen looks great -- the default THINK "profile" and color pallete looked really dated to me.

 

Phong -- did you notice that from the factory, the text is actually magnified to 125% by Lenovo?

 

I bumped mine down to 100%; small, but still definitely usable.

 

For reference, you can find that by Right clicking on the Desktop, going to Screen Resolution -> Make text and other items larger or smaller

I didn't do fresh install but I did go through and clean out the crapwares and a bunch of lenovo stuffs I didn't like. Yeah they probably uppped the font size for people who are not used to tiny text. At 100%, it is small but fairly sharp.

Hi, 

Anyone know what's up with the lenovo site and FHD option on the T510?   I went looking today for to buy a T510 w/ the FHD screen and low and behold, the FHD opiton has disappeared from the customize list.   I've GOT to have the 1920 x 1080 size so now this is a no-purchase.   This is pretty insane.   Thanks, G. Mobley

They removed it because the backlog on the order is crazy right now. It took me close to two months and a couple of phone calls to get mine and I ordered it pretty early on back in jan.

Thanks!.  I'll move my frustration over to the shipping thread and try to keep this one clean.  Be glad you got the FHD!

 

Later!

Hi phuongdnguyen,

 

Can you please tell me what is the type-model of your T510?

 

An example from the tabook.pdf of a type-model for a T510 is "4313-28U".

 

I couldn't find in the tabook.pdf a type-model for a T510 with an FHD screen.

 

TIA
