Display quality of X1 carbon / X1 carbon touch

I was considering getting this laptop , probably leaning toward the touch version.  But display quality is really important to me, I do much software evelopment so i stare at thescreen a lot of course 

 

I know this is not IPS panel, but more like the TN panel used in MacBook.   How does it compare to Macbook dispay (non retina). is it, worse,the same, or better?

I haven't spent much time on a newer MBP, but it's very equivalent to a MBP a few generations back, but is brighter.

 

It's for sure usable, and while IPS would be prefered, I can easily live with it daily.

What about this screen door effect i hear about on various forums.  I don't even know if I've noticed this on any monitors before.  Is whatever it is noticeable?  Does it cause reduction in crspness of text?

Screen door effect seems to be a scaling problem in windows, the effect is not always there. The effect can only be seen on white and looking less than a foot away.
