Thinkpad X1 Yoga Gen 4 Display Options

2019-08-01, 3:16 AM

I'm not a techy and just ordered the Thinkpad X1 Yoga Gen 4 and am confused on the screen option. I don't want the 4K because I want the Thinkshutter and I don't care about the IR.

The FHD 1920x1080 w/380 nits or the WQHD w/280 nits?


1. Why would the lesser resolution have more brightness?

2. Every search I do says the WQHD is better than FHD.....but nothing addresses if it's better if the nits are lower.

3. It will be mostly for work, spreadsheets, web, email.....but I also want a beautiful screen since I am paying high dollar for this laptop...and I will use it for personal use also.

4. Is there a difference in what I will be able to/see fit on the screen....such as a spreadsheet? Some posts say you won't see as much of the document on the WQHD as you would on the FHD. Other posts say that Windows 10 doesn't work the greatest with WQHD.


Also, both displays are 'glossy'....no option for Matte.

And....you can't get the 4K without it reverting to the IR camera with no thinkshutter....why?? I would really like the 4K but would rather have the thinkshutter and the longer battery life as long as the display is still above par.


I appreciate your advice! Thanks!

Are you sure that IR does not have ThinkShutter? I think that was the case on previous models.

My X1Y4 has the 4K UHD panel, and has both the combo IR camera and the ThinkShutter.
