X1 Yoga - Comparing Display Options

2016-10-22, 14:41 PM

Hi All,

I'm thinking about buying the Thinkpad X1 Yoga and currently leaning towards the FHD (1920x1080) option due to the fact I'm not sure how useful increased resolution would be on a 14" screen. I would more seriously consider the OLED model but the fact it has a glossy finish is kind of a negative for me. I'm also concerned about battery life and possible burn-in issues associated with OLED. I'm curious how the color and gamut of the WQHD IFD compares to the FHD model. Also the FHD doesn't list on the specs page as Anti-Glare, but the WQHD does. Is this correct?

14" WQHD (2560 x 1440) OLED, Touch, 300 nits
14" FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS, Touch, 300 nits
14" WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS, Anti-Glare, 300 nits

Any advice on this decision is appreciated.

I choose the 1920 x 1080 for the same reason as you however I did not realize the 2560 version is anti glare. I decide not for the OLED as it used much more power and reduced the battery life.

If I had to re-order a new one I will choose the 2560 x 1440 as I think higher the resolution is and better is the quality for the letters on the screen.
