X240 display type

Hello,

 

I'm looking here for a help guys. I'm thinking to buy a laptop from one person and he provided me model number and serial number, but I can't find any information regarding x240 laptop specifications. Especially I'm interesting in display type as I want to buy x240 with IPS display.

 

Can anybody tell me if laptop with machine type-model 20AMA0EG00 has IPS display?

 

Thanks in advance for your responses.

 

Vytautas

Re: X240 display type

I know about Product Specifications Reference (PSREF), but there is no such type-model number on x240 section. I've checked the serial number in warranty lookup and it showed same type-model number for me. So I guess it must be valid one.

Re: X240 display type

Good day and welcome to the community.

 

You might try using your model and serial #s here:

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-and-parts/partsLookup.page

 

It should give you a listing, at least partial, of the configuration as it left the factory. If you see an obvious item as the panel, you should be able to use the FRU # to get more info on it. Again, the listing is the factory configuration and won't reflect any post-delivery modifications.

 

Hope this helps a bit.

Regards.

Re: X240 display type

Hey sarbin,

 

thanks for quick reply. Seller gave me a guarrantee, that nothing has been changed after he bought this laptop initially.

 

I looked at the parts lookup and found only Mfg P/N: 0C00319, which gave me search results "lenovo 0c00319 laptop lcd screen 12.5" wxga hd". This is still unclear for me... does this laptop model has a true IPS display (300 nits, 700:1 contrast radio) or just a standard 200 nits, 300:1 contrast ratio TN display?

Re: X240 display type

What's the FRU (the 2nd field) of that screen in your laptop parts list?
There are two IPS screen models in x240:
04X0437 - LGD 12.5"HD/IPS AG LCD
04X3922 - LGD 12.5"IPS FHD LED backlight LCD panel with touch

 

To ensure is your screen IPS or no you can perform the simplest test.

Re: X240 display type

Look at the screen lengthways, at the small angle. On IPS screen colours don't disappear and change, contrast doesn't decrease.

Look at this face to face comparision video:

Re: X240 display type

You are welcome!

Do not forget to post the result and your opinion about matrice quality, please, as the same question - about the screen type - is one of the most frequent.

Re: X240 display type

I've got a chance to get my hands on that laptop and it definitely doesn't has IPS screen as the colors were distorted when closing the laptop lid or changing view angle. Netherless, screen brightness and display quality seems good enought for me as I'm planing to do only mobile work (programming) using this laptop, so I've bought this item and feeling satisfied.

Vytautas
