Hello! I hope that somebody from Lenovo will look at this...
Tuesday this weekend i needed to replace FAN & LCD display. Service gives me TN display instead of IPS that i had. so i looked at it and i see that on lenovo website it show me this:
"Processor: 3rd Generation Intel Core i5-3230M Processor(2.6GHz, 3MB): : Memory: 4GB PC3-12800: : Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64(GR:German): : Hard Drive: 500 GB 5400: : Wired Network: Integrated Intel 82579LM Gigabit Network Adapter: : Wireless Network: WAN Upgradeable; Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 (2x2 AGN 300Mbps): : Ports: External Microphone Headphone Line-In/out Combo Jack; 1 USB 2.0 (Constant Power); External Display (VGA); RJ-45; Docking/Port Replicator; Display port; 2 USB 3.0: : Form Factor: Notebook: : Included Warranty: 3Yr 1Yr Bat OSR"
But I have Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3520M CPU @ 2.90GHz.
can you check it? because I am really disappointed by this. Now i have that ugly TN panel which have no contrast at all and hate it.. I want my IPS.

Are you the original owner? It sounds like someone (other than Lenovo) changed the motherboard. That could have voided the warranty entirely.
