Here’s an example from laptopmag.com The 11.6-inch, 1366 x 768-pixel matte display produced colorful images and strong viewing angles. We still saw a sharp and relatively bright image of the desktop at 90 degrees to the left or right of center.
Well, there two different panels that are being used in th x120e, a Samsung LTN116AT01-401 (better) and an LG LP116WH1-TLB1 (worse).
It could be the review sites were sent units with the better panels as I'm sure Lenovo is aware that ones is better than the other.
