T470s screen vs t460s

I dont have the # number with me, but it seems the t470s screen (laptop from work) has worse screen than the t460s i have. Both are 1920x1080. or am I just not used to the t470s screen.

Re: T460s

Ok I see what you mean, the regular t460 has sata, 460s does not. I think I should have gotten the 460p which has both sata & m.2

x220i - crack screen

I inherited a broken x220i with crack screen. So the lenovo site used to tell you what parts your pc was shipped with, I dont see that option any more. Anyone know ?

So if that's the case, I'll have to pull the screen out first? Is IPS an option or not for 220i ?

Re: Windows 7 on Yoga?

second problem, when you are in tablet mode, the screen does not rotate, might be a software/driver issue, i just dont know what.. the pinch to zoom does not work in windows 7

so if you want those feature, i skip this model, if you dont use them, it works pretty well

Last year they had mandatory internal battery, i just check the configs, the internal battery can be an option. and I saw the warranty, the internal battery isn't cover unless you get the warranty with battery coverage.

Anyone know what the internal battery may weight ?

Yeah I got the system in December.. I like the ultrabase because you can plug a dvd drive in there.. it might out later or not at all.. using a usb dvd drive now.. takes up space on desk.
