The best display for the X200/X201 series, in terms of colour and contrast.
I assume it doesn't include the tablet version? Because how is better than my X200T outdoor viewable with 400 nits IPS matte panel?

T450s FHD touch vs non touch screen quality.

Are there any significant display quality difference between the touch version vs the non touch version such as brightness or sharpness?

nope, you're the one who made the thread, so as per forum rule and common sense. What is your offer? Because I don't need to sell it where as you want to buy one.

51nb now has a batch of new old stock (I believe) X230 which they are willing to mod with classic keyboard and WQHD 12.5" or FHD 13.3" screens.

WTB: X201T (Outdoor) and W520 (FHD) Sydn

WTB a X201T with the 400 nits outdoor screen and a W520 with FHD screen, hopefully they have the higher end CPU for their respective models, in good condition. Not to fuss about ram or storage as I can upgrade them.

Willing to pay $$$

Shipping to Sydney.

Thanks.
