Current models with 16:10 screens?

#1 Post by Edward Mendelson » Sat Nov 27, 2021 8:58 pm

I'll be in the market next year for a replacement for my X270, and hope to buy a machine with a 16:10 screen. I've been focusing more on older models than new ones, and can't find a clear list of current models with 16:10 screens. I see that the X13 Gen 2 has 16:10, and the X1 Carbon Gen 9 (too expensive for me to consider). Is there anything else I should be looking at? Thanks for any information.

X1 Nano is 16:10

I know nothing, but I would expect that next year more of the lineup moves back to 16:10. Hopefully the T and P-series.

To add to the list on The Verge, the newest X1 Extreme Gen 4 and P1 Gen 4 machines have 16" diagonal screens and are both 16:10, with two choices of screens:
WQUXGA (3840 x 2400) IPS
WQXGA (2560 x 1600) IPS

And the X1 Carbon Tablet 3rd Gen has a 13" diagonal 3:2 screen:
QHD+ (3000 x 2000) IPS

All three of these models are on good sale prices for consumers right now. I now have one of these X1 Extremes and two of these X1 Carbon Tablet 3rd gens.

Thank you - and I hope this question isn't bad thread-drift: but does anyone have views on the two different resolutions? Is the higher-resolution actually usable? I assume you expand the fonts, etc., but I'm not sure that all applications can handle this.

Higher res is usable with scaling applied. The higher res screens often offer more brightness and better colors, too, but higher resolution results in a shorter battery life.

Ah - I hadn't thought of that. Thank you!
