Here are my 3 ThinkPads with IPS panels. (All of which are in UXGA resolution)
I upgraded the IDTech panel on the A30p into another one with the same model (IAUX14S, 05K9967) with better condition.
Since I have its older panel lying around, recently I thought of using it to replace the non-IPS UXGA panel I previously had on the T42 and it took me several tries to get it right due to the cable length problem (I initially folded the cable like everybody else did but today I ended up discovering that the cable is dying with weird stuff displaying so I had to fold it back and truncate the thinklight instead)
http://imgur.com/a/VyZyl
So the result is all the three laptops have IDTech panels. Only the ones on A30p and T42 are IAUX14S, but only the ones on A30p and T43p are in usable condition (The older IAUX14S panel displays everything disgustingly yellow except for the yellow background picture from one of the photos)

This is my new daily driver. X250 768p next to a 24" Dell 1440p monitor. They are both around 123ppi which is consistent without scaling. My first Thinkpad daily driver in 3 years.

It mainly sits as a desktop, but when I need to travel, I just grab it and go. That wallpaper on the right has a lot of nostalgia for me.

I remembered that one of the Google images result of ThinkPad T43 is a T43p in the space background. Not that one, but quite similar.

This is a rogue "ThinkPad A31p" built under your motherboard you sent me for free. :P
Built with half of the parts as semi-working and as barebone unit.
http://imgur.com/a/hD3Lm
The freezing issue you said was because something minor is shorting inside the motherboard and the southbridge heats up to when it decides to switch off and then freeze the computer. Inside that gallery are some of the things I did to prevent that so that I can have some form of a functional A31p.

Teach your kids to build the Thinkpads for you. Thats what my dad did and then he just lets me do it all now. 3 Kids, 3 A31s.

Trying hard, but since they are 7, 6 and 2 yrs old all they have in their portfolio is annihilated T43, destroyed 600x, pulverized R400, many T60s turned to scrap and a couple of broken single parts. I will not count broken HDDs for the sake of birthrate.

Give them base model T42s and T40s. No harm if there destroyed. Help them on their first few fixes them and let them try. I found my dads old 570e with broken LCD cable and tried to fix it by jamming a screw driver into a whole in the docking aligners. Worked once, and now I cant find the LCD I stole out of it. Was is left of it is a mobo with no fan. I also found a NOS keyboard laying around for it too :) Also stripped a screw because I hadnt learned about dont put small screwdriver into wrong screw hole and stripped to a machine finished hole.

I like your choice of durable items. Durable Thinkpad, lamp, (probably the gun) , and a nice wood table. Now get yourself some Dell Ultrasharps from 2001 and a nice IBM Model F and youre ready for WW3.

The two things on your desk, the mouse and the gun. And I am not sure what should be more redundant.

The mouse, well that that is what some people are happier using.

The gun, which reminds me I am on an American forum. LOL

Hes prepared for a burglary. Thinkpads make great shields and gun as a weapon. If all else fails flip the table and use as barricades. Its the US, prepare for everything. Shouldn't have to but better prepared then not.

Your Lisi would be more faithful, cheaper to run but not as dangerous as the on screen model. IMHO
