I also have another T60p, with a 1600x1200 FlexView panel. Its not nearly as bright as the LED-backlit panel, but it's pretty good overall I think. I also just bought a new T61 nvidia M/B from theboardroom.info, which I was planning to put into this T60p. However I'm having some second thoughts. I've been casually looking at buying a 14.1" SXGA+ T61. I was thinking of buying a T61 with an SXGA+ screen, but I'd get one with a dead nvidia motherboard and put the new nvidia board into it instead of into the T60p. This would let me put my spare Intel graphics T60 board into the T60p, and I thought it would be a fun project to put libreboot on it in order to have a fully-free BIOS (I already have a couple of coreboot laptops, but they still need some proprietary blobs). I could also try to live the 32-bit lifestyle for a little while.
So, my question is, how is the quality on the 14.1" 4:3 SXGA+ T61 displays? Would it be a waste to put a new nvidia board into one of these laptops, when I could put it into a T60 w/ UXGA flexview?

They are also getting very rare.
The IPS-version of the 15" screens, and especially their LED-version, make a huge world of difference.
BTW, putting a T7200/T7400/T7600 CPU in the T60 will let you run 64-bit, but you are still limited to ~3GB RAM.

You'll be endlessly adjusting the lid's tilt angle just to see half of the screen.
