The significance of the video card and UXGA IPS display cannot be stressed strongly enough. This is a machine that will not be able to be purchased (through the manufacturer) very shortly due to the fact that the display is IPS and UXGA. Lenovo is phasing that out. <<redundant I knowchrisnyc wrote:Does it really make sense at this date -- the 2623DDU was released over a year ago and is being discontinued, has Windows XP not Vista, etc -- to order one of these?
I do really like the 4:3 screen shape -- don't like widescreen, as well as the Flexview screen, this one UXGA and not available on just about any other notebooks ; but still, the idea of buying this when the current notebooks have Windows Vista, a newer processor, etc, seems a stretch to me.
Others thoughts and comments on this appreciated.
Both the processor and the OS can be changed by the end-user.
Graphics memory and GPU cannot be changed and other displays cannot be changed because they are non-existent. Only 15" displays may be substituted for IPS Flexview in the T60P model.
So, someone with an XGA or SXGA 15" T60P could upgrade to the UXGA IPS display but no one else. With laptops the price point is established by these two parameters (graphics processor/memory and display resolution). Anyone who has experience with high-end laptops would back me up on this.
This is an awesome buy.
...especially at this time.
