Sexy flat and thin bezels may be wooing everyone here tired of their Thinkpads but my preferred screen size is 15.4" WUXGA.
I would argue that out of the "conventional" resolutions WUXGA is likely the most productive one by default for a person with average eyesight, be it on 15.4" or even 17.0" LCD. It's a shame that we never got to see an IPS 15.4" WUXGA anywhere...

What does it matter that it is only TN? Yea, the viewing angles are a bit bleak but the junk that they put on the P50 was IPS and it sucked. The WUXGA TN panels(ones from Sharp) rocked the socks off the P50's IPS panel! Same with the W700. A good TN panel can still have really nice viewing angles, like the one on my X220.

To me it does. My eyes get tired a lot faster when using a TN panel than an IPS one, presuming that both are CCFL-lit.

Sharp WUXGA screens are indeed nice, and I've been recommending them here on the forum for quite some time now. Likely one of the best TN panels I've ever come across. No first-hand experience with the P50, so I can't comment on its LCD.

Space grey, 256gb i5.
I see. 256 GB is a bit low. It is also overpriced in EU as usually, more than 30% up compared to US price :(

Just more questions. According reviews there supposed to be Windows 10 Pro version while Amazon specs have (probably wrong) Windows 10 Home. Does it have TPM? The specs are mess.

It's not about having "sexy thin bezels". It's about having the largest screen for a given laptop size.

Ratio of screen area to that of laptop:
TP25 (16:9) 69.1%
T60 (4:3) 14.1in 77.2%
T60 (4:3) 15in 78.3%
X60/X61 (4:3) 81.7%
Matebook X (3:2) 88%.

For me, it was about having the nicest screen possible. That isn't something I can get on a new ThinkPad anymore.

I am also tired of "Lenovo can not" while others can. The more people buy 3:2 over 16:9 the more chance to become common.

Chuwi LapBook 12.3 (Celeron, 2K IPS) Laptop Review

Yes, it is cheap chinese underpowered laptop for 300 Euro. But the display parameters are still impressive. As one comments says: Wow, 300 euro notebook has better display than almost any T-series Lenovo.

Maybe a taskbar or two's worth of additional space.

Hate to say it but 1366x768 has the most pixels here.
