Oldest Thinkpad with 4k monitor support?

#1 Post by Olwe » Fri Feb 09, 2018 3:53 pm

What's the oldest/cheapest Thinkpad 4** that will (efficiently) support a 4k monitor or even TV? I've tried to research this, but get confused over what they mean by laptop screen res, what the on-board Intel HD will do, etc.

T440 and later
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
