Of course this all assumes that somebody beforehand did not swap out the panel.

That said, while there is a difference, it is not a massive one, and the 2005 T43 IPS screens are not as clear and bright as 2011 IPS screens (such as an iPad or a Nook Color).

This is correct presuming that the correct monitor driver is installed, which just isn't the case on most generic installs.Once you get the actual laptop, you can check for sure by looking in Device Manager - there should be an entry under Monitor that uses the word Flexview.
I'd beg to partially differ with the statement above.That said, while there is a difference, it is not a massive one, and the 2005 T43 IPS screens are not as clear and bright as 2011 IPS screens (such as an iPad or a Nook Color).
No, the old school FlexViews are not as bright as the modern ones - my wife has an iPad 2 and it's extremely bright, due to its LED backlight. No argument there.
However, when compared to *any* TN panel, viewing angles of an IPS screen - even an aging one - are downright stunning and there is really no comparison. The same holds true for their colour reproduction.

If you can easily read the screen from 45 degrees to either side, then you can be sure that it's Flexview. Around the time these T4x machines were new products, a colleague of mine was using a Sony notebook -- its LCD was as directional as a laser beam. We would try to look a source code together, but with the machine in line with my friend, the display was simply dark to me sitting right next to him.
I wouldn't say that. Most modern TN screens are easily viewable side-to-side. It's the top-to-bottom viewing angles that are so much better in Flexview (IPS) screens.mark-ibmtp wrote:If you can easily read the screen from 45 degrees to either side, then you can be sure that it's Flexview.
