I am very pleased with my newer T410 laptop. The only complaint I have found is the resolution. It is set to 1280 x 800, which is not bad. It is a wide screen but not too high of a resolution. I was used to a T61 with a 1680×1050 resolution WSXGA+. It is amazing how you can miss that real estate.
When I started looking for a smaller laptop (14 or 13 inch), I was amazed that there were not that many high resolution machines to select from. I was able to find a few T410’s with 1440 x 900 resolution but they tend to be a lot more expensive. The T410s also had a higher resolution.
The question I have, is where have all the high resolution laptops gone? You can get a 15 inch or greater laptop with unreal resolution but the smaller (14 inch ) or less have limited resolution. Is there a reason for this?
You can find this type of resolution on a laptop a few years old, but not too many new ones. I’ve found it is difficult to get used to a smaller resolution, especially when using visual studio. In fact I’ve been frustrated enough that I’ve been looking for any t410’s with 1440 resolution to purchase and sell my current one.
