Lenovo ThinkPad T560 15.6" Intel i5 Laptop

1366x768 TN display low resolution and very poor quality. Poor contrast and viewing angles, and won’t let you fit much onscreen.

Disappointed to see this in a $779 laptop, either new or refurb.

IMO the T560 should be bought configured, with the highest priority put towards upgrading to the 1920x1080 IPS panel. Choose that before the i3 -> i5 CPU upgrade because it will be more noticeable, and do memory/SSD upgrades yourself because it’s cheaper. Avoid pre-configs with 1366x768 unless you are specifically planning to replace the LCD yourself.

See http://reddit.com/r/SuggestALaptop/ and http://reddit.com/r/thinkpad/ . Can be a great laptop, but they’ll all recommend only buying this laptop with the 1920x1080 IPS display.
