Keep in mind that the "reason" the 1920x1080 display is expensive is because it's a 95% gamut display with very good colors. It's better than a typical 1920x1080 display, and better than a typical desktop monitor.
Still, regardless of whether or not you have an external monitor, keep at least 1600x900. The Lenovo Thinkpad T530 should not be bought in any configuration that includes the default 1366x768 display, which makes things onscreen large and has very poor image quality due to low contrast.
And having an external monitor isn't really a particularly good reason not to get the 1920x1080 display. Both displays can be used at the same time in an extended-desktop setup, and there will be time when the external monitor is not around.
The 1920x1080 display upgrade from the 1600x900 display in the T530 isn't a mandatory upgrade, but it's a good upgrade.
