Lenovo's Super Bright Outdoor X200 LCD

Those who work with laptops in uncontrolled lighting environments know that glossy screens aren't fun to work with. Thankfully, Lenovo knows this and that's why ThinkPads all have matte screens. But sometimes just having a matte screen just isn't enough.

In addition to the new multitouch screen for the ThinkPad X200 Tablet, Lenovo is also giving it an optional "super bright" screen that's better for outdoors.

Lenovo says that the optional screen features a 400 nit screen, which is nearly as bright as the HP Radiance screen on the HP Envy 13, but the X200 features a matte coating with a 1.2-percent reflectivity and wide viewing angle.

ThinkPad X200 Tablet with the multitouch screen and outdoor screen currently sells for $1,704.

  • I guess it's not always bad to nit pick. :>
  • Matte displays rule! :)
  • This will be obsolete when that other screen comes to market, I forget the name of the company, but Toms had an article/video of it a month or two ago. It turned off the color and backlight when outdoors for easy viewing in direct sunlight.
