To be honest, you're gonna get some light leakage with any quality screen you get with a laptop these days. The technology is just not there yet, and won't be for a while. Your best bet is to just get the best laptop specs for the price and not worry too much about the display. Just make sure to get WUXGA. Don't settle for the lesser screen, as it just isn't as good. Whatever brand you decide on, get the 'Truebrite, Truelife, CrystalBrite etc. screen.
