I am very excited to receive my laptop and based on the research I've done within these forums it seems I'm looking at a good month or more wait. That's okay but I'm hoping to receive my T60p with the highest quality parts so I can put it to use right away and not send it back and forth to lenovo and waste more time.
I'll give them a call on monday and see if I can somehow have them supply my T60p with a samsung screen before it ships. I only ordered it on Thurs Sept. 14 so hopefully they won't give me a hard time(although I expect they will)
I do not believe they will let you request a specific screen. When I spoke with my sales rep, he said that it was not possible to do so. Also, there are no guarantees at this point as to whether or not not the viewing angles and coloration will be an improvment over the TMD screen. The one thing that is certain is the refresh rate is twice as good on the Samsung and Hydis screens. Until I get the Samsung screen, I will reserve my judgement as to its quality. These are still great computers, keep that in mind.
