Apple Apple makes the best consumer laptops. For me, there's absolutely no denying that this is the case. Apple has had this lead over the competition since the iBook G3 Dual USB 12.1" and 14", and has never lost it. Right now, the rumour mill is abuzz about Apple supposedly prepping to launch a MacBook Pro with a retina display - 2880x1800.

Nice! Yes, I've been North American centric in my views on screens. I'm not surprised there were much better panels from Japan, though I'm surprised by the 15" size.

If my T61p screen dies I'll be sorely tempted to try and source one of those nice panels to replace it. ;)

You also need a 15.0" 4:3 T60 or T60p chassis, though, to house the screen.

And, your T61p must be a 14.1" 4:3 model - widescreen need not apply.

I'm almost 100% sure there wasn't a 4:3 T61p. By the time the T61p rolled around, all you could get was a widescreen display with an nVidia chip (which, if produced before Summer 2008, will eventually fail). The best case scenario is to find a T60p 4:3 (which is limited to 3GB of ram), or find a T61 with 4:3 ratio (only available with Intel GMA 965) and retrofit the UXGA screen.
