    580:1 contrast ratio at max brightness is worse than a modern TN panel. Under 1500:1 is rather unacceptable at this price point.

      Well, the Spyder 4 that I use usually records lower contrast than other more accurate sensors. Also, 1500:1 is a bit unrealistic imo, around 800+:1 should be enough for most users.

        I just wish Lenovo would at least offer an option for premium other than X1, that's all. In comparison, Mac, Surface, XPS, and Elitebook provide the best screen choices independent from their product type. The closest competitor to T480s with MX150 is probably Huawei Matebook X Pro and that also has one of the better screens in the industry minus the T480s' business tax.
        The screen of a laptop is something I look at all day and as such, I can't really apologize for having high standards. It would be a different story if I could afford to own separate devices for leisure but I prefer to have one do-it-all PC.

        Yes, that I do agree with, the screen options on this Lenovo are not as good as on some other laptops out there

    Hi, i was torn down choosing between the X1C 6G and the T480s both in lowest config. I just returned my Razer Blade Stealth 2019 due to the coil whine and buzzing speakers issue and razer supports is one if not the worst in the industry.I just need a small thin and light laptop for watching youtube, surfing web and some light task school work. It would be nice if you help me to choose which device suit best for me. Any other device recommend is welcome, sorry for my English not so good. Thank you.

      I think either should be quite good. The X1 is thinner, lighter and more expensive, plus you can get it with more screen options. There's probably a little better value in the T480, due to the lower price, but the two are similar in most ways.
