The display on the X61 is nice. I know many users have said that the Lenovo screens are washed out, but I didn’t find that to be the case with the X61. It does look a little faded when the screen is mostly white, but colors come through just fine. Especially impressive is that there’s no graininess issue with the screen that I’ve seen on just about every other dual touch screen and pen enabled Tablet I’ve tested. The only real issue I had was with the screen’s brightness. Even when set on the highest setting it was a little dim, which is probably why the screen looks washed out to many users.

The X61’s touchscreen is great, it is very responsive to the touch of your finger. It also has Wacom active pen technology, so you can choose between input methods of pen or finger. The screen converts into Tablet mode with no problems, thanks to the secure hinge, which pivots 180 degrees clockwise. Once in Tablet mode the screen automatically adjusts itself to Tablet orientation or you can choose how you want the screen to be with the touch of a button.
