IBM laptop usually means that have S-IPS matrix with “p” after the number of the standard model, for example Thinkpad T40p, T41p, T42p, T43p, R50p. Like most “p”-th in the electronic equipment and that means Professional, and unlike other companies, making it a pseudo-professional performances, IBM has made professional machine with resolution 1600 * 1200, professional S-IPS matrix video card for 3D and CAD (ATI FireGL). IBM produces and workstations with 1400 x 1050 S-IPS matrix, and good video card ATI Radeon no great claims for 3D design, which is also the protagonist in this review. Actually there is much information on the Internet for modification of the drivers of the mobile in a mobile Radeon FireGL.
