Does the M18x have a IPS screen? I am reading is does, but can't find anything solid on it.

From what I've Google'd............. I think it's a Twisted nematic (TN) screen.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LCD#Twisted_nematic_.28TN.29

Found this http://forum.notebookreview.com/alienware-m18x/640961-m18x-ips-rgbled-color-quality.html it talks abit about it.

from 5th post:

shows an IPS RGBLED on the left side (HP 8760w) and the stock (TN) M18x screen on the right.

but I suspect you already know this Mr."tommyxv". :mad:


But I bet you didn't find this! http://www.anandtech.com/show/4897/alienwares-m18x-part-1-nvidias-geforce-gtx-580m-in-sli/6
It's not taking the prize for "best notebook screen" away from a monster like HP's DreamColor IPS panel, but for a 1080p TN panel the M18x's screen gets the job done and is at least able to handle the lion's share of the sRGB gamut as well. The panel seems to be performing fairly well if closer to the middle of the pack in our comparison here, but keep in mind that the panels we're testing are largely the best of the best,

I thought is was just a TN panel. Why the mad face though? I been talking on NBR for years. ;)

I am searching for a 15" - 18" desktop replacement laptop that has an IPS screen. If the M18x had it, I was gonna buy it tonight. ;)
