Re: Anyone using a Thinkpad T420 for image editing?

The screen is pretty bad for editing, obviously, as is the case with nearly all laptops. I've just replaced my previous Lenovo T400 with a T420. The only issue: I reckon the case is rather flimsy compared with the T400.

Even if you just want to look at images away from home (i.e. away from an external monitor) I'd go for the highest resolution you can afford, if you have the choice. I have a (work-provided) 1366x768, which is pretty bad for any photo work (or anything else other than web browsing, IMHO) but there are also 1600x900 and on the larger ones 1920x1080. The 1600x900 is very little more expensive on most price lists.
