At this moment I'm seeing a Macbook Pro with a gorgeous bright screen compared to my dull T61 SXGA+ which cranked at maximum brightness it seems as if it's on the lowest brightness setting in the Mac.

Which of the new Thinkpad models sport a screen comparable in quality to those found in a Mac? I like the high-res display on my machine, but working with lots of indoor lightining makes you feel the machine is 'old'.

T61 8897-CTO:
Penryn T8100 2.10GHz | G.Skill 4GB RAM | Hitachi 5K500.B-250 HDD | 14.1" SXGA+ | GMA X3100 | 6-cell Battery | Windows XP SP3 |||Past: T42p, T30, A22e

At work one of the laptop models we support are the T400's. That particular model featured a LED backlight inside the LCD display. For us, that model was the first Lenovo laptop to feature this. I always thought the screen on those was nice and bright when compared to our other models (T60/T61). But seeing as I am not a Mac person in general, and we are not a Mac shop, I can't say how this compares to your Macbook. But I would think anything as new as (and newer) than a T400 with a LED backight would yield a brighter screen.

T42 (type 2373)
T43 (type 2668) x2
T60 (type 2007)
