I've been looking at several X220's on eBay and unless the buyer mentions it has an IPS screen, how would one be able to tell by the specs? Any key things to look for? I really need IPS and would hate to Find I'd just won one without. Thanks!

Get the model + serial number from the seller, and put that into Lenovo's parts lookup tool. That'll show what parts the machine shipped with.
