Not all X200 tablets come with the AFFS+ screens, I think the cheapest
one (non-multitouch, non-LED) has a transmissive SIPS panel (good
panel, but for indoor-use only).

I'm not sure, but I think both LED displays, the standard UltraBright
and the MultiTouch variants, should have Boe Hydis panels.
