The LCD for the ThinkPad 701C contains over 921000 thin film transistors (TFTs).
A small number of missing, discolored, or lighted dots (on all the time) is characteristic of TFT LCD technology, but excessive pixel problems can cause viewing concerns. The LCD should be replaced if the number of missing or discolored, or lighted dots in any background is 21 or more.
