Apple kept the display on the new MacBook Pro mostly the same, with one exception: the company has brought its vibrant "True Tone" display technology from the iPhone to the MacBook Pro screen.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro is the highest-res option in our comparison, with resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 pixels. The 13-inch model offers 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. Both models offer high brightness of up to 500 nits.

Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon display falls in between the two sizes of the MacBook Pro, at 14 inches. The X1 Carbon offers lower resolution and brightness at the starting point -- 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and brightness of 300 nits. Notably, however, that configuration offers a touch screen option, while the MacBook Pro display is non-touch.

Other choices for the X1 Carbon screen include a 2,560 x 1,440 non-touch display, with brightness of 300 nits, and a 2,560 x 1,440 non-touch display with 500 nits of brightness and support for colorful Dolby Vision HDR technology.
