I recently purchased a Lenovo Thinkpad W540, i7-4700MQ, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB drive, with a 15.5" IPS 2880x1620 non-glare display. Also came with a built-in xRite color sensor. The display and sensor was a big selling point for me and it works great.
I have had issues with the Intel 7260 single-band wifi card. Might want to try a different one.
Be careful. Do some research first. If it's not a Lenovo approved card, the BIOS will not allow it to work. Your best best is to get it replaced under warranty first or switch to a different WiFi module that Lenovo sells for that laptop.
For a WiFi card? Interesting. I didn't realize that laptop manufacturers put that kind of control on upgrades. I assume they do this to force you to buy their recommended parts instead of cheaper ones?
