IPS and LED are not mutually exclusive. Most screens nowadays are LCD and use some sort of LED backlight, and the most common types are TN, VA, IPS. TNs are fast and responsive but have bad viewing angles and colour reproduction. VAs are a good middle ground. They have deep blacks and better colour reproduction but aren't as fast. IPS has great viewing angles, great colour reproduction, good blacks (but usually not as good as VA) but are usually a bit slower. Personally, I think unless you're going to do a lot of gaming, IPS is the way to go as there's usually more colour critical tasks then anything else. And when I say slower, the difference is only a few milliseconds so won't make a difference in any everyday task. OLEDs/MiniLEDs/MicroLEDs are a while other set of technologies but they are also LEDs that shine 'organically' so they are self emitting rather than using a backlight. Best blacks, great colour etc. Not sure about speed though. One of the main problems with OLED is screen "burn-in" where if the same image (i.e. TV channel logo) is permanently in the same position, it can scar into the TV panel permanently but it has gotten a lot better over the years. I don't think MiniLED / MicroLED suffers from this but I'm not 100% sure.
Is an IPS screen alot better than an LED screen then?
and its quite a big difference tbh :)
I think the IPS screen is the key difference, too expensive for me though, I pushed my budget for the Curry’s one...
Same spec for £585 from Currys with ASUS10 code. Not quite sure if it's IPS display though. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/asus-vivobook-m431ia-14-laptop-amd-ryzen-7-512-gb-ssd-silver-10208144-pdt.html
