According to available data a QXGA display version was never available, not even for CTO.
Just because the HMM lists something, does not mean it was ever used in any shipping model.

AFAIK the QXGA display was only corporate option, not for public buyers. But good news are, that you can do the upgrade yourself, the QXGA LCD itself is needed, new inverter and LCD cable, also new LCD hinges are recommended, but that's not necessary, price of parts needed for this upgrade is nowadays about $500. This is not my personal experience, but several people here: forum.thinkpads.com did it succesfully. The R50p is IMHO the only one thinkpad that could go QXGA.
