    can you tell me exactly which zbook model you have?

    also your zbook is eDP but i think our 8570w with the normal 1080 screen is LVDS ?? only the dreamcolor screens are eDP right?

    i dont care about their quality. i just want edp screen so that a 1060m will work.

    i am also thinking of going 980m . i can find ones for 350Euro . i think they wouyld work ok but i dont know if i will have to buff the cooling more...
    after seeing benches , a 980m is the same as a 1060m ... so why the hassle going for a 1060m (except the lower TDP of the 1060)

    do you have a thread for your 1060m upgraded zbook? so i can see pics and stuff..

    Zbook 15 G1 aka HP 1909

    The original dreamcolor screens are 50 pin LVDS IIRC as a result Zbooks up to gen 2 iirc need an eDP to 50pin LVDS converter to use Dreamcolor Screens

    Additionally the dreamcolor screens used after the 2nd gen zbooks use a totally different screen that has a smaller color space
