    I got this panel here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N6V59E9/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    You can find it on Ebay for about $20 less, but I paid extra for the Amazon prime delivery. You don't need a new cable either, as both panels are 30 pin eDP. The swap is easy, and only takes 4 screws. If you need a guide on how to replace the panel, I recommend following this video:

    This isn't the exact same model, but the chassis is identical, and comes apart exactly the same way as the W650KK1. I will say, even with the new panel being a TN panel, it's actually quite a bit brighter, and the colors are not as bad as that extremely cheap IPS panel either. Viewing angles are poorer, but only if you are sitting at an odd angle when using the laptop. The biggest difference is smoothness in motion, which is worlds better than the stock IPS panel. The stock panel gave me a headache when testing out games like Overwatch, and this new panel has fixed that entirely. Shame we can't get the G-Sync functionality of the panel working, but for $130, was a worthwhile upgrade.

    i had already swapped Displays in my W230SS so this shoulden't be much different. The problem will be to get this B156HTN05.2 Display in my country (Germany) yes G-Sync will not work because of missing Licence in the NVIDIA VBios and there is no DISCRETE mode for the iGPU. Sadly its sold out only one ebay note (shipping from the US).

    Is there any similar Model that would be easier for me to get my hands on and that will fit 1:1?

    *damn i even had had this display in my P651-HP6-G should have swapped out before selling it ;-D

    No, the chipset needs to be z370 for the 8th gen, Intel have locked it.

    not excuses for Intel, that's a gimmick for making more money :(
    AMD is using a different policy , new ryzen 2xxx are compatible with old motherboard and AMD is also sending a cpu for making the Bios update :)

    coffee lake cpus are not compatible because Intel doesn't permit that, so 7700k is the top for this laptop

    The 7700 is the highest officially supported CPU due to the cooling system.
