    Yes P650 mechanical design is much stronger specially if you are planning to carry around. N15x is more like desktop replacement laptop. How long are you planning to keep your laptop? If for longer then you should consider GPU/CPU upgradeable like Eurocom Tornado F5.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I'm planning on keeping this for as long as I can (my current laptop is a 10 year old toaster) but ideally it should last me for 5/6 years. It is going to see a lot of moving around: mostly from home to space constrainted places like labs and library tables; so something I can lug around would be nice. I like the tornado.. but it is really a big boy. I think I'd hate carrying it 2h a day everyday in the underground or trying to make room for it in the lab..

    Another option is Monster 4 - we will update this model soon to Kaby Lake CPU and NV 10 series GPU

    Your panel should have a model number on the back, if you look it up by that there's usually a connection type listed, for example: LVDS 40 pins. A replacement would need to match that to be compatible at all (adapters are rarely a good idea internally in laptops due partly to space requirements). Most 16:9 panels that are 15.6" and 17.3" are about the same thickness but a site like panelook.com will have specifics on dimensions and screw placement for comparison just in case.

    If you're just wanting to know in case your LCD burns out or ends up damaged, you can use HWiNFO64 (free download) to tell you the make and model of your LCD - that or just pull it out and look at the sticker on the back, then search online for the same one.

    If you're thinking more in the way of upgrading, then specs are kind of up to you. :vbsmile: Do make sure you match the connector (eDP), though, and look for a panel that has it in the same area as your original panel (otherwise the cable may not reach). Research things like physical dimensions and screw placement before buying, too!

    So, to upgrade the panel, one must mind:
    1. Connector type and its pins
    2. Screen dimensions
    3. Screen screw holes

    Is that it? No tdp or voltage incompatibilities to worry about?

    Also, are screen thickness, size and screw holes' position standardised?

    Thanks for the info, guys
