    You're late to that party:

    Looking forward to the full writeup, I'm still trying to decide if it's worth it for me to invest in the eGPU route. I don't game that much, but it would be nice.

    Its worth it, but wait for the PE4L 2.1. Theres too much stutter without PCIe 2.0.

    Buying the screen from ebay is a bit of a gamble. You might get a "compatible" part even on listings that say IPS screen specifically. And then there are listings that don't list IPS specifically but then the part number matches perfectly. This is why I didn't put any links on my IPS screen thread - don't want to get blamed if someone received the wrong part.

    When I searched for the part, laptopscreen.com was actually the first hit for only $69. I emailed and asked if it's the EXACT part I'll be getting, they told me no, just a "compatible" part.

    Could you give us the part number for the one that you used? I'm so tempted to do this...

    LP125WH2(SL)(B1). I don't know how many different IPS panels there are. I know for a fact LP125WH2(TL)(B1) is NOT an IPS panel, I found out the hard way.

    There are a few of those on ebay, actually for a couple of different laptops as well. I'd probably only go with the model for the x220 since it's been done already, and at $133 it's incredibly tempting...I keep buying things I don't need, but I did just sell my E6410 for more than I bought my E6220 for...
