    For example the Toshiba Netbook 500 series screen is 1024x600. Does anyone know of a 1366 x 768 screen that would work?

    Note that there was a matte and glossy version if you have a preference.

    And keep us updated. I'd like to know! I guess worse case you can always sell the screen on eBay for $25-30 and get a little money back, or maybe they take returns with restocking fee, I dunno.

    Well I chose a matte screen since it's going to be on the go with lots of light everywhere. I also did their $5 return for any reason insurance, so we will see! I will keep you guys updated :D

    Ok just did it and it went flawlessly without any problems. The standard LCD was a LG and they sent me an LG, hooked it up, everything works no problem! Sees the 1366 x 768 no problem. Took like 10 minutes so have fun!
