    Hello everyone,

    I have been looking around the internet for hours now with no luck for anyone who have successfully replaced their X61s thinkpad's display with an IPS one or similar technology, what I would like to now is:

    -First of all, is there even an LCD around that can fit gracefully into the X61s' cover? I say gracefully because I read somewhere that the X61 Tablet's display can be fitted into the X61s mind you with some compromise as it seems, though I could be wrong about this so please correct me if you know something.

    -What am looking for is a high quality XGA display and not an SXGA, does this make it any easier to achieve?

    -..... I guess that's it, any help is appreciated.

    welcome to the forum!

    it's not an easy mod by any means but it has been done before...

    forum.thinkpads.com • View topic - SXGA+ on a X60s (non tablet)

    the XGA mod is just as difficult as the same amount of physical modifications are necessary.   the only difference is that the XGA panel doesn't need a special BIOS to drive the display.
