    HI Charles,

    Thanks for the positive feedback! I agree that Dell should have an option for 13.3" LCD, they definitely had the space. I started this mod on a Latitude E7250, but my daughter snagged it off of me and a found a cheap E7270 on eBay. The E7250 has a REALLY terrible 1366x768 BOE panel that has a viewing angle of 25/25/25/25! How Dell justifies putting such a low end screen on a high end laptop is beyond me!

    My current plan is to learn a 3D CAD program and 3D print a bezel so that I can get a proper fit. I will update when I make some progress.

    (EDIT) This mod will work on a E7250

    This is very cool!! For some time I was really considering trying to do this with a 13.1" LCD in a thinkpad. The 13.1" LCDs from the old sony Vaio laptops have excellent color gamut and are EDP.
