    I'm just curious because I really couldn't find much detail. Is there any possibility of transferring a panel such as the one below from a P750DM2/33G machine into the NH58AF1 model? I really like the 4K panel, and it would be nice to avoid dropping to 1080p.

    Sure. Take the panel ID's from each and compare them on panelook.com and if the outline size matches it's a simple swap.

    Verify the cabling pins / GPU support for 4K and it's a done deal.

    I don't yet have a NHF58AF1 in front of me, to check, and that's what I was struggling to get data about online. I was thinking ahead of a potential purchase.

    You're welcome. Sadly the panel you want to swap in would require some modifications to make it fit. However as you can see there are plenty of options that are brighter, more colors, more contrast, etc. Even a couple of 120hz options if you want them / can find them in stock somewhere. The 4K you have now will help when selling the old laptop if you're in a position to do so.

    In most cases moving old stuff to new chassis is an option unless you run into size differences along w/ mounting issues. When I picked mine up w/ edp cable it was about $150 from CN which wasn't too bad considering US sellers were marking them up to about the same w/o the cable and substituting them for lower spec models as "compatible".

    If you're patient with the adhesive strips when removing them from the existing panel you can reuse them with the new one w/o having to order DS Tape as a replacement. If you have special needs other than what I pointed out like G-Sync or something else just open the comparison link and look around the top 5 lines and it will show features / options I didn't fit into the snapshot comparison.

    Just be sure to get a listing for a guaranteed model and not a "compatible replacement" that will be worse. Look for it in the fine print.
