    But I cant afford a new Carbon X1, not in the next couple years. But I want one now, I want HDR and dont want to be missing out on all the great HDR content, along with it makes a much better image editing device. I dont do a lot of batch files, but I do narrow down my shots to keepers that I work on as a hobby.

    Is there any way possible for me to transfer the Gen6 screen to say a gen 4 machine which costs very little used?

    I know with the AW 13 to even contemplate it, that requires the entire chassis, I looked into it, so this might be the same.

    Im a really screen fococussed person. There is no point computing if the screen is not enjoyable.

    I was thinking a Gen4. Are the a connectors the same for each screen? The G4 should put put WQHD.

    Where should I start my investigating?

    My guess would be if you can't afford the X1 Carbon 6th gen, swapping the screen into an older ThinkPad as a way to save money is likely a fool's errand. Perfection, as always, remains elusive. I saw someone post the other day asking how to tone down the HDR screen as it's, by their estimation, over-saturated. There's lot's of notebooks with good screens that don't cost like the X1C.

    To be honest get the WQHD good than enough.
    They both are quite close.
    Just HDR more richer.
