    I actually have x200 I just did the mod on. The screen is noticeably glossy, I don't know how people deal with it. It's fine indoors but outside it gets very noticeable.

    What are the HP Envy 14 Spectre, and Alienware M14x panel numbers? Need to track these down if those two laptops are going to be of any use to us.



    Alienware M14x
    According to the PcMag review, the Alienware M14x screen is quite impressive:
    According to the LaptopMag review:

    HP Envy 14 Spectre
    Engadget review:
    Very good, if this is true.

    So these two displays seem like excellent candidates, along with the X1C.

    Update:

    Hmm all the resellers on eBay have no shortage of the LP140WD2(TL)(B1) panel, but they label it as from t420!

    LP140WD2 TL B1 | eBay

    Any reason why it's claimed to be from a t420? Is it just a series of mass mis-labelings?

    Meawhile, a search for "x1 carbon screen" returns nothing....

    That's because you don't want the B1 but the E2 version : LP140WD2-TLE2

    I would like to try the LP140WD2-TLE2 swap in my T420. I'm really tired of my crappy AUO, and am willing to kill it with fire when I manage to get the X1c display to work.

    I see these screens in UK and European online shops for about 100EUR, and it seems to me I would be willing to take a bite. The only concern left for me is whether the LCD is whitelisted in BIOS or not? Can somebody shed some light on this?

    Cheers!

    I don't think anyone knows at this point... My current T430s will be returned so I have a while to wait before I could do this upgrade. Your willingness to possibly take one for the team is appreciated... Do post of your exploits should you go forward... (The more pictures you post the more rep power you'll get...)

    I can't confirm for the T430 but on the T420 I did managed to use a non approved glossy panel on my T420 and it works fine. The T420 didn't seem to care what panel you used as long it has the right LVDS connector... well under my observation anyway.

    X1 LCD screen thickness is different, so it won't fit in the T430 or T430s.

    @LEAD_ORG: From all I've seen, Carbon's lid appears thinner than that of T4x0? What's the source of your information?

    @Hearst: Thanks! I'm moving soon, so can't deal with this right now - but I'm definitely going to give it a shot in January!

    Cheers!

    But the T420(s)/T430(s) all use Slim-LCDs. Or are there even slimer LCDs than slim-LCDs?
