Look on Lenovo's website in the PSREF files for the models you want to check.
Their OS is in there.

Re: X1 (2011, 1291) alternative LCD display?

I don't know about all LVDS cables being the same or not, they probably are.
But you must check first if the pinouts are the same!
That's your homework...

Maybe HD/SSD 'roaming' without bumpers? If so, correct and reseat.

Re: Thoughts on the T440 and T450 quality

The T440p and T450p have an optical drive, which you can replace with a 3rd adapter+HD/SSD.
Their cardreader is connected with a flex flat cable, so no go for #4.

Take the CD drive out and see if the T41 starts then without error.
For only a few dollar you get another drive.
Those things can last 1 day, or 1 month, or 10 years, potluck I'd say.

Re: Thoughts on the T440 and T450 quality

Since you seem to be in the know, why are there so many throwaway Lenovo lines, starting with nearly every letter of the alphabet?
They could save a lot of money by dumping at least half of those, and spend the saved money to improve keyboard and screens.
