Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I finally got my conversion kit, but I'm a little afraid of installing it at this point... Is there a place in San Diego that can install it for me? I still need to order a screen and I'm not sure which model to go for. What have I gotten myself into! Or am I overthinking it and it's not too hard.

Just read the first post. Oh I did read it, are you saying I'm too late? If so, I may as well just order the $80 factory replacement screen? Screen is still working just damaged, so I don't mind the wait unless you don't think there will a 3rd run. In which case I am thinking I may just buy a new l...

Do I need to trim my bezel if I just buy the screen linked (does not sound like it). If I can't get this upgrade I might be interested in buying someones X220 IPS s...

X61S Ultralight Screen issues.

About a year ago, I spilled part of my after work beer on my x61s, while reaching for something at my desk. I freaked out and flipped the laptop over to be sure that nothing would leak in through the keyboard. This was a HUGE mistake. I took the laptop apart and there was virtually nothing except a ...

I'm considering just buying a used laptop and taking the screen from that since it's about the same cost as jus...

I emailed them before I purchased and they gave me 20% off and I ended up getting my case before I even got the laptop. I'm sure it was just a mistake and they will fix it for you they were very prompt returning my emails. Maybe they will give you a discount for the hassle.
