I have been waiting for this moment for years. Finally, I found some seller¨who offers WQHD kit for t420/t420, which allows to connect for example B140QAN01.5.

15,6 inch mod in T420

Hi,
I have t420 with FHD mod and I absolutely love it. I was wondering, if would it be possible to do modification with 15,6 inch display on t420; something similar like t230/t330? The converter board for FHD IPS display 14 inch mod for t420 has same connector as 15,6 display. Will it work?
