For the 1366x768p IPS screens, see https://thiccpad.blogspot.com.

From the looks of it, the LG125WH2-SLT1 is the winner.
thank you for this, what concerns me is that this panel is listed on some auctions like led non ips panel which is kind of strange to me :?

Good news! The 4th batch is in production now. Assembled PCBs are expected to be ready by September.
how much it will cost with shipping to europe, will it work with 2k mod? will it upgrade the lap to have another msata and usb 3.0 or something like that?

daisy chaining is not exactly the correct term.. multiple monitors would be more exact IMO which is what i did with the T40 series experiment years ago and at that time i used DELL displays..
what kind of dell display do you recommend
