x61 stock screen replacement (non tablet version)

Hey all, I don't want to mess with finding the fancy screen or ordering the conversion cable to put an ips screen in this thing. The guides are out there but I have trouble easily tracking down the parts. I am happy enough with my x61 stock screen but it has some bad white spots. Where can I get the...

Is this x301 screen replacement correct?

Hey all, I got an x301 yesterday and what a cool computer! I want to replace the screen asap. How does this one look? Is this correct? Is it just me, or does it look like the screen has been brushed/scratched with a cloth? https://www.ebay.com/itm/362189417901?_trksid=p11400.c100710.m5035&_trkparms=...

Re: WTB: upgraded x61 display

If I got a hold of an affs screen and a convert cable for it, is that all I'd need to upgrade the display myself? Or would that require the same hacking as retrofitting an old sxga or ips display into it?

Re: WTB: upgraded x61 display

Was the mod really hard to do? If I take my time and follow the instructions (for the led daylight kit) is it fairly straightforward? I've read through the instructions a few times over the past couple months. I'm afraid to give it a go but I'm fairly handy so I think I could take a stab at it... i ...

Re: WTB: upgraded x61 display

I've checked that out a couple of times actually. If I were to do that, I'd like a fresh screen with not white spots before going through all of that.

Have you ever performed this mod? Is there a place just to buy fresh/new standard x61 screens?

WTB: upgraded x61 display

Hi all, I have a 2.4ghz x61 that I LOVE but I'd really like a better screen for this thing. Not sure what all the options are that are out there but I figured maybe I could find some sellers and learn a thing or two in the meantime. I don't know if I can handle the modification myself. Thanks for yo...
