Re: do i have the correct "upgraded" screen?

I agree. I'd done a t420s and my present T430 with the FHD mod, but was always curious as to how good an alternative the Alienware screen was, given the lower price and it's a simple drop in replacement. The chance to buy a cheap T430 with a broken screen meant I could find out. Certainly much bett...

Yes, it is just a case of plug and play.

Regarding the BIOS update, no, as far as I know. Using Lenovo's system update application to update the BIOS is very much similar to updating the BIOS in DOS, so I don't see a problem in that.
thank you
