I've got a W701DS with colorimeter and tablet. I wasn't planning to sell, but I could be convinced if the price is right.

Always cool to see one of these go up for sale. What specs does it have?

I found one a few weeks ago, prior to the above offer. It is a W701 with a 920XM and an FX 3800M in excellent condition. I changed the screen to a Dreamcolor 1.

How the hell did you do that? What screen did you use?

That makes sense, as some of the W701 models were configured with a 1920x1200 8-bit RGB-LED (not WLED) TN display panel. A DreamColor 2 swap would've been a different story, considering that those panels are 10 bits wide.

Where did you source this screen? Can't find one anywhere (for a reasonable cost). Also was that you who won the W701ds lid auction on eBay?

Is there any way to tell which ones have a dreamcolor just by looking at the display assembly?

I believe the dreamcolor models have a small symbol in the upper right of the display assembly. It looks like a small, multicolored circle/wheel.

I bought a third party colorimeter, and use displaycal software.
