Hi
Can you mod the display to full HD?
Would be interested in that.

This is sadly not possible currently, it would need a similar mod to X230 and that is possible, but there is not enough market for this. I think if there was like 50 users who want it, We could most likely have it made. But on top of that, you would need to transplant the touch layer from the original machine which is pretty non-trivial. I did it a bunch of times, but ideally you would need clean room. I have developed home-made technique to do it with almost perfect result, but it still requires a tonne of work.

So mod board that steals lines display port lines from docker port, custom cable, BIOS mod, screen that fits the original (making it 13" or something would require even more work considering the touch screen has 12.5" size), transplantation of a touch layer etc. I would think $300 for that alone, and you would need volume like 50 people to even make it viable to develop a custom board.

Any chance that I can buy the motherboard seperately? If so, how much would it cost?
