WXGA screen upgrade?

#1 Post by screenshot » Wed Jul 08, 2020 5:38 pm

wonder if i can upgrade a WXGA(1280x800) screen to WXGAp, WXGAppHD(1600x900) or WSXGAp(1680x1050)?
the original code is this, but it doesn't show any compatible screens with resolution upgrades at all:

so maybe i just have to search via the resolution numbers and see on the picture if the connectors fit at all?

What machine is this?

14.1" wide screens were available in two resolutions only: WXGA (1280x800) and WXGA+ (1440x900).

14.1" Wide is the term used to distinguish 14.1" 16:10 screens from 14.1" 4:3 screens, or in retroactive nomenclature 14.1" Standard screens, which also share the 14.1" diagonal.

You may not know this off the top of your head yet, but "WQHD" is 2560x1440 which is a 16:9 aspect ratio resolution. The fact that a screen like this exists which also shares a 14.1" diagonal does not at all change the meaning of 14.1" Wide, as defined in the previous paragraph, because in practice, all 14.1" Wide laptops ever produced had 16:10 screens.

And no 14.1" Wide ThinkPad ever had a resolution other than 1280x768, 1280x800, or 1440x900.
