I've got a 15" IBM Thinkpad T42P with lots of cracking on the plastic case which I'd like to fix/replace. The screen is good, the motherboard is good... it's just the lower case that needs attention.
I'd like to find a broken/for parts unit and salvage what I need. Which model could I buy as a parts unit and swap this thing's motherboard + screen/lid onto?
I'm imagining i could find a T41/T42/T43 but i'm not sure what would be compatible. It's not too likely I'll find an exact model match for me to get parts from.
What I've got specifically:
T42p 2379-DYU, 15" flexview IPS UXGA, 1.8GHz dothan, 128mb FireGL

These parts are all interchangeable (except integrated or discrete fans).
You can also get manuals for doing this from the HMM link above.
Lenovo: X240, X250, T440p, M900 Tiny (all with W7/SP1)
