From a 14.1" non-widescreen T61 you need: motherboard + CPU + PC Card/ExpressCard (or PC Card/Smart Card) slot + possibly fan.
Preferably get a T500/W500 fan.

In the short term, I'm going to figure out how to get that wonderful HYDIS 150UX2-100 display into the T60, which I plan on using as a laptop for free-writing and journaling.
The Lenovo bug really bit me hard. In addition to the T60, I have a T460p coming for image-editing muscle, and a T61 Penryn Widescreen for permanent docking with an Imacon Flextight Scanner. All my Mac products will be vacating my setup in the coming months, with the exception of a 2007 Black Macbook I like to rip vinyl records to using 32-bit Windows 10 and Soundbooth. (This was my first "hack", getting Windows 10 to run on the 2007 Macbook, which is an aesthetic favorite). Lenovo just feels "right" as far as what I want for the next decade. I love my T60's screen format and chunky-styling, which really gets reactions from the Apple-crowd I tend to run with. Nothing but disparaging remarks and odd looks. It's perfect.
Please note master Natakranta pleased with his HYDIS 150UX1-100 (clone?): link. CCFL not LED of course.
In either case please let us know which one you end up buying and your impressions!
