Best display options (including mods) in 200s and 201s?

#1 Post by wujstefan » Wed Jan 11, 2017 4:28 am


A X200s is on its way and also am almost-complete buying a X201s here from the forum member, however I'd like to ask you for some help modding the display.
I'm looking for just as-bright-as-possible IPS option for those. I believe there may be some lid problem since for both "s" units these are thinner - would X200 and X201 lid respectively fit? Also, the source for those would most likely be X200t (at least I guess), but is the swap pretty straightforward or does it need some more effort to fit them?
T601f, X61sfL - work
HP Elitebook 8740w - multimedia
R61f - wife
R61f - kids
T43, Z60t, G41, R30, R50e
Under construction:
A31, 600X, R52p, T22, A22m, R40, T30

The X200s/X201s lids are indeed thinner, and the WXGA+ versions also do NOT have a webcam, due to their LED-backlight.
I have an original X200s with LED WXGA+, as well as "regular" X200 and X201 machines, both with X200s lid (LED WXGA+).
The Tablets have a webcam and AFAIK are only WXGA.
