This thread here shows that it's possible to insert a wqxga screen. Does anyone know where to buy the pcb online?

It's a 3:2 tablet screen requiring bezel modification and by the task manager photo, it does look like it's on an X201 and not the X210.

I did order one and it is just on the way atm, I did order via superbuy.com, but as far as I know it will not just work with a x201 since it also requires you to have the custom 51nb motherboard with a 8th generation intel CPU.

The edp connector on the standard x201 mother board is not usable with this screen as far as I know. So this is why x210 is written what is the name for the mod with custom motherboard.

-> Had another looks seems to be another mod this one, I got https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=560085475223 that screen.
