Thinkpad x201 display mod (1900*1200 panel)

I found a interesting link where it sells a panel for X210. Does it fit into X201 with alternation? I mean x210 is almost new model using only thinkpad x201 chassis. it replaces motherboard with cpu as well so I have to buy all of them separately. that is too expensive.

699 Chinese yuan is around $120. this is not bad deal, in my opinion.

I would like to know whether I can install this panel into x201 model.

I appreciate your opinion in advance.

Not without extensive mods.

IIRC that screen has an eDP (embedded DisplayPort) link, whereas the X201's LCD has an LVDS link.

You'd need to make an adapter board similar to nitrocaster's X220/X230 Full HD kit, which uses the Displayport signals from the docking connector.

I feel you man, I like the display mods too.

If it didn't require a stupidly high level of ECE knowledge and fab building to do, I'd take an approximately sized screen and put it into my PC110.

For now, my best X200 machine has an X201 i5 mobo and an X200 AFFS LED screen.
