I'm sure this has been done, tried and asked many times, since the T400/R400 screens look to be interchangeable.... but I can't find the answer.

If you stick a T400 screen on an R400 bottom, do you end up with an R400 with a working bezel camera???

2nd question... If the answer to the above is "yes", is adding the T400 screen to an R400 the exact equivalent to a factory stock T400... or is the R400 that much different? :D

Hi, I've done this few times and I can confirm it works.
R400 will fit with T400 screen smoothly and You will end up with R400 with webcam.
All it needs is one screwdriver and 10 minutes spare time.
