Title. Have a dead W700 and there's a board for a W700ds on eBay.

The screw mounts' position seems to be identical, so it should fit in your W700 without a problem.

The only visible difference that I had noticed, was the lack of a miniature 30-pin LVDS connector that is located at the right side of the DisplayPort connector.

I'm putting a W700ds board into a W700, so it should work fine. Thanks for checking the mounts
