Z60m replacement screen

#1 Post by wujstefan » Fri Aug 11, 2017 4:36 pm

Hello,

I've got a dirt cheap titanium Z60m ($6), but it has its screen smashed. What are the options for this one? Will a screen from R61 or T500 work with Z60m?

According to Thinkwiki, yes you can. https://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/TFT_display

All of the above, and everything ThinkPad-based 15.4" in between...so yes, you've got quite a few options available.

Just dont pick the 1280x800 one :)

RBS Strongly recommends sharp WUXGA LCDs. Search the forums for the exact models.

The only problem's name is availability when it comes to decent shape. It's the likes of $80 with shipping :S
