Sorry for the rant, I just hope someone figures out a good way to replicate parts.
I do realize that it's probably less durable (and incorrect colour!), but at least you would then have working replacement ThinkPad body parts/panels to work with!
Perhaps even an open-source code of ThinkPad body parts/panels for everyone to download and 3D-Print?
Current Thinkpads: X1E1 | X1C4 | X1C3 | X250 | X230 | T410
Retired Thinkpads: T42 | 560 (circa 1996)

Yes it will be less durable on 99% of printers, seems good in theory but 99% of TP parts are too big for the printer, like the lid and bottom case.
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
There were OEM ones, just not many, it was an expensive mail order/online order option that came out a few years later. Its the entire board you had to buy and install yourself if you could, or bring it to a computer repair shop to have it done. Not many people did that because by the time that was offered (because even at release the 701's were kinda outdated) most people had just gotten a newer laptop or were content with the performance they had. And later if people still wanted to do that, the mod to do it yourself was significantly cheaper and didn't require much work.
Even this board has sadly been modified as someone has changed some stuff to OC it slightly, but it is the original upgrade board from IBM.
