x1 3rd gen screen swap

#1 Post by inogen » Sun May 07, 2017 3:21 pm


I'm thinking of buying a 3rd gen X1, but I'm having a problem finding the spec I want...

256GB, 8GB Ram, i7-5600U and the TN WQHD, non touch.

Was wondering if I manage to snag one with 1900x1600, how easy is it to swap the screen out?

As I myself do not have experience in eye operation (aka swapping LCD monitors), can't help you there!

Good luck!

Note: X1C3 = 20BS or 20BT Machine Types (circa 2015)
