T430 swap 16:10 from T410

#1 Post by wotek16 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 8:17 am

Hi

is there any way to swap 16:10 1440x900 screen with bezel and frame to T430 16:9? Have you ever seen that?

Thanks

Wojciech

I doubt that very much.
The lids have different dimensions, the hinges are different, and most important:
the LCD connectors on the motherboard are completely different.

This is the biggest problem.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

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.

Wow, hope you merely digitally edited your photo, and did not actually mark up your Thinkpads for the sake of demonstration ;)

I thought that it would be like classic keyboard swap from T410/420.

Thank you for support

Wojciech
