t440s upgrades

#1 Post by mzezelj » Thu Nov 23, 2017 7:19 am

Hello,

I recently got my first thinkpad - t440s and i'd like to replace that awful 1600x900 screen and touchpad.
Is aliexpress ok site to buy part(s) from I was thinking of buying touchpad there:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Three-K ... 98840.html

and screen from laptopscreens:

Welcome to the Forum.

Aliexpress is often a roll of the dice, but often cheaper than elsewhere.

And if you read Laptopscreens's description:
- New Grade A+
brand new part made by one of the above mentioned major manufacturer.
you never know WHAT you get from that outfit! I'd say: avoid!

For the LCD replacement, see this: https://thinkpadmint.blogspot.co.uk/201 ... t440s.html

Thanks, glad to join you.

But where should i buy AUO screen? anywhere where i can be 100% certain that i'll get that exact screen and not say LG one?

I guess i'll buy touchpad then from aliexpress, it has 44 feedbacks and all of them are positive.

found this
http://www.lcd4laptop.co.uk/ibm-lenovo- ... creen.html

ANd got confirmation from them:
We currently have the AUO in stock, however the part number we have is B140HAN01.3 which should and will not make a difference and will work with your laptop.

so i'm going for it. i hope it will work as expected. also bought that touchpad. fingers crossed :)

mzezelj , Any feedback on the replacement Touchpad? I've carried a Thinkpad since the T20 days and I'm dying with the Touchpad on my T440!
