Buyer remorse P70 w/ FHD screen... is it possible to upgrade to 4K?

#1 Post by gugam » Wed Jul 03, 2019 8:33 am

I got a pretty sweet deal on eBay and ended up buying a P70 w/ i7, 32Gb Ram, 512 Gb SSD in mint condition.
The only drawback is the screen: FHD - and it seems a bad one. The colors are dull (comparing to my LG Gram 2018 15") and I was thinking about to replace it to a 4K panel.
Found a new one on https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/mo ... o/THINKPAD P70 SERIES/ but when it comes to finding out what display cable to buy it gets complicated.
All the sellers that I found on eBay and Aliexpress can't guarantee that it would work (they don't explain why).

Can someone help?

Someone had apparently successfully upgraded P71 from FHD to UHD (aka 4K) LCD screen here:

(Suggest that you comment/reply to above thread, instead of this one).

Good luck!
