Horizontal absolute max is 301mm. Vertical is 203mm. 191mm from webcam's plastic bottom to bottom of the lid. 176mm from webcam to hinges. 188mm from top to hinges.

So, it seems I got a W21 instead of a W11. Not much info on that panel neither, but CHECK THIS OUT ! Google found me a guy that says it's the panel from the 2016 xps. Pretty sure the plug being 1" further will mean my extender won't be long enough and I'll have to find another cable though.

Check the distance between the edge (right) and display protector (left) !

Will test tomorrow and post more pictures.

I was right. F**k that W03.

Yay for having room on either side, that W21 should fit with enough room for a pet ferret. Those things fit everywhere!
The only acceptable use for a MacBook is to shop for a Thinkpad.

There's too many TouchPads. Too many MacBooks. Making too many problems. And not much nubs to go round. Can't you see this is the Land of Confusion.

It does save 6mm (2 more than what I was able to recover modding the W03) and will allow for clips on the bezel sides. It also means we could focus on building a kit instead of talking about ferrets.

I'm a little confused by all the different models in here. What's the model number of the current screen you are using, is it LQ133M1JW21? Is it a matt panel too?

They both seem to be different revisions of the same screen. I ordered a W11 and received a W21. It is matte. Ebay seller listed LTN133HL10 as a compatible model but no mention of the W21. I don't really care at that point, panel works and fits. If someone manages to find a datasheed for any of those I'll be very grateful.

After a bit of research it seems the 11 is used in the xps 9343 and the 21 in the 9350. Check reviews on those (FHD non touch) for a bit more specs. This one has good info.

I did some fitting tests to show more precisely what space is available. You could trim those clips by less than 0.5mm on one side and the panel will fit in-between. Panel is just a hair shorter than 299mm.

Cable IS too short even with the side switcher. I might go the ghetto way and just chain 2 switchers together.

Thanks for the info.
I can't seem to find the same screen as you without it being a gloss panel. I'll keep an eye on ebay.

Edit:
I did a little bit more research into the panel I mentioned previously from the ideaPad 710s. It seems it's model number LQ133m1jw15 and looks like the connector is in the same position as on the OEM X2xx screens.
Here's some info on it.

Glossy is the assembly with touchscreen. Panel itself is matte.

Looking at that W15, not much details, but sellers mention the equivalent LP133WF4 SPB1 that is listed at 300.26mm wide. AFAIK it should fit.

Good info, thanks.
Maybe I'll borrow the 710s screen for testing and if it works in the lid then I'll buy another.

I've been trying to find this W11 panel on ebay and the likes with no success. Is there an alternative model number for it or something? Any links to where you bought yours?

One left. This the one I bought, you might get a W21.
Edit : mine was 78.90$ US, not 99$.
