W541 3K screen + touch upgrade

#1 Post by tporter » Sun Mar 10, 2019 12:15 pm

Can anyone confirm that W541 with touchscreen option from the factory really exist?
I see several sellers on ebay have VVX16T028J00 + touch assembly in stock, and they advertise that it's compatible with W541.
For example here.
But
- i can't see this option in PSREF
- no mention of it in HMM (what other parts needed???)

The nearest machine with such a touch-panel option would be the W550s.
AFAIK no W540/W541 has a touch-option.

Hi guys do you know if the 3k screen is a direct swap for the 1080p screen? I can just plug and play it and upgrade the w541 screen resolution?

I did that on my W540 and it worked.

You need an FHD++ 3K eDP 40-pin cable. The standard FHD cable is 30-pin eDP cable.

Funny, but a specification for this item & also lenovo psref don't mention any touchscreen...
Still, seems no one actually own this "magic" model.
