Is it possible to have the display (/monitor) upgraded to multitouch?

Hello,

 

I've just received my W510 and so far I'm very happy with it.

 

Though due to a little misleading text in the specs "Easy-to-use touch-screen technology on W510" of the Ebay auction, I have bought a model without touch input. This is quite sad for me because that's the main reason I really wanted the laptop, to develop multi touch software.

 

So now I was hoping that, since my display specs "15.6" FHD Display (95% Gamut, 270nit) with LED Backlight" are nearly identical to the touch display, that it might be possible to have it serviced to upgrade the screen.

I also noticed that the service & repair manual has a section on swapping the screen.

 

Therefore I'm hoping that someone here could confirm that this upgrade is possible?

 

*keeping my fingers crossed*

 

Kind regards,

 

Jochen

I don't think Lenovo will upgrade the screen for you and the two screens are not "nearly identical".

 

To replace your current LCD with the multitouch LCD, you'll need the following parts:

 

  • 60Y5483 LCD bezel assembly (touch panel)
  • 60Y5487 Hinge kit (touch panel)
  • 60Y5481 LCD rear cover assembly (touch panel)
  • 63Y2126 LED board kit, touch panel
  • 13N7276 LCD module, 15.6-inch FHD LED-backlight, with touch panel

It's not just the panel itself.

Wow, thanks a lot for the fast reply. I don't mind doing it myself as I guess this laptop is much easier to disassemble compared to my previous one (being a 13" sony vaio). Mind if I ask how you know about this? Perhaps you have alread gone through the procedure?

 

If it might be quite tricky I guess I can always ask a retailer.

And really, thanks heaps mr.!! Appreciate your reply a whole lot! :smileyhappy:

Best wishes,

Jochen
