I have an X300 and I had two problems with the screen:
- Cracked screen bezel in the bottom right hand side corner. I think it's related to the opening mechanism and pressures over time.
- Bright white spots on the screen which appeared to be dead LED's!!
Initially, Lenovo Australia didn't want to cover the issues but a few phone calls, "diplomatic" discussions and then escalation, they sent someone on site to replace the bezel and LCD screen!
I've had the X300 for over a year now and you can read about my experiences with the machine here: http://ontargetreviews.blogspot.com/2010/10/is-len

I have taken apart a Thinkpad 240 a few times for such things as eraser head & keyboard fixes, screen fixes, and speaker replacement. From, what I know about that, and thinking of the thin nature of the x300. My thoughts are that a do it yourself repair would result in some part of the covering like the screen bezel or some other thing that clips covers together breaking without detailed instructions. It might not be critical what would break. There maybe some magic tool to take it apart. Do not forget that you have to keep track of all those different size screws.
Now that I think about. $225+$65 does not sound like a bad deal unless something else is broken. Think about it. You get a brand new screen. Looks like a nice resolution 13.3-inch WXGA+ (1440 x 900 resolution) TFT display. Wow.

The repairs were done this morning!! A Lenovo techie came on site and replaced the bezel and screen.
Pls don't get me wrong I love the X300. I agree with your point about the RRP.

I just got a Lenovo Think Pad Edge in Sept, The screen crack for no reason as well, I left it on the table,close the cover and two hours later when I try using it, There is a leaf shape internal crack at the lower left corner, near where the cooling fan exhaust is.
When I sent it in, the quote for repair is close to S$600/-
If I drop it or put any pressure on it, I would pay for it, not when it is Product defect.
How to have faith in Lenovo when they don't even replace for their defect?????
