I bought a used T61, model # 8895-CTO (middle eastern), prod.id 8895WD2
It currently has an XGA screen, 1024x768 resolution, and I'm pondering exchanging it for a SXGA+ screen to get a bit more screen real-estate.
What I'm wondering is whether the connectors line up, etc.
And also if anyone with experience with these SXGA+ panels have anything to contribute - I've seen two different model numbers (Samsung and TMD).
Is it possible to exchange these?

Welcome to the forum!
Yes, the swap is doable and many users have performed it with no issues.
All you need is a new screen. Make sure to get the genuine Lenovo panel with a FRU number on it, not a "compatible" one.
Given a choice, TMD is preferred to Samsung by most people I've known.
