T61P 15.4” wide screen model’s motherboard INTO R61 8918-A14 15.4” wide screen model ?

Hi, there

 

I’m using R61 8918-A14 15.4” wide screen model.

I heard that both as above have the same-sized motherboards from someone.

 

Is it possible to adopt T61P 15.4” wide screen model’s motherboard

in my R61 by replacing it with T61P’s ?

 

Thank you for reading this question..

Hi and welcome to the forums, tester. It seems like its possible to put a 15.4" T61p's motherboard on an 15.4" R61. The R and T series share a lot of components, including the motherboard. However, there are modifications involved. The heatsink on the R61 may not be up to the job of handling the cooling, and the early batch of Nvidia GPUs on the T61p's motherboard do have problems so make sure to get a GPU with a late build date.
