Can I upgrade my T480 20L5 Laptop Screen from TN 1366 x 768 to IPS 1920 x 1080?

2020-11-20, 23:29 PM


             I cant find an answer to this anywhere and Lenovo support keeps referring me to  other departments so I thought I would try here. Title says the most of it, I'm sick of my TN screen and would love to upgrade to an IPS. Was wondering if 


             1) A replacement IPS screen would fit in my computer and if that's even possible, from TN to IPS


              2) If I can replace my screen with a higher resolution one, say 1080p


   Ideally I would like to do both, install a IPS screen with a higher resolution, but I don't know if that is physically possible or if my computer could support more pixels. Thank you in advance!

yes.  It looks to me like for an HD ->FHD change, only the panel needs to be replaced
