I really like the t500 series, and wanted to buy it for few months but the did not have LED displays. But finally lenovo released the WXGA LED , which is great except for low resolution . And for some reason t400 has the WXGA+ LED.
I talked to lenovo reps on the phone, but nobody can give a definite answer on if WXGA+ coming to T500.
So the question is:
If I buy t500 with WXGA LED LCD, and then lenovo releases WXGA+ LED LCD, Will I be able to purchase the display panel it self, and then install it into my laptop myself, or will it require changing other hardware component as well????
Or should I Just go for WSXGA+(1680×1050) TFT, w/ CCFL Backlight???

Welcome to the forum!
While I can't answer your question on if and when WXGA+ LCDs are coming to T500 series, there are a couple of other things that I can tell you:
a) By replacing the LCD by yourself you will void the warranty.
b) The cost of WXGA+ LCD in addition to T500 without one is likely to cost you a lotmore than a factory-configured T500 with the LCD that you want.
From my (not so modest) experience, most T models are always offered with more than one resolution, so I believe that you'll get to see WXGA+ on a T500...
Hope this helps.
