I have a lenovo thinkpad t440s with touch screen,MTM: 20AR-S1M901 S/N PF-******** and I have the case where is the screen with a break where one of the hinges very close to said hinge
As seen in the photo
I want to change the housing and I've been looking
Would this be worth it?
because the casing is about to break
I would just change the case, would not I have to change the screen that is tactile or nothing true?
I hope your help please thank you very much
Thank you very much for your help
I found a housing for my laptop T440S with cheaper touch screen money
would it be for my laptop the correct one? yes or no?
Do you recommend it to me?
I leave the link

I've got a T420s and am in the process of ording a new case and hinges. EBAY looks to have the largest sellers of this stuff and others have said they have ordered from Chinesse vendors without any problems. If you go that route, a suggestion is to use Paypal and from what I've seen, make sure you have the correct part number when you order. (There is a difference between the T420 and the T420s and are not interchangeable.) You can search through Lenovo using your serial number to look up parts so you know what to order. Also, it looks like it could take several weeks to receive an order from anything shipped from China.

but this case would be mine for my laptop
the seller asked me my MPM and S / N I checked it and I answered that it was the right one for my laptop
you agree? is it to buy it or not? because I need it, you can see that the break is strong

Welcome to the forum!
The part # looks right. To change the cover make sure you follow the procedures explained in the hardware maintenance manual: click me! (check chapter 9)
Good luck with the purchase and the cover swap!

Look in machine videos here for your T440s.

thank you very much for the answers
but I still hesitate to be a novice in this and I'm still worried
the lid is the one that closes the laptop where the screen is not the base that I have to buy could you confirm that you know more than me then would this be indicated in the link?

Looks fine to me. The seller also accepts PayPal, which is easy to get your money back in case the product has a defect or is not the correct one.
The seller mentions FRU#04X3872, which is the one listed in the official Lenovo FRU List: Link
You also see the ThinkPad logo on the top, so is definitely not the base cover ;-)
