Swap LCD assembly between two T530?

I have T530 (i7 with nVidia 5400M) with FHD screen. The mother board dead... friend has a T530 (also i7, CPU is slightly faster then mine, also has nVidia 5400m), but his screen is 1366x768. He is willing to sell to me for a dirty cheap price.


I am wondering if i can just swap the lcd lid assembly so that my FHD screen works on his T530, and his 1366x768 panel works on my T530? 


If it works, I plan to replace the motherboard of my T530 so I can use it for some automated testing.

Thanks

No problem.  Just swap the screens and plug it in.

Sorry one more question, do they use the same LCD cable?  I am thinking to swap the panel probably is easier then the complete lcd asemmbly.  If they use the same 40 pin cables, then I probably will just swap the panel.  So would that work?
