Thinkpad T450 IPS panel upgrade

Is it possible to buy a part on the lenovo website and change my panel to an IPS one? I see there are many panels available for my variation of the T450. My variant is the PC-049SNG. I am unsure which use IPS technology.


It is under warranty until the summer of 2018, though a panel swap should be easy?


kind regards

Re: Thinkpad T450 IPS panel upgrade

Hi William


Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.


As I understand that you have query regarding upgrading your T450 LCD panel to IPS 

Yes it is possible according to Lenovo parts list. And here is one thread which suggests IPS panel upgrade

And here's the part number for IPS panel 04X5916, also you can order the parts on this website.

It will be better to contact Lenovo Support once for LCD panel replacement as system is under warranty.


I hope the above information helped you.
