Thank you for the great forum and all the community helping in solving our issues!
As mentioned in the subject I have some concerns about a display upgrade.
Recently I bought absolutely fantastic small notebook - Thinkpad X260.
Unfortunatelly I was not able to choose the proper configuration and it appeared to be with the 1366x768 TN display, which grinds my gears.
I already read the following article:
There are few concerns:
Per: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/x260_frubom_20160127.pdf I'm about to buy - Original Lenovo LCD LED 12,5" Display FHD IPS 1920*1080 - X260 00HN883.
In the article appeared that @kocism used to have some troubles to fit the FHD display somehow.
Is the FHD front display cover as same as the one used with the TN panel?
What about the frame around the display?
In general should I buy something else to have this upgrade done in the smoothest way or what I have is enough?
Thank you very much in advance.

The parts list provides no clue. It talks about a "small" panel, which takes a different bezel and cable and provides no insight into what they are talking about. You are going to have a hard time finding someone to provide a definitive answer.

@richk thank you for the fast reply.
However, I think in the part list there is enough information to support me in buying all needed.
Almost everything is available in ebay while I was searching by the part numbers.
The question is what exactly I need to buy.
The closed topic doesn't put much light on that, that's why I opened this new one in order to gather all that information.
Hopefully somebody already did this conversion from TN to IPS FHD and could help.

It should be the same as it was on my X240. Once you have the right panel (I used this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MG23347/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).
This is the procedure I followed, after some careful reading. The job took me no more than 5 minutes.

Hi, I now have exactly the same problem. I have ordered 3 screen, which are in a supported list, they all do work just fine, BUT physical size is smaller then the old TN panel. Old TN panel ix (290 x 179) with the frame and all FHD panels I tried are (282 x 177) with the frame, which makes FHD screen not stay in place.
PLEASE, did you solve this porblem? I hope you still read this formu. I have no idea what to do.
Image 1 - Size difference problem.
Image 2 - Red frame shows gaps places where screen frame is small
Image 3 - Original TN Panel size.
I really hope Lenovo or You have a solution.
This issue is also mentioned here but never resolved, even though it is marked as Solved.
