Swapping x230 Screen with x220 screen

 Hi everyone,


I am currently owning an x230 with TN display. I came accross an offering of a very pristine x220 with IPS screen.


I wonder if I can swap the screen between them.


Thanks in advance for your input.

Welcome to the forum!


Swapping the panel will work. I'm not sure about swapping the entire lid though...

IPS panels for both laptops are the same - LGD LP125WH2-SLB1 or -SLB3. Also, a bit newer model -SLT2 has a better quality, but has a different number of mounting brackets.

x220 • Gobi 2000 3g  |  x220 • hdd, msata ssd, 3g, wifi, gps -- unique hand-made config
x1c Gen3 (2015) • WQHD MT IPS, PCIe ssd
Miix 2 10"  |  Yoga Tablet 2-1050F (Android 5.0), BKC800 BT Keyboard, FolioCase
ThinkPad Stack • 2.4/5 wireless router, hdd 1 TB, BT speaker, power bank

Do it well, worse becomes itself
