Hello, I recently got an x280 type 20KE, and found out it was a 1366x768p screen. I was wondering if I could replace it with a 1920x1080p screen simply by: popping off the front that cover that surrounds the screen, which I am assuming is held in place with some plastic clips, unscrew some screws, pull off the display panel, disconnect the connector, then do everything in reverse with a 1920x1080p display to replace it.
I looked up the compatible parts lists for the laptop and found a 1080p screen with the parts number 00NY682 on the list, so I would think it is just that easy, but I also saw some people on other websites saying you can't upgrade the screen because of the number of pins in the connectors or that it's not that easy.
And if it can be done, I plan on doing it while replacing the m.2 SSD, so I'll be disconnecting the laptop's battery before doing any of it.
So my question basically is: Can the 768p screen be replaced by the 1080p screen easily?

Hi there, KAVB!
Welcome to the Lenovo forum discussion!
As we were checking here, yes, you can change the current LCD display of the ThinkPad X280 from 1366x768p to 1920x1080p. This is the correct part number 00NY682 for the LCD Panel (FHD) and you need to change the LCD cable as well (LCD cable for FHD#: 01YN072). You can simply order the LCD (FHD) display panel and LCD cable (FHD) here https://lenovo.encompass.com?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6.
