X201s webcam install?

2014-11-27, 16:32 PM

I found a great on this site for installing a webcam on Thinkpad models, and eBay offers webcams they claim will work with my X201s.

 

I have a practical concern, however - where exactly would the lens go? Looking at the bezel of my LCD, there is no obvious place for a webcam. There are what look like two rectangular screw caps either side of the ThinkLight. Looking at pictures of other Thinkpads, they seem to have a trapezoidal section in the center top of the bezel that would fit a webcam assembly. Mine doesn't have that. Is one of those 'screw caps' really an opening for a webcam?

The reason is that your X201s most probably has a screen resolution of 1440x900. For this model there's no place for a webcam.

 

Could you please confirm your screen resolution? If it's not the one mentioned above then you should see the trapezoidal cap mentioned in your post
