x60s possible to upgrade the screen to XSGA?

2008-06-30, 16:52 PM

Hi there,

 

I am really looking to upgrade my screen as I am fed up of 1024 - anyone know anything about this?

 

i have searched around and i saw one persons abortive attempt, and thats about it. i asked over at screentek about this http://www.screentekinc.com/Lenovo_ThinkPad_X60_Tablet--12.1-inch--1400x1050-sxgaplus-laptop-lcd-screen.shtml but they said it wouldnt fit.

 

Obviously as a last hope I will fork out for an x61 xsga but that is my last resort.

 

Many thanks,

 

Caroline

Welcome to the forum!

 

Unfortunately, you can't install LCD from X6xT in your X60s, for a variety of reasons, including the thickness of the screen itself.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

George

Thanks very much for the quick response.

 

Do you know if it'd ever be possible in any other way to boost my screen resolution? 1024 is so 90s.

unfortunately there aren't any options in replacing a 12.1" display as george said.

 

given the cost of a new display, you could consider buying a 12.1" SXGA+ X61 tablet instead.   they're on sale right now and there are even a few available through the lenovo outlet.
