Thinkpad X201: Matte glass cracked but LCD/digitizer perfectly fine, easy to replace?

2011-10-22, 21:40 PM

The screen on my Thinkpad X201 mysteriously cracked one day, but the multi-touch, pen digitizer and LCD all still function perfectly. The only problem is the glass on top. Is there a part # for this or is it easy to replace without having to replace the entire LCD/digitizer part?

The digitizer is glued to the LCD making replacement of just one of the two parts nearly impossible.

I see. So that cracked outer layer of glass is the digitizer then?

I guess I was confused because I can still draw on it perfectly despite being cracked.

The glass on the front is the writing surface. (just a piece of glass or plastic). The digitizer is a flat panel mounted on the rear of the panel with a matrix of contacts. (rows and columns)
