I am new to this forum and just would first like to say hello to everyone!
This may be a strange request, but I am wondering if anyone knows of the possibility of replacing the 1366x768 screen that is in the Y400 laptop with a higher resolution screen. I have done some research and it seems it might be possible to do so, I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with this or could perhaps let me know the possibility of it. The Y400 is the perfect laptop to me except for the crappy screen, but I find the Y500 a little too much (and really does not feel as solid to me).
I was thinking of using a Lenovo Thinkpad screen such as that found on the T430. They both use the same backlight, have the same dimensions, and the same pin connector. Here are the links I found to the screen specifications:
Y400 (1366x768): https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/section/search/index.php?section=products&model=IDEADPAD Y400 SERIES&brand=IBM-Lenovo
It just really looks like this might be possible...any thoughts or should I just forget it?
Otherwise, I may need to give up the Y400 and just get the Thinkpad and live with the lower graphic and gaming possibilities.
