I have heard that the 1080 asus displays are much much better than the 1600x900 screens. Has anyone considered switching them out? I don't think it would be too difficult but I could be very wrong. I think the 3d models have a different 50 pin connector so thats not an option, but having true 1080 might be nice. there are some screens on ebay for less than $100.

Be carefull most of the stuff they sell online is garbage. Make sure You find a pannel You are looking for and not just a replacement. I'm looking at two displays myself Chi Mei N173HHF-E21 & AU Optronics B173HW01 V.4 hopefully I can find one myself.

I think you've got it right in the latter part of your last sentence, @backyardpro. Replacing a laptop display is an Advanced DIY procedure. It's not something you want to attempt as a first experience.

Haha, thanks for the input everyone. I know its not as easy as a hardrive swap, but i would rather replace a screen than try and fix code or something. nuts and bolts are easy.

Which notebook are you attending to change the display on ?

EDIT: So I did find this site (http://screensurgeons.mybigcommerce.com/17-3-1080p-full-hd-laptop-screen-with-led-backlight/) (screensurgeons.mybigcommerce.com)

17.3" Screen with glossy 1080p.
Price 145$ with 2 years warranty

And here is a youtube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JajGQE5OtsI&feature=player_embedded) about how to disassemble the screen on a G73JH :)

I hope this helps :)
