Available eDP display replacement!

So, it seems that the eDP era just began for laptops, meaning that in most cases the lousy or not so lousy panel to a good one. For example, you want to get good laptop that you saw for a very low price for your Photoshop / Gimp work, but the screen quality is not satisfactory. What do you do? Before, you had to invest a lot of money just in order to get a laptop with a better-than-crap display with no other choice and these were usually not cost effective machines, to say the least.

It’s not the case no more. With laptops that use the standard eDP interface for the panel, the replacement is possible and in many case easy without the need to take the laptop apart, like in the Lenovo Y50 case.

So, I think a small list of available panels will be beneficial for those who want to replace the screen and some cheap laptops for example. You can also use this list.

It’s ofcourse only partial list and if you see something else, say so! Also, there are more stores to buy from – search the web!
