    hello everyone,
    my screen on y ibm thinkpad t60p has cracked, and I am looking for a replacement. The screen is a 15.4 inch SXGA+, and I am thinking about getting this one:

    I just wanted to know what the difference between SXGA+ screens and WSXGA screens are. Also, do you think the one I listed will work with my setup, and is it hard to install? I know you have to take the actual screen out of the casing, but is it really hard. (I think I could do t, although I'm more of a desktop than than laptop.)

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Btw, the default resolution for my current (cracked) screen is 1680x1050.

    All that SXGA+ and WSXGA mean are the resolution. SXGA+ I believe is 1400x1050, whereas WSXGA I think is 1680x1050, and is of course widescreen. The resolution may be stated wrongly for one of the items, sxga+ isn't a widescreen resolution to my knowledge.
