Would it be possible to do this, as long as the panels are of the same physical dimensions? Do the new panels use non-LVDS, or have an incompatible physical connector, making this not worth pursuing? Thanks.

I haven't checked, but I would think that the power delivery (cable, pinout, etc.) between a CCFL lit LCD vs. an LED lit LCD would make such a swap incompatible. If you find anything different please let us know. Scott.

I think the cables are compatible, but it needs an LED control card, which are only available for models that shipped with LED displays as an option. http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/T500-How-to-upgrade-CCFL-LCD-to-LED-backlight-display/ta-p/312104 Because my T61 was sold prior to LED displays, and no LED control card is listed in its Hardware Maintenance Manual, I think it cannot be retrofitted with an LED display.
