I am thinking of upgrading my laptop display. I have an Acer Aspire s3-951-6646. This is what I know about it:




13.3-inch WideScreen (11.3"x7.1")


WXGA (1366x768) HD



Backlight type:


So I have never upgrading a laptop display before. I was wondering if someone can direct me on what kinds of things I need to look out for. I was thinking this might be compatible Condition:BRAND NEWBrand:AcerScreen:Acer Aspire S7 Series S7-391-F74Q Laptop ScreenSize:13.3"Resolution:(1920 x 1080) Full-HDBacklight:LEDAspect Ratio:Wide (16:9)Screen Type:Thin-film transistor (TFT) Active-matrix Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) for touch-screen laptop (digitizer not included)
from http://www.lcds4less.com/AcerLaptop__Acer_Aspire_S7_Series_S7-391-F74Q__laptop-screens.html

It is the same size, it is LED and it is 1080p (what I am looking for)

Replacing a broken panel is fairly easy as it has the exact same dimensions and connections, but an upgrade might not be possible. This is especially true if the dimensions are not exact as the "lid" to the laptop has to close. Aside from the drives and the RAM, upgrading a laptop is extremely difficult to do. According to the Acer website, the S3-951-6646 has an HDMI port, you can buy a standalone monitor and use that.

1366x768 resolution for a 13" is not that bad at all... I dont think its possible to get something higher anyways

I have a 14" and 1440x768
