ASUS K550VX Display upgrade

Lenovo Computer Forum - forum.desktopreview.com
Hi everyone!

I'm a new user on this forum so please forgive me if i'll do some errors. Also I'm from Italy so I apologize for my poor english.

Back to the thread: I own a Asus K550VX-XX107T with a i7-6700hq, gtx 950m, 4 gb of ram. I already added a 8 gb ram module and a SSD. It's really fast, but I can't stand looking at this display. I use it for university purposes, so I have to read a lot of pdf. I also spend a lot of time on youtube and watching films. I don't play a lot of games, so I thought to upgrade to a IPS panel.

Out of the box this notebook uses a 15,6" InnoLux N156BGE-EA2 1366x768 WXGA TN panel, with backlight Led illumination, and 1-Lane 30 pin eDP connector. I read that with 1-Lane eDP cable it can support resolution till 1600x900. So I searched for a IPS 1366x768 panel and I found a LG LP156WHA-SPA1 with 30 pin eDP connector and Led illumination. Can I upgrade to this LG panel?

There is also a FHD version of this notebook, Asus K550VX-DM108T and similar. Is there a possibility to change my eDP cable to 2-Lane, maybe from K550VX-DM108T laptop, and upgrade to FHD? Where I could find this cable? I live in Italy so shipments from US may cause some problems.

Thank you for your help; correct this thread please if I made some mistakes.
