I'd check eBay.  I recently picked up a nice screen there for under 100
USD including shipping.

As far as buying "compatible" third party screens goes, I'd be careful.
IIRC, the T60s are picky about what panels they'll accept, and they'll
reject panels that don't have an EDID that they recognize.  There are a
couple threads on the forums at ThinkPads.com about this -- you might
want to ask there for suggestions on good sources for panels.
