I have a W500 TYPE 4061 - I bought it used but it is functioning well 
with an SSD and Peppermint5. My only problem is that its display is aging 
- I think - and it is so dim that I can hardly use the laptop in open air.
At least, I hope that the reason of this dimness is in fact the age of 
the screen panel, but I do not know. Do you think that replacing display 
panel to a new one would reasonably improve brightness of the screen? Did 
anybody of you have experience with a new W500 on a sunny day in the 
garden? Does it worth replacing display panel on such an old (but still 
for my expectations extremely good performing) piece of hardware? I 
appreciate any experienced opinion on that.
