Powerbook 17'' LCD/IPS replacement?

I had a search on the internet but can't seem to find any topics on this. Although the panel in the 17'' powerbook is ok, I think it is only TN and the contrast ratio isn't too great. I'm wondering if the part is replaceable with a more modern IPS display, does anyone know? Thanks

HI stormy,

Laptop LCDs typically aren't interchangable with other models owing to non-standard signals; there is no drop in replacement for a 17" PowerBook.

There are certain panel models that are interchangable with some portables but the majority are not "drop in" replacements.
