Hello all! I am looking for a 4k60/4k120 15 inch panel for a custom framework laptop i’m building and i’m just wondering if any of you have recommendations? Any help greatly appreciated!
Like these? Or do you have something more specific in mind?
Out of curiosity, how are you building the 15" chassis? A lot of people want 15-ich Frameworks and would be pretty supportive if you can make it work.
It would be something similar to a cyberdeck. In theory I could get a buddy of mine to 3d print a plastic chassis or go for a metal print from a company, all of this is theoretical currently but if I can, I’ll update this thread.
I’ve been thinking about building my own 15" laptop based on a framework laptop, tracking down a screen with a compatible connector, maybe 3d printing a hinge. I’m not sure how viable that would end up being as a laptop though.
I don’t see much other activity around this on the forum, though I suppose someone has to be first.
Based on the little I know about laptop displays, finding a 4K display with a compatible connector will be virtually impossible until framework makes a computer with a 4K display and capable, compatible connector. Your best bet might be to repurpose one of the type C ports on the laptop, separate the output into HDMI and power, and send that into a display and driver board matching the specifications you desire. The display for the dell 9560 XPS is rather old but is a great low profile 15 inch display that may suit your needs, but I am not sure of the availability of compatible breakout driver boards.
