Hi guys, I have a Lenovo W541 and I currently have the standard 1080p screen. I was wondering if I could upgrade it later to the 3k display.

I want to know if I have to change the bezel or any other part in order to install this display.

Full Specs:
CPU- i7-4810mq
GPU- k2100m
Ram- 16gb @ 1600mhz
Storage- 840 EVO 250gb SSD

Thanks!
 

Normally that'd be the case. But this particular model is available with a 3k display. If you can find the exact display and purchase it, an upgrade should be possible. Depending on the laptops design though, this can range from easy to next to impossible. I would try asking in the Lenovo and Notebook Review forums if any owners have swapped the screen, and how difficult it was and what model screen.

Typically, the answer would be, "no". The power draw would exceed the laptop's specifications. This is why they have external display options. You could probably use a higher resolution display using the external display ports.
