Lenovo thinkpad / T420

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, IIntel quad core 2.8 GH, 8 GH RAM
My question is: Can the fingerprint reader from a Lenovo T420 laptop be transplanted to an E420?

(The software here is telling me that I need a "more descriptive message body, at least 100 characters", so I'll go ahead and clutter my simple question with this useless note).

✔ Best Answer
Do you mean replace the one on the E420 with the one from the T420? They are located in different places, and the keyboard and palm rest specs are different. So, the connectors on the MOBO would be different.

So, probably not.

Actually, I wanted to move the reader from a T420, where I didn't need it, to an E420 that didn't ship with one. The only remotely relevant references I could find online were photos from Amazon and eBay, where they look quite different. If the specs and connectors are different, as you say, I guess it can't work. Too bad. Thanks.
