Replacing whole lid/screen assembly for my Thinkpad R61. Any compatability issues?

My screen has a big black mark in it, and black is showing up in spots along the edge now as well, which I guess means it is peeling apart. The easiest installation solution seems to be to replace the entire lid/screen assembly.

I have found one here. There's no part number, probably because it's a whole assembly of parts. Is there any possibility of incompatability, including everything fitting together good and locking closed?  (I don't know what the *7 is after the title, I think it's just the seller's own classification.)

Also, 14.1" is the screen diag. size, not the lid size, right? :-)

Looks like it'd be the one for you. I'd suggest you contact the seller to see what that *7 is for.
