Possibly to replace Macbook air 13 mid 2011 display?

So, I have a mid 2011 Macbook air 13 with broken display. I'm looking for a way to fix this myself as I have prior experience with replacing laptop displays.

My question is that is it even possible to replace the display of the Macbook air's with 1440x900 displays? I'm talking about only replacing the display panel not the whole display assembly.

I found this video from youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHlQ904ft6k I think it's not the mid 2011 model but do you guys think that the prosedure would be the same?

My second question is that can I replace the mid 2011 macbook air's 1440x900 display with 1280x800 display or do I have to look for 1440x900 displays? Would this one work http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-13-3-Mac...#ht_4033wt_986? Or do it have to be something like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LG-PHILIPS...item19d4d53f6e?

All help is appreciated
