Play and Stream HD Content

One of the main reasons for building this tablet was that I wanted a touchscreen that could play and stream HD content in an HD resolution.  The 13.4" screen has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and is able to playback 720p content and stream most 720p Flash content.  Almost all netbooks and the iPad have screen resolutions less than 720p (1280 x 720) so they cannot truly playback HD video in an HD resolution.

I chose the Atom Z530 with the GMA 500 because of its very low power usage and ability to play HD content if tuned properly.  With the correct drivers and applications this chipset can handle HD and Flash.  You do not need a power hungry Nvidia Ion to be able to enjoy video on a tablet or netbook.


  1. Do you have a more specific parts list?

  2. WOW that is amazing for a home built piece of kit - i built a laser based touch screen - a bit like Microsoft's surface system about a year ago - and I am fully aware of just how painstaking it can be to get these types of things running just right. Well Done -
