  5. Do you have a site or video on how you made this step by step? I would love to make one myself.

  6. Along with a how to guide, where the parts were obtained from. It would also be interesting to see if this would run the Meego OS or the Ubuntu netbook edition Remix.

  7. This is awesome. How did you manage to create the case? I've been wanting to do something like this with my aspire one, but I don't know to build a solid casing. Arexxk@gmail.com

  10. There is nowhere to purchase a case like that so I made it from scratch out of carbon fiber. It wasn't easy and it took quite a lot of time, but it is definitely doable.

  11. It would be great if you could post intructions on how you created the tablet. Also have you tested heating issues with the processor. This is a concern with tablets now and IPAD is the only tablet out there that has resolved this issue. Have you ran your tablet for longer than 4 hours to see if its getting hot.

  12. This won't be able to run Meego since they are not supporting GMA500. Where did you buy carbon fiber? How did you make the case? I am very interested in doing such a great project like yours.

  13. There are many retailers online selling carbon fiber fabric; he probably bought that and laminated it with epoxy around some kind of form.

    I wish you'd have taken photos of the construction! :-D

  14. Where did you get the resistive touchscreen overlay, and is it multitouch?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Very cool!

    Any chance you'll do a writeup of parts/prices/providers when you're finished?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Where could I buy the touchscreen. I am very interested in this screen.

  17. ohh, sorry, but isn´t full-HD 1920x1080?
    plus the ipad´s resolution is only 1024x768:D
    But still, a very nice "tablet":D

  18. Where did you buy the motherboard from? Did you buy the MSI Slim X320 and disassembled it, to get the motherboard?

    Best regards

  19. What did you use for a template or mold to make the case? If you still have it around can you take a couple of snapshots of it?
    Thanks.

  21. What did you do for the battery? Did you mount the stock MSI battery inside the carbon fiber?

    ReplyDelete
  22. How is the power?

  24. HI, I think your project is very professional and I like what you've done for the tablet Pc. It's really innovative. I've always wanted to build electronics and disassemble gadgets. I would like to know if you can send a few instructions on the case and molding. I would love to learn how to do this and also if you can give more info about how you mounted the battery would be well appreciated. I will even pay you for the instructions on how to just make the case i'm so interested. Please respond back..My email address is rabenzie1@gmail.com
    Thanks
