    Hi

    Planning my casebuild, and is looking at mounting a 7" screen (Touch would be lovely - 4,3" could maybe work ) ...

    Is going to be a secodary screen, showing a moving when playing, or something like that.

    Is the most easy to buy a cheap Tablet, and take apart ? - Going to use a Asus Z77 motherboard.

    Hope you see where im going - What to search on ebay for ? :D

    Regards Henrik

    You might as well forget about this option as there are not VGA/DVI/HDMI pin outs inside such devices that could be used to connect to.

    You need the matching controller chip for the screen to make it work, and you don't know if that chip could be hacked until you take the device apart. Then if it's not got a usable controller you've got an expensive paperweight.

    I'm not quite sure what you were looking to spend, but I used a SoundGraph FingerUI 700M in my Music Box build. Quite happy with the screen

    7" Touchscreen, and 25mm thick. Powered by an adapter from the 24-pin motherboard connector, and has internal USB header for video connection. It also came with a few other things to plug in such as IR receiver, the button board, and button/wheel combo thing:

    That almost the same size as the Lilliput

    http://www.lilliputweb.net/index.php?Controller=User_Product&action=ShowProduct&product_id=88#Key

    Dimension(LWH):188×123×23.5mm/25.8mm(with touch panel)

    In my build that just pretty big :-( ....

    Just hate that you can get at much thinner tablet for the same price, with hardware ...
