    it's a great idea and I think the time for touchscreen tablets and the like is actually finally coming. The problem with the Eee PC T91 is it's lack of power and pretty bad screen - it's also expensive. With multitouch and decent price/power they'll have a winner - I'll buy one straight away.

    the +400euro / +360pounds price might have something to do with that

    We've had netbooks around for a few years now, still I cannot buy one for less than 260 Euro's, 235pounds right now.
    For me, that's just too steep for a device that's barely powerfull enough to handle couch surfing.

    For that price you can get a 901, or even something much more powerful. If you're looking for a pure netbook, those were probably the last ones.

    Is anyone else thinking that this could make the most epic game of battleships ever?

    Nice one, I haven't played that in years.

    The next step would be a version of "The HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy" as the movie uses a book stylised book which when opened is just one wide screen with no join line in the middle. Get that right and it would look f'n awesome.

    Saw this on the MyDellMini site yesterday - looks pretty awesome, IMO. Will be very interested to see what the case for this looks like.

    The best is still what's displayed on the screens : "Bombings in Iraq, Deadliest since 2007, Raises security issue" and "Awesome :)" :D

    nowdays this mod might cost even less than it originally was:
    7" touchscreen (usb/vga) = 45$
    dell mini 910 (second hand)= 60$
    hardware upgrades: (recycled/new)= +/- 50$
    (all prices are on average, by a good name seller, (no china-EBAY junk) if you buy from china do it from shops that do not sell trough ebay, [higher chance on taxes,vat,ect with those sellers])

    if you still have friends that have older netbooks from the same size as your own one, modding it is even easyer


    (i still have 1 and it runs like a charm with windows 10 on it) (might consider doing a mod for it)
