Diy Tablet Pc
hi everyone, finally signed up to the site
ive been thinking of trying to make my own tablet pc just for fun
but theres a few thing im not sure about such as cooling,and touchscreen
havnt decided on any hardware yet but would love to hear anyones thoughts on the subject
Unfortunately, you are extremely unlikely to be able to accomplish anything that resembles a tablet... The components tend to be application specific, so you will actually need to buy a tablet and take it apart in order to get the pieces to put together into a tablet.
Thermo-pad or heat-pipe attached to outer, rear aluminum panel of the tablet.

extras like 3G and accelerometer can be added on through usb.
if i was to ever do it my goal would be to have android running on it
Just buy a chinese one that comes with android for 100$.
i had a look at thoses chinese they arnt that powerful and theres no good reviews about them.
i just think it would be fun to give it a try
