Asus Eee PC modded with touchscreen, mounted under cabinet – Video

cabinet pc

Sure, part of the appeal of netbooks is that they’re super light and ultraportable laptops that you can take with you anywhere. But they’re also cheap, which makes them excellent options for anyone looking to hack together a robot, carputer, or under-the-cabinet PC.

EeeUser Forums member mburris has been working on converting his Asus Eee PC 901 into a cabinet-mounted touchscreen PC for the past few weeks. He basically replaced the display with a touchscreen and flipped the screen around to make it easier to pull down from the cabinet. He also loaded it with Windows 7, which is more touch-friendly than Windows XP.

You can find more photos at his Picasa web album, or check out a video of the computer in action after the break.

    Now there is an unexplored area (pun intended) – – -
    We all struggle with getting good use out of our desktop
    area. Now we can start stressing out over how effectively
    we are using the **underside** of the desktop.

    No more simply sticking the racing form in the top desk
    drawer for a quick glance when the boss isn't around.

    That's not an Eee PC 901… Look at the hinge (the 901 has a bigger silver circle), it's either a 900 or a 900A.

    I bet it's hard to type and not push the screen backwards. Can get annoying after a while
