Taiwanese web store Mobile01 is selling a touchscreen kit for the Eee PC 701. If I’m translating the page correctly (and I’m not at all certain that I am), you can pick up the kit for 2,350 Taiwanese dollars, which is about the equivalent of $77 US.

The kit is somewhat cleverly called “Easy to Touch,” which is obviously a play on the whole Eee = “Easy to learn, easy to work, easy to play” thing. So I suppose once you install the touchscreen you can say you have an Eeee PC. But then people are just going to look at you funny.

As you can see from the photos, it looks like installation is pretty straightforward. And the screen is designed to snap into place, so you don’t need a soldering iron.

  1. Hi,
    When I read the article, it seeems they are speaking about the eeePC 900. Which is the right one ?

    1. When you read which article? The Taiwanese web site lists this as a kit for
      the Eee PC 701. Jkkmobile says he *also* managed to put a touchscreen in his
      Eee PC 900. Earlier he did the same thing with an Eee PC 701, but without
      the help of this kit.
