Like the idea of carrying around a tiny laptop with a 7 inch display but wish that it had a touchscreen and came in a tablet format instead of a more traditional clamshell laptop design? After many months in development, a hardware hacker has put together a kit for converting an Asus Eee PC 701 into a tablet style computer.
You’ll need to pick up an Eee PC and a touchscreen on your own, but the Aeeeris kit will let you scoop out the guts of your netbook and put them into a tablet-style frame. The kit costs $60, and if you shop wisely, you can probably find a touschreen for around $40, which means you can build your own Tablet PC for around $400 or less, which is a lot less money than you’d pay for most tablet PCs on the market.
