10.1″ netbooks are pretty well dirt cheap right now – there were loads available this Thanksgiving weekend for less than $200, and that looks like a trend that’s going to continue. But what if you want a multi-touch capable device? Those are a bit more pricey.
However, if you’re willing to crack open the plastic housing on your netbook and do a quick solder job you can give you current netbook multitouch super powers for about $120.
eBay seller innotech global has posted a kit which fits “most 10.1″ netbooks.” Specifically, they’ve tested the kit on Acer’s D150 and D250, Sony’s W series, and the BenQ U101. The key here is that innotech’s kits are multitouch – whereas previous kits we’ve seen are just plain-old touch screens.
We’ve embedded a video clip after the break so you can see the screen in action. One caveat: the seller currently has 0 feedback on eBay, so make sure you’re comfortable before pulling the trigger on a purchase – email and ask questions, and use Paypal to make sure you’re protected.
