One of the things I love about netbooks is the nearly-full sized keyboards. Try as I might, I just can’t be as productive on a touchscreen-only device. I do too much typing during the day, and rely on keyboard shortcuts to get much of my work done (although the gesture support on tablets like the Gigabyte TouchNote T1028X could certainly help you emulate keyboard shortcuts). But not everyone feels the way I do about keyboards, and so every now and again someone decides to gut a netbook, remove the keyboard, and throw in a touchscreen to create a dirt cheap tablet-style UMPC.
The latest project making the rounds comes from a member of the EeeUser Forums who turned his Asus Eee PC 900HA into a tablet. The Eee PC 900HA has an 8.9 inch screen, which in this case has been modified with a touchscreen.
If you’re wondering why this particular tablet has two colors, it’s because it combines parts from an Asus Eee PC 900HA and a 900A. The guts of the machine are from the 900HA, which has a hard drive instead of a small solid state disk, while the screen area comes from a 900A.
