Default Anyone else want a tablet version of the Mini? - 02-23-2009, 08:09 PM

I love my Mini 9, but I would really like a touch-screen tablet version, something like this:

but better!

Assuming that Dell Product Managers read these forums ( :lol: ) does anyone else want to lobby Dell to make something like this?

If Dell was reading these forums I hope they would see how terribly unhappy people have been w/ the wait times on new machines.

That said, I think a tablet netbook is over the top. It adds another layer of complexity to a device that should be a simple portable solution.

I'd love to do the mod that's floating around youtube- with the 60$ touch screen etc... but I'm sure I'll never get around to it.

If the screen was pressure sensitive, I would be all for it. It would be great solution for airbrushing in Photoshop for people who do not have a Wacom tablet.

I hope Dell's reading these forums- they're probably not, but just in case: I'm not happy with your shipping department, Dell. Not. happy. at. all.

Oh, and if I had a touch screen on the Mini I could really have fun with Crayon Physics :mrgreen: That would rock.

I found this video on youtube about using a Wii remote and a little LED in a pen to turn your LCD display into a touchscreen monitor. (The screen part is at about 3 minutes in) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5s5Ev...eature=related Sounds like an awesome idea for a weekend project!
