DIY ASUS Eee PC 900HA touchscreen upgrade tutorial

Some of our most popular netbook pages here on SlashGear are those describing DIY touchscreen projects, where a touch-sensitive layer is added to the budget ultraportable's display.  There are already kits available on eBay and elsewhere offering straightforward 7- and 8.9-inch panels, but what we've lacked to date is a really simple tutorial - something that takes you from stock Eee PC to touchscreen marvel.  Happily, courtesy of argentum, such a guide is now available.

DIY ASUS Eee PC touchscreen kit under $100

DIY ASUS Eee PC touchscreen kit under $100

The news that ASUS is considering a touchscreen version of the Eee PC seemed like a pretty natural progression, but if you're unwilling to wait until the official EeeTablet then this DIY kit seems the cheapest way so far to add touch functionality to the 7-inch notebook.  Consisting of the touch panel itself, together with a controller board (that keeps your webcam working while also adding two extra USB ports) and the tools necessary to fit it, it's apparently as easy as unscrewing the bezel and plugging in a few cables.  They're also offering optional Bluetooth.

ASUS plan to unveil their touchscreen Eee PC at CES 2009 in January, with a launch early in the new year, according to Samson Hu, general manager of Eee PC business at the company.  No specific details of what format the touchscreen Eee will take have been released; ASUS could choose to add a touch-sensitive panel to the screen of an existing netbook (similar to the aftermarket mods we've seen) or it could develop a new Eee Slate PC.

DIY Acer Aspire One UMPC

DIY Acer Aspire One UMPC

ToDo forum member stretracer18 loved his Acer Aspire One netbook, but wanted a touchscreen slate version instead; Acer not being forthcoming with such a UMPC, he created his own.  Now we've seen touchscreen modifications of netbooks before, but this is a full case reworking: the top and bottom sections of the Aspire One have been screwed together minus the keyboard in-between, with the lid flipped round to give access to the display (with touchscreen panel) and webcam.
