Hello, my name is Moritz Böker and I am a German maker. I want to share my latest project with you: The maybe first self made and published convertible tablet in the internet!
A convertible tablet is a sort of notebooks, that you can turn or twist into a tablet pc.
You either can use it as an ordinary notebook or as a tablet.
There are many ways to do this mechanically. The Lenovo Thinkpad X230t, for example, allows to turn the display by 180° and shut it down to use it as a tablet.
The display of the Lenovo Ideapad “Yoga” can be turned by 360° to the other side.
And Dell uses a system, where two separate hinges inside the frame of the display can be twisted, like the former black boards in school. Another type of convertible tablets is a slider notebook, that was is build by MSI, ASUS, Toshiba and Sony.
Possible would be, to have a notebook with to LCD-screens on each side of the display.
I was interested in building a tablet out of an discarded notebook. There are some Instructables in the web, where makers build their own tablet, but the results are often poor and weak and rarely comparable to consumer tablets.
So when an acquaintance of me gave me a HP 6735s for my own purpose, I decided to turn it into a convertible tablet and publish it here on Instructables.com.
Step 1: Take apart
The first step is to dissassemly the notebook that should become a convertible tablet. You only have to divide the display from the base of the notebook and disassemble the display. Be careful with the display, it's fragile LCD-panel and sensitive LCD-cable.
