Inexpensive Touchscreen "Life Command Center" Using Pine64
Motion Activated Digital Calendar
Portable Arcade and Media Player
He used a 20 inch touch screen monitor which cost him $90 bucks which is cheap and a pine64.
How much would it cost you to buy a 20" tablet? Also, you have the fun of building it yourself.
The dell specs say that monitor is 1600x900 max resolution. Is the desktop size correct on this monitor, or do you have areas that you can't see? My Pine64 is only sized properly on a 1080 screen.
So, do you suppose any Touchscreen with USB input will be supported by Android in this kind of configuration?
Great project Frank and affordable, congrats!One question though, what made you go through basically building a big tablet instead of going just for buying an Android tablet with a big screen?Do you see any advantages in terms of functionality compared to a tablet?

Thanks, it came out better than expected.
