  • 12" Touchscreen on clearance at walmart

    Walmart is clearance'ing a "kitchen computer" for $498, located here:
    Walmart Link

    It's a full desktop computer, but it comes with a 12" touchscreen along with everything else. True, it's not ready to be stuck into your dashboard, but lots of people on here have taken apart their screens for custom fitting into their cars, so they might be interested in a 12" TS and a little DIY work.

      The only thing which would really be a concern is the reflectivity of the screen. It probably has some of the same issues as most touchscreens in terms of glare, and since it's an online-only deal it will be difficult to judge that until you have it in hand. But still, considering that 10" screens alone go for over $700 this is a great deal just waiting to be dremel'ed.

            I use a 12" touch screen tablet in my car and have considered something like this before.

            The reason I didnt go for it was because i wanted a removable / easy to hide solution.

            And about the 10" touch screens costing north of $700 - Baloney. go to ebay, search for "touch screen", sort by highest price and take a look in between the $100-$400 range. you will find touch screens WITH remotes for mad mad mad cheap!

            boo-yacka,
            - sh00k
            Duct tape and a Bandana for the win, b!shes!!!
