    Hello Gabriele,

    That list looks good. The only thing that concerns me is the 70 Watt power supply. It should be OK for everything, but you're cutting it close with the 3.5" hard drive. Is it 5400rpm or 7200rpm? 5400 would be better as far as power goes.

    I don't see any DVD drive in your list, but adding one would probably put you over the recommended limit of that power supply. Also, you'll have to be carefull how many USB devices that you hook up. Some can be power hungry too.

    I would get a bigger power supply to give yourself some room to grow later. That's just my opinion. Sorry, I can't tell you anything about the Liliput screens. I don't have one.

    Later,
    Tom

    The PW70A should be fine. It is a 100 Watt power supply.
