    That's pretty quick! What board/CPU are you running?

    Very fast build and install too! Do you have pictures of what all you were able to pack in the case?

    Yep received mine pretty fast too. I had some initial problems with the screen not lighting up (loose cable) and trying to obtain 800*480 resolution. Derrick was great in providing support to resolve these issues.

    I have a question on the left button board. I understand the top button is non programmable and serves as a on/off button. With just a USB connection, I don't quite understand how to power on the pc. I am also not able to power off. Am I missing something here?

    Does windows 8 recognize the screen as a touchscreen or just a "touchscreen mouse"?

    Just as a mouse. I tried to install some windows 7 drivers from eGalax Touch , and some experimental windows 8 drivers, but did not get multi point touchscreen to work.

    The Touch.rar drivers linked in this thread work with windows 8, but I could only get mouse mode out of them.

    It's a momentary contact switch that you connect to the power button header on the motherboard. You could also use it for reset if you prefer.

    What you do is have 12v battery to the yellow wire input to power supply, red or white power supply goes to the car's blue acc switched when car starts, and blk to gnd. Then you find the computer power button 2 pin out from your power supply to send the momentary pulse that boots your motherboard.

    I hate to sound like a broken record, but now that the current product line is complete, any chance you'd wanna give a capacitive version a crack? Alternatively, is tft_lcd_org still retrofitting these monitors with capacitive multitouch overlay?
