Just saw these on the fleabay for $100. from the far east.
I did not buy one, but for the price the look interesting...........
Ohhh I just had a thought...With a little creativity, one could put this INSIDE a aging Toughbook, Adapt the lcd and keyboard.....Hmm..
Anyway they look like interesting, I'm not spending $100 on one just yet, But I will save the bookmark for later projects.

Thanks guys...

I did find a HDMI to 13.3" 30 pin LVDS converter...That means I could plug the LCD panel into the micro computer.
Then plug the touchscreen into a usb...Use onscreen keyboard.....
USB hub with a flash drive....
Stuff it all in a CF29 case...
Bob's ur Uncle....

Well then....I guess you don't like it Jeff?
EDIT.. OK,OK I am guilty of improperly translating Jeff's post..Usually I am good at translating Jeffspeak.....So the micro PC is cool enough for you to consider putting off the BRANDING to investigate..
If you have a monitor..ANY size with a HDMI port...plug this in grab a bluetooth keyboard and mouse..and you have a PC...You can even redo it with linux.....
