If the standard trackpad just isn’t doing it for you on your laptop or netbook, and you’ve got the itch to do a little modding, blogger Pierre Vernaeckt shows us how to replace its display with a touch screen.
This mod seems especially cool for netbooks, which are small, portable, and have a lot of custom optimised operating systems that are very touch-friendly. You don’t need any soldering skills or anything like that for this mod, but it still requires a steady hand and guts of steel.
You’ll basically be taking the entire computer apart and adding a touch screen from one of these kits. It’s a pretty cool upgrade, though, and with the state of some netbook touchpads being so crappy, it could actually make your netbook easier to use. Hit the link for the full how-to, and check out the video above to see it in action.
