Touchscreen on the Dell Mini 9

Decided to add a touchscreen to my Dell Mini 9 :)  This will be my first hack so fingers crossed it goes well!

There are a few touchpanels from Hong Kong on ebay that are suitable.  Most of them are resistive single touch touchscreen that look pretty easy to install through a usb connection, though there is also a capacitive touchscreen (the kind used on smart phones) that supports multitouch.  It’s about £60 so a fair bit more expensive than the resistive screen but I think it will be worth it.  Looks like some skill with a soldering iron is needed but that won’t be a problem for me.

I have it ordered, and now waiting for it to arrive.
