Check this out - after the iPad wasn't what I wanted I build what I needed:

Video is 10m and it covers the installation as well as the actual equipment.

Let me know what you think - always appreciate feedback.

Very cool , love it .
Surprised that Apple had that much touch tech already built into OSX , I knew some was there but not that much .

Anyway needs ; maybe not shown .

1 - multi finger jesters
2 - iPad style keyboard , the one shown looked rather small for the screen size <- maybe that is a function of the screen ? ?

Being a constructions guy laugh
1 - I sure hope that was not a load bearing wall that you cut that stud out of ? if so I did not see a Header installed to take the place of the stud ?

2 - The finishing around the box and the drywall - better if you used paper tape and joint compound and a 5 inch broad knife , this prevents future cracking between the box and the wall .

Otherwise fantastic .

Great! It just needs one of these:

If it's brokenless, don't suffix it...

Does the VESA mount allow easy access to the DVD slot?


If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention...
