[Rob928] has done a fantastic job converting his Dell mini9 into a tablet. He has done several updates, such as an SSD hard drive and touchscreen. The final product looks quite nice. From a few feet away, we wouldn’t have noticed that it was a home made one. We’ve seen several tablet conversions before from macbooks to EeePCs.

A real hack!
I thought about converting my 12″ laptop into a tablet, but besides having no experience I don’t want to ruin the warranty :|
Maybe I should pick some cheap old lappy to play with.
@IceBrain: Same here. I’m not that skilled with hardware hacks, so I’d probably just go for a touchbook if I wanted a tablet. :P
How did he turn his thinkpad into a keyboard?
@ashton30: That’s an IBM Ultranav keyboard for desktop/server use, not a hacked Thinkpad. It comes in USB and PS/2 versions.
Nice hack. I have a 12″ Notebook/Tablet convertible rig that I love. This is a sweet conversion but I’m not sure I dig the no-kb thing, I like being able to rotate my LCD and snap it down when I want to use tablet mode, and put it back again when I need a KB.
Other than that this is awesome. Nice job.
