Last weekend at foo camp, I got the opportunity to see a Pixel Qi display in person. Yesterday morning, they went up for sale on the Maker Shed. I clicked buy. I bit the bullet and paid for overnight shipping. Last night I popped over to Microcenter and picked up a Samsung N135.
This morning, FedEx delivered a box from Sebastapol.
8 screws and some fiddly plastic bits later, I have a netbook I can use outside. The display is Wow. Just Wow.
Inside, it's a normal laptop display. Outside, it's almost as bright as a Kindle (eInk) screen. Yes, it plays video just fine.
