Just a quick note to say the DIY kits from our distributor will be available towards the end of Q2. We will be announcing with them prior to distrbution. Thanks for your patience.
So if you have a 10 " netbook laying about and a diy spirit you may just have a Pixel Qi display in your near future

I didn't see anything about sizes offered. So you have more information? I have a 14 inch notebook, I would love to swap out.

they have pretty well publicized in the past that the first size produced would be the 10". I haven't read any thing recently about other sizes.

Yeah most likely it'll just be their one size offering, which is 10".

I might well pick up a cheap 10" netbook for this. I wonder if any actual PC manufacturers will be announcing products with the displays, or if the DIY stuff will show up before then.

I'd wait until the exact dimensions are known and you can check it'll be an easy fit into the netbook, tbh. Also you'll need space in the case for the display controller and so on - at least some of those I've repaired in the past wouldn't have that...

"It’s only slightly more difficult than changing a lightbuld", I would think, depends on your definition of "slightly".

That being said, I have an EeePC 1000HE that I'd love to try it on.
