Re: TFT Module Panel

i've looked into this for a few weeks now (not DSI cos it seems very gray ATM) Ive looked at touchscreen but a 7"touchscreen is £300+ and a standard 7" TFT and a keyboard with trackpad can be 40% of that. If u buy a second hand TFT (with DVI/HDMI) from gumtree or ebay you can have a full raspi set u...

Re: 10" LCD LVDS bundle with capacitive touchscreen and ambi

Well that is nice to know that i wont fry my Pi, but if the touchscreen means running @100% then using the touchscreen and say a graphic front end to control the GPIOs or play something more indepth than bejeweled (thats the vid from chalkboards youtube link) would slow things right down. OTOH Mayby...

Re: 10" LCD LVDS bundle with capacitive touchscreen and ambi

Really wanna see these up close, im reluctant to order 1 from malaysia. But if u watch the youtube vid the PI is maxed at 100% all the time. Mine runs at 4% at idol and around 33% doing simple tasks. Im worried running at 100% constantly will fry the PI or at least reduce life span.
