  • What touchpad device to get?

    Hi,

    I am wondering what touchpad device is the best to get based on (cost, ability, etc). I do not want to pay a fortune for it, but I want it to be able to control the devices in my house.

    I appreciate any feedback.
    Cheers,
    Bob

    look on ebay for the fujitsu 3400

    you can get them for around $500, a good tablet,400 mhz system with a nice touch screen and can handle win 2000. I use several of them
    detail of setup in profile. Link to videos of my projects there as well. Over 300 scripts running every min and counting

      Does the screen respond to touch or is it limited to a pen input?

        Check out the touch screen forum on this board. There are several lower priced options lately. Prolly the most promising is the $225 Kiosk PC - several have it and it works good for touchpad interface.

          I wanted touchscreen type functionality but didn't want anything too obtrusive. So I went for PDA (with built in wirelees) and I'm very impressed with the results. Clearly it lacks in size compared to a proper touchscreen but it has the advantages of:-
          o needing no installation (you just plug in the power and go)
          o You can pick it up and roam
          o Works with pen or finger
          o Supports Touchpad skins
          o Can offload some of the processing i.e. Outlook on pda for email
          o High WAF (It's become "My PDA")

          Just my 2 penny worth.

            Phill - what PDA do you use ? How long can you use it before you have to recharge it. I've read wireless eats batteries in most devices in about 2 hours max.

              I use an DELL AXIM X3i. It's a great little device, light, thin and responsive. Bettery life is a bit of a problem, 3 hrs is probably a little ambitious, but I find that I only need it for a few minutes at a time, then it's back in its cradle.

                I leave the PDA docked most of the time so battery life isn't an issue. It's the HP4100.
