    Raspberry Pi with Touch Display in Stand - RPi in case integriert

    Hello UDOO Team,
    on Tuesday, 26. Sep. 17 I ordered the 7inch HDMI/USB Touch Display and 28. Sep. 17 I received the Display via UPS. That's great and fast and the display and touch are working fine under Windows 10 64 Bit.
    But what I'm missing is a case to put the display in. In the moment it's laying on the table beside the UDOO X86, but that not looking good. Why isn't it possible to design ad case where the display is mounted and the UDOO X86 is mounted on the rear?
    I have 2 other single computer (RPI with touch display in a stand and a Latte Panda with touch screen in a case mounted the same way (see pictures). Why isn't possible to get a case for UDOO & Display in the same way? I think this is needed? Thanks for comments.

    At least the Raspberry Pi case you show is 3rd party case, I don't know if there exists official case or not.

    The LVDS touch screen display for the UDOO Quad was clearly a device to be integrated by a manufacturer, I can imagine that the new touch display of UDOO is more or less the same, a product for makers, not consumers. As the LVDS screen was very vulnerable I eventually bought a consumer device.

    @Markus: You are right, it's a third party case - even a Kickstarter project - https://smarticase.com/products/smartipi-touch
    @Maurice: I think if UDOO want to sell the display in there shop - it's not only for makers because the most people bought the X86 via Kickstarter are consumers. Therefore, I think, the UDOO team can think about building a case for the display.
    The display for the LattePanda was made by a Kickstart baker from Germany with a 3D Printer for about 15€.
    I think - everything is better than laying naked on the table.

    With makers I meant consumers who are tinkerers with hardware and software, not makers of products that are then sold to consumers. It would be nice if the additional products were a bit more friendly tough.

    Wow! 11.6 inch touch-display, keyboard, camera, 128GB SSD, WiFi, BlueTooth, Microphone, Speakers, Windows OS, ... $200. That sure looks like a bargain. But, with a 3.2 AH battery and maximum run time of ten hours, one wonders just how valid the 48 WH power consumption figure is.

    Are you sure that has a touch screen?

    The eBay listing identifies it as:

    Model: TMB117
    Type: Notebook/Laptop MPN: NX.VCGAA.015

    Specs here and here indicate:

    Input Devices
    Keyboard Yes
    Pointing Device Type TouchPad
    TouchPad Features Multi-touch Gesture

    So, apparently touch is supported, but not on the screen.

    It's not for getting a Laptop/Notebook because I have such devices. I want to use the UDOO for something else but the touch screen laying naked on the table is not ok for me. I think, when UDOO sells the touch screen, they can think about a case/stand for this display and maybe a possibility to mount the UDOO X86 board on the backside of this display (see the pictures above).
    Maybe a forum user / member is able to print such a case in a 3D printer. I got one for my Latte Panda made by a Latte Forum user with a 3D printer (see white case in the pictures above).
