Very distracting giant white blur, or that would be pretty good.

I still have a blue Compaq IA-1 at home with the rare, and sadly non-functional, Ethernet port in it. I also had the Intel dot.station until it's integrated CRT finally died. I think I kept the processor box for a while, but it was a PIII based system, so not terribly swift. Note, I got both of them from eBay.

For what they were, they weren't bad. They were sort of like tablets before tablets existed, in that they really only surfed the web - until you pulled the hard drive and installed full Linux or Windows on it.

It is a neat little machine, and completely silent. In fact, it looks amazing until you turn it on and see the complete crap LCD screen on it. :squint: It topped out at 800x600 and had awful pixel bleed issues. Not too bad on mostly white websites, but on darker pages it was very noticeable. They also had small plastic cases and passive cooling that meant the processors were seriously under-clocked. I had a second IA-1 I cut a hole in to allow for a full size heatsink/cooler, and it ran FAR faster. (I managed to get an AMD K6-2 running in one with a little hanky-panky and it actually performed nicely - but the end machine wasn't even close to silent anymore)

Also, they went cheap on the keyboard and used an IR port. This meant it could be easily blocked and only worked with direct line of sight. The wireless keyboard on the dot.station, while absurd in so many ways, was actually better. (the one I got was originally from Spain, so I had to remap the keys)

Let's just say there is a reason they didn't exactly take over the world.

I'll just have to build a pi-based one out of wood, with a Bluetooth KB.

Hey, if you like the case, I can mail you a fully functioning one IA-1. My wife wants me to dump all my old tech gear anyway, and I haven't pulled it out of its box in ages. As I mentioned, the screen is crap, but if you can find a replacement display, the case is in perfect condition.

Nah. It's an ugly beige, and, well... *giggle* I like wood. *giggle*

Would be crazy-easy to build an enclosure for a Fire Tablet, actually.

The remaining one is dark blue, actually. I can't find a picture of it, but it is definitely not beige.
