i got an idea for a fun project. im going to take the mainboard for a framework laptop and make a tablet. i originally thought it could be done by removing the display, and putting a touch display were the keyboard/trackpad are currently. that might serve as a prototype, but i think it would be fun to try and make an even smaller one.
i dont think this is a good idea, but rather a fun one. as for how useful this device might be…
this would outperform MOST apple ipads in terms of raw performance. the ipad pro with the M1 would be an exception. in the 2nd smaller version, a slightly smaller battery would further decrease battery life. both versions would be heavier and louder then other tablets.
of course having the choice of OS is another advantage.
im not sure if i will actually try this, because this is a bit beyond me, but you never know. if/when new mainboard options become available i plan to upgrade, and this is one of many creative ideas offering a new home for the current board
