Adding an extra display to my laptop.


I bought on of these 9,7" LCD displays about a year ago and and last weekend I finally got some mood to build a case for it. Originally I planed to use it as display for my home automation system but this is currently far away from becoming reality. So I decided instead to use it as second screen on my work laptop I got this one cheap on ebay and since it has a native DisplayPort it's works like a charm.


The case is of course 3D-printed.


The adapter is from abusemark.com and shipped from Japan in a fair amount of time and is working fine. I have an older version as the current one but had no trouble at all.
I mountet the power switch outside but I think this is optional.
