Pixel Qi screen on an IdeaPad S10-2

Way back in July I ordered a Pixel Qi screen hoping I could make it work with an EeePC 1000HE, but while being shipped I started to doubt. I could be ruining both in the process.

Now 8 months later, I bought a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 for the purpose of putting that idle (and expensive) Pixel Qi screen in. I had the most difficulties trying to remove the bezel undamaged (I failed slightly). But everything else was a breeze. If I have to do this again I will have to be more brutal instead (ironically).

Everything hooked up nicely, and worked fine. Next up is installing Scientific Linux 6 with the ELRepo drivers. And then I am ready for a lot of direct sunlight. This year I can finally work and tan ! Whooohooo :-)

In retrospect, choosing a white Ideapad was probably not the smartest idea for working, but improves tanning... Wonder if the sunglasses make any sense in this equation. Oh well, feedback later...

(The only thing left to replace is the German Qwertz by a Belgian Azerty)
