Ok, if this works as good as they say this is pretty amazing. The price is definitely right too.

While netbooks have slim and lightweight designs, their touchpads are often too small, unresponsive, and uncomfortable to use. Installing a touchscreen eliminates those frustrations and adds a whole new world of functionality. With our guidance, you’ll be surfing the Web, flicking through photos, and updating your Twitter feed with a finger.

You’ll find a plethora of options for third-party netbook touchscreens online, but we recommend FidoHub.com. The site offers kits—which include all of the necessary components—for major netbook brands such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, and others. We purchased the $96.08 Solderless Easy and Fun TouchKit for ASUS EeePC 1000/1000H/1000HD/1000HE for our ASUS Eee PC 1000H.

Note: Adding a touchscreen will void your netbook’s warranty, and the upgrade will take about three hours to complete.

Before you get started, gather these items:

Touchscreen kit from FidoHub.com, including the display, wires, and drivers

Flat head screwdriver

Phillips head screwdriver

Tray for keeping loose screws
