AoG Computer/Display hardware

Has anyone been using hardware other than a touchscreen tablet/laptop to run AoG?

I saw this display the other day, Seeedstudio 10.1" 1200x1980 HDMI IPS, no touch though.

That got me thinking about how an Intel NUC would work with an external display. I expect it should work well although the price, once you've factored in RAM, storage and a touch display, could be higher. The appeal to me is the ability to run Windows 7 instead of 10.

Does anyone have any nice, bright 12"+ touch display links?

This looks interesting. Full HD, touch, IPS, good viewing angle, good brightness (?).

Not sure if the link will work since stupid aliexpress sticks you on mobile site all the time. Anyhow.

120US 17" Brightness is okay, not the best though.

I don't think the brightness will be enough. I'm convinced that you need a display with 1000 nits (cd/m2) minimum because then you can actually read it in direct sunlight. I just picked up a Mk5 CF-19 toughbook on ebay for ~$200. It would be nice to find a bright touchscreen display because then you could swap out hardware on the computer side and not be limited by processors etc. The hunt continues...

Too bad none of those reflective displays we were promised years ago ever worked out. My dream display for this application would basically be like a magazine surface. 100% reflective for bright sunlight but with good color. I was just thinking today how much nicer it is to work with my old John Deere brown box displays than any of the newer color screens. I think even a high resolution (100 dpi) 1 bpp LCD display would be quite useful but no one makes anything like that. E-Ink comes close but is too slow to refresh for AOG purposes.

I was thinking about getting one of these to try as an all in one solution, 12v power input and multiple output ports https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32848778325.html?pid=808_0000_0101&spm=a2g0n.searc h-amp.list.32848778325&aff_trace_key=1f9ceb9253934a7 f854f6273f1970797-1553985850218-06442-VnYZvQVf&aff_platform=msite&m_page_id=5267amp-GDscoC25oo75ay1o2p7C-g1557484482509

I run AOG on a NUC, screen it is mounted to is not really bright enough to use easily in tractor.
Ipad mini running Duet app is good, mounts easy up high out of sunlight with a bit of sticky backed velcroe.
Reckon a phone would be okay if using keyboard also. Maybe Splashtop app if android, but have not tried it yet, better performance with wired connection rather than wireless.
