Good Morning,

I've had an idea, and I'm going to need a flat computer monitor. It can't be any bigger than a 19", and must be really cheap but functioning.

Ideally someone has one with a broken casing or stand, as these bits will end up in a skip.

Go on, help a brother out....

Summat to do with Raspberry Pi, I'll wager.

I have several but I'm keeping them for my own Myth frontends.

The World is going to go Raspberry Pi mad. I am just disappointed that most the projects I have seen so far are a little mundane and obvious. (numerous media/audio players etc. arcade simulators and the like) I want to see some real blue sky stuff come out.

I have a few projects lined up myself but wont be releasing details yet.

Hmmi have a monitor actually. Would anyone know how hard it is to run just a psx emulator with one or 2 usb ports and a mouse port?

Still none the wiser as to what Raspberry Pi is. In fact now I'm more confused.

Whats an ARM GNU/Linux box?

I don't think what I'm doing is anything to do with it. Except it will be in a box.

Cheaper and faster abroad. I know labour is cheaper but surely an order that large and possible recurring order, why cant we match it!?

Raspberry pi is a simlified pc i think. Very basic so that buyers can learn to write pc prgrams and such.
