Hi,
I have a question, I love this small computer, and would like to use it as a all in one with my spare display I got left from a Dell repair.
What type of the connector is on the Panda? I have on the Dell Inspiron 15 7537 the
WISTRON DOH50
eDP CABLE
50.47L09.001

the display is even a touch, but I could live without touch, just if display would work that would be great, so what is the display connector on the Panda?
Does any one tried this set up with the Dell display?
Thanks

It is a mipi connector, see
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=37&p=2038&hilit=Mipi#p2038

As understood things, it is a custom display connector
I do not think they ever posted info on the touch interface/ connector

OK than I'm afraid that will not work, unless I would get a custom reduction, so I'm thinking about this http://www.ebay.com/itm/HDMI-DVI-VGA-Au ... 1076658712
Will contact the seller to find out if there are any boards with touch connector.
Still thou now I would have to power 2 items the panda and the board, not very clean solution
