Not everyone ships to Europe, so they're not visible to me. ;)

Also there's the problem of 120V vs 240V. :)


Only if it doesn't use a power brick. Step-down transformers are available for decent prices, too.

True. :)

It would be a step-up transformer BTW. ;)

I've been using a win10 tablet for this. I followed Phill's guide here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSk9S1bkRS8
Works pretty well for me.
Here's mine in action... https://youtu.be/XkR2pV2bpoI (Tablet has a movie as a wallpaper and is velcroed to the sidepanel)
I've seen some Intel Atom powered rackmount servers that might work. You'll have to add a MIDI and audio interface though.

Sadly it doesn't work for me. From earlier on in this thread:

And there's the issue with power, as the builtin battery wears way faster with continuous use. Also, you'll need an OTG-hub with charging functionality, as you'll also need to connect a MIDI to USB interface to it at the same time.

I'll stick to the laptop at the moment, as it isn't possible to switch my display back to my DOS machine (connected via DVI) without rebooting it. So also running it on my main PC isn't an option.
