    Default Fun little toy for LiveQ users, not for girls! :)

    I picked up one of these little fellas on ebay a few weeks back:-



    Apart from being built like a brick outhouse (Made to a military spec apparently, heated hardrive and everything), it has the advantage of having a touch screen, which is a great deal of fun with LiveQ, and a lot less bother than a seperate monitor touchscreen (although admittedly a lot smaller, no chubby digits!)

    And being ruggedised, you can jab at it to your hearts content without fear of distressing it! and at 70, it's cheaper than a nasty little DMX console.

    If anybody fancies one, these guys seem to have a fair few to shift, I bought mine from there and it comes with a clean operating system install and a 30 day warranty, there are certainly still two up at the moment, they're Itronix Go-Books:-

    Oh, and the keyboard glows in the dark, which is nice!

    That thing looks like a cool toy. Too bad they do not ship over seas.

    I'm afraid I'm not selling one, just pointing to an ebay seller who is!

    This is the link to there shop:-

    If you look for itronix go books, there are a couple up at the moment, one at 80 something and another in bids at 50 something.

    They've sold a load recently, so they may put up more as well!

    Hope this helps!

    there are tons of itronix machines on ebay all the time in the US... they are excellent notebooks... but due to the fact they are serioulsy rugged they have some quirks... like expensive batteries, a mushy keyboard, very heavy metal construction etc

    I did look and they seem to be even cheaper on ebay US!

    I quite like the keyboard, though I primarily bought it for the rugged touchscreen!

    Definitely not a day to day laptop, it does weigh a ton!

    The touchscreen has wear marks, and on a white background, you can see some discolouration. This however doesn't affect operation for what I'm using it for.

    These are well used laptops and by no means pristine!
