Our System - Part 2: Display Options
"It's been a few weeks since we updated the progress on our system, so here we go... This installment covers our LCD selection and configuration issues.

Thanks to the Mac mini's standard VGA connector, there are quite a few LCD options that will work with it. The most popular touch-screens for in-car use seem to be the 7" Xenarc 700TSV and 7" Lilliput 619GL-70NP. The Xenarc is a bit more expensive, but has a brighter screen that is easier to see in the daylight. Both displays have been effectively used in numerous in-car installs, and either would work quite well. We chose to go with the 7" Xenarc 700TSV, a touch-screen version that includes 1 VGA input, 2 RCA video inputs and 1 RCA audio input. The only connection that we really need is the VGA connector, but the additional inputs would allow us to add something like a Sony Playstation 2 down the line. If you don't need the extra inputs you can opt for the 7" Xenarc 700TS, and it will save you about $20. If you plan to control your system with a USB or Bluetooth controller instead of the touch-screen, then you can opt for the 7" Xenarc 700Y or 700YV and save a few more bucks. We ordered our 700TSV from mp3car.com for $379. The display shipped out the same day, and we received it three days later."

How much would a 7" Xenarc 700Y or 700YV cost in US $ and do you have a source for the specs on the screen. I am looking for a reliable screen that can be used not in a car but elsewhere, say where ever it could be plugged in. The only low cost types here look not well made.
