Hardware differences between motherboards


New Member
Hey folks. New to the forum and hope to get some help with a project I've been thinking about. After watching the video of that guy making his own iPad, it peaked my curiosity as to how difficult that would be. I've worked with computers for a couple decades now and electronics components for a couple years so the basic I get. But in looking for components for this potential project, it got me to wondering if there if there were certain differences between the motherboards and onboard components that would restrict the motherboards I could consider for it. Specifically, I'm wondering what differences I would find that would keep me from using the MB out of a non-touchscreen laptop.

In any case, it's just in the initial idea phase so let's see what ya'll have to add.
