So am I right in thinking you will have 3 inches of unused space as you said that the 12x18 has a digaonal length of 24 inches?

hmm, i dont think so, i have calculated a diagonal of 21.63"
pitagorean theorem says: in a rect triagle, the sum of the squares built on the cathets is equal to the square built on the ipothenusa.
(12^2+18^2)^-2=21.63
may be i'm wrong though Cheesy
i didn't found any monitor 21" with 16/10 aspect, only 4/3.
even in the 12*19" Wacom III A3 wide the maximum diagonal is ~22.5".
this is the larger tablet if we except the Ultrapad A2.

edit: about the 24", i was referring to my 24" CRT monitor that has an effective viewable image of 22.5"

Drawingboard.org?

Not sure about that case.  Try the jitters thing with tablet on top of screen and screen on top of tablet before you start trying to take that apart.  Cos it'll need glue to get back together. Roll Eyes

i hope to have no jitter or random click problem, and i'll have my tanaxiq Grin
the software seems to be Alias Sketchpad but it's Artrage 2.0 from Ambientdesign http://www.ambientdesign.com/artrage.html the best 20 bucks i ever spent.
there is also a downloadable free version that has less tools but its good to give it a try. it's sweet to use with tablet, pressure and tilting sensitive. you'll know what the tilting is to use.

From the photos I would say you have to pry open the plastic part which has the model sticker on it, where the stand joins the monitor. Once that is removed you might see some screws for undoing the reset.

With the Samsung 152T I had to pry open the front face of the monitor very carefully, they make everything like this now... "No sir I don't like it!"

Try using an old credit card and stick it in the edge, then slide it around, you should be able to take it out, dont put it in too far though

hi all,
finally my monitor was opened, it accepted an old Epson card. i cut the card in many stripes, inserted all around the frame and finally it was opened.
it is very well engineered, there is a metal box for the power supply that is very easy detacheable, a single logic board connected via a flat flexible cable on the top of  the panel.
not yet completely dismantle, tomorrow the photographic service.

...Vince

thank you for your offer Chems, already done Grin
