Large Tablet v Chromebook?
#5
Attracted by the thread topic I'd like to ask for your opinions on *really* large tablets, or as an alternative respective non-touch screens.

The background: A fellow piano player would love to apply "electronic paging" but has defined her need to support 2 score pages side-by-side. According to my calculation a 20+" display should do a sensible job, but there are, in my notion, no real light-weight touch systems around to serve that desire.

My suggestion would be to take a comparably small tablet (or the like) to do some required visual editing by pen, but use a secondary non-touch pure display as piano score display that will only support the performance-wise required bluetooth paging of two full-size pages.

My questions to the community here:

# Could you suggest real light-weight 20+" screens (at least full-hd) that could do such a job on a piano score sheet holder? (I found a 20" and a 22" Dyon display with weights of 2.2 or 2.5 kg so far. Anyone knowing one with less weight?)
# Which systems would support such a system setting? I'd guess Android is not a real choice?
# Is there some "industrial" solution to read two capacitive sensors instead of a foot pedal - which would be more appropriate for a piano in the fashion of two sensor strips on the front face of the piano keyboard?

I discussed support matters of a Linux version (like on the Raspberry Pi, with its abundant possibilities to support alternative sensing equipment) with Mike but he turned down my hope for very comprehensible reasons (*sniff* Sleepy )

Cheers,
Petra
