I'm fairly new to this whole thing (still waiting for my first Pi (and it's sad just how excited I am about that!)).
I want to recycle some of my old tech to use as a screen (short term at least) for my pi ... I have a couple of options:
1. an old laptop screen (laptop is dead) 2. Kindle Fire (that was rendered somewhat obsolete due to the acquisition of a larger tablet and the kindle app)
I was just wondering if anyone had any advice as to which would be the better option ... ideally, I'd like to have a physical connection between the two, I'm just not certain how practical that'd be.
For the record, I'm more than happy to take the kindle apart to take the screen out if that seems like a more viable option.
Any advice from people who have done similar would be greatly appreciated. or even just thoughts.
I've seen similar things done, but mostly it seems to involve using the kindles software, I just want to use a screen as a screen, not create a terminal within the kindle etc. and have to link things by wifi etc.
