I'm planning a build to have a pc inside a coffee table. The table top would lift up (sort of like a laptop) and it would have a glass window to display the computer inside. A tray could pull out with the keyboard and mouse... And I was considering putting a screen in the top, attached to the bottom of the table top, again sort of like a laptop.
This would require the screen to be as thin as possible, and probably require a vesa mount as well. The problem is I can't find any ultra-thin monitors that have vesa mounts. Anyone able to help me out?
You did not even say size. You know they make some nice thin OLED TVs right? But it's a shame to stick that into a table.
As far as LCD goes you can mount the panel into the lid of your table why not. LCDs are not that thick unless you have an expensive FALD one, laptop LCDs are thinner but also small.
Yup, like the pook said... That would likely be your best bet. I don't know what size of a screen you are aiming for, and how far down the DIY rabbit hole you are wanting to go, but you can also snag controller boards and laptop screens off ebay/aliexpress for pretty cheap.
im looking for something around 24 inches. And I'm building the table myself, building the computer myself, rigging everything up myself. I will go about as far down the DIY rabbit hole as I need to short of building my own controller circuit into a breadboard and busting out an arduino to program it.
