The optional 7′ bay monitor can be angled to suit your application and retracts back into the drive bay when not in use.  It can be connected to the main system as a secondary display or serve as a primary display for the second Mini ITX system.

  • LCD display panel
  • Touch screen

Unfortunately the 7′ LCD monitor wasn’t available at the time of our review so we didn’t get to actually play with it.  Hopefully it will become available in the near future.
