Pixel Qi on a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 Netbook

It is actually quite easy to install the panel using the DIY kit

It has been a week since we reported on Pixel Qi's determination to come up with better displays.

In the meantime, the Pixel Qi DIY kits sold by MAKE magazine have been acquired by some daring users.

Truthfully, you don't need to be all that brave to actually change the display of a compatible laptop, in this case the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 netbook.

The whole process takes just 15 minutes and, at the end of it, your netbook will be sunlight-readable.

You'll even get to choose between having it act like an E Ink panel or a standard LCD.

Either way, the visibility and power gains are clear, even though the warranty of your laptop won't survive.

Check out the video above, that the folks at NetbookNews set up for your, and our, convenience.
