    It would be really cool if there was a decent mini PC with a pico-projector for less then 50€.

    I can’t find any that can match your price target. One solution would be to use: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-drop-shipping-LED-lamp-Cheap-Mini-LCD-Portable-Projector-with-VGA-and-remote-control-micro/727567860.html with a mini PC with an AV output. You’d have to buy an AV cable with 3.5mm connectors on both sides. Total cost could be around $100, but the resolution is only 320×240.

    Another options is PhoneSuite Lightplay (http://www.phonesuit.com/phonesuit-lightplay-android-mobile-video-projector), but it’s $360.
    I also wrote about a Android full projector before http://www.cnx-software.com/2012/11/10/444-smartbeam-android-4-0-media-player-projector-powered-by-telechips-tcc8925/, but it’s not mini at all, and not around 50 Euros…

    Thanks . The first one you mentioned looks interesting but I’m not sure how usable it would be with that resolution. I wonder if my netbook that runs Windows 7 would detect it as a 1024×768 display or it would detect the exact resolution of 320×240.

    Looks like a rebadged SmartQ U7. They’re even using a touched up version of the U7′s promo image.

    @Brad Linder
    Yes, you’re right., and the SmartQU7 has been available for a little while.

    So now I know why pico-projectors aren’t more popular: they’re expensive, and the resolution is too low.
