Default Small LCD screens 7" - 10" where to buy?

Where does one get these ... VGA or DVI input?

I know ThinkGeek has somes, I don't know those products well but they are USB (entirely). If you find some VGA or DVI models, choosing one shouldn't matter. At that screen size, you won't ever reach a high enough resolution to see the difference.

Never used a USB monitor before ...
Does that mean a system would not need a video card at all?

I also would like to know where to get VGA or DVI LCDs in this sort of size range. For applications where USB cannot be used.

Theoretically yes. Except to set it up the first time .

@MacJunky : I found this Lilliput UK · 859GL-80NP/C · 8 inch monitor with VGA and composite video. It seems to have a very specific usage but it's a start.

IIRC, SuperGrover ran a small screen for a period of time. Seems to me it caused him nothing but problems.....
