If the computer is not (a) the computers already in the car, eg. NAV/SAT/RAdio, etc; (b) a tablet or linux or a windows computer, then I can only think of something like the car computer nav/radio whatever for control and a 7" screen to display the results. Everything else is done remotely, by a server.

Why? I don't know. If 100Mbps LTE's network are for real in the future...it's a possibility at least for urbanites with strong signal.

As a consequence, my carputer would be at home, maybe my development PC...LOL. I would just hit play/pause and do voice search in the car etc.

I'm not a fan of the idea, but?
^ lol, i just checked thin-client prices:

this is the cheapest one newegg had:

for $90 you can get a atom board...

not to mention, a thin client would also require a server(to build brand new, something like $800..) and a mobile data connection(aren't those cards like $30/mo?) thanks, but the atom board is cheaper and doesn't drop out when driving through a tunnel...
