    Thought id give my take on this

    You could use a PDA it would solve the touchscreen, space and waterproof issue (using a waterproof bag)

    You could also get a MII 6000E which is a 600mhz Fanless mini-itx which i use and submerge it in a air tight container of oil or as tight as u can without the oil spilling.

    A guy cools his pc totally in oil without any fans and thats a full motherboard
    so a mini-itx thats ment to run without fans would be cooled enough

    I use D3 frodoplayer and movies running at the same time on my MII 6000E with no problems at all so it's robust enough for the dooputer.

    And you can also get a old PDA and use that as your monitor

    If you use sidewindow installed on the PC it turns the PDA into a windows display so you can have frodoplayer or whatever running on the PDA screen and u can also use the PDA's touchscreen as the mouse with this software.

    Thats my take on how you could make a dooputer

    if your still working with ideas for cooling, think along the lines of how the engine of the seadoo gets cooled. Its water, but no rad. Why? Who need a rad when you have a billion gallons of water cooled by the enviroment. Now the big issue here is coming up with components to survive that water.

    well, make sure the cointainer with oil has a heatsink of some sort, otherwise it'd be a waste

    Okay cooling is probably the biggest issue on this build. If the pc was sealed water tight. you could buy a water cooling system from http://www.water-cooling.com/ and run the water lines outside the water tight pc. Im sure you could get heat sinks for the hard drive, processor, memory, video card, etc.

    As for the oil filled pc...The one thing i remember from those is that the hard drive was not in the oil. I guess it wouldn't matter since the drive is probably air tight also. It may work. Using a small EPIA Via motherboard would probably be the best way to go.

    And as for the Bike Pc. I like that idea. Small 12volt battery (from child electric jeep). cheap Laptop. Small 5 inch touch screen or smaller. Maybe headphones for sound. Rear camera Possibly those generators that connect to the wheel. Funny sh#$ though, Last month i was driving to lunch and i saw some guy on a bicycle cruising at 30MPH. He had a helmit and leater jacket on. Funny thing was he wasn't peddling. As i passed him i saw he had a gas engine on the back of it.

    Anyways, good luck with the Dooputer. Im working on a floatputer

    the rest of it, sure, great idea. but i'd have used compact flash for storage. :/

    If you have been arround long enough... you would have seen an overclocker using mineral oil and submerging the entire PC in it.... worked just fine.
