    you see.. for the most part, the people here do not want a "ready to go" package. for the very same reason we don't buy compaq or dell's. we build our own. we like a challenge.

    My $300 setup consists of 100% COTS parts.. Socket 7 mobo, ISA video card, SB AWE64 Gold (with RCA outs), ethernet, 8.4gb 3.5in hd, p133, ram.. and a CrystalFontz LCD.. You don't see Brent (from CFontz) on here trying to hawk his LCD's to us....

    (btw, COTS=Commodity Off The Shelf)

    georgeo,

    Can I just state the fact that gabriale didn't post a message in almost every topic? Also her message was better written then you one line posts. Another little bit, she already started a recent thread about small pcs and you really should not have started a new thread about the same thing. You really sould have posted in the Commerical Hardware. As far as I see you created an account to post your product. I don't see any other post that lead me that you are a fellow mp3car owner. I believe what nester said:
    However, I believe it's more for the members of the mp3car.com community to sell things they have. Just because you can sign up for the BBS doesn't mean you're a member of the community. Do you even have a "mp3car"? My impression is that this forum is for things like "Hey, i have a DC-DC PSU i'm not using anymore, anyone want it?"
    Final note: Yes this product is interesting. I would never by it because of the reviews I've heard and what about if something breaks? But most (if not all) of us aren't going to spend $999.00 for you product on our caputer projects. We can spend $100-$400 for our carputers. Plus there is more satafaction knowing that we made it ourshelves.

    Ditto.

    Sorry man, if you are making a profit off selling multiple units (you hope to anyway) then you don't belong in here. Most folks here already know what you are doing...so just follow the ettiquette. You argueing certainly won't help you sell any of your computers...

    Besides, I'm of the opinion that if I want your product, I'll run a search for it on Yahoo or the like. If you have the best product for the best price, I'll find you.

    One concern that really makes your post look like a "spam" add is your topic title - "the best." Most of our BBS community members are here looking for help on building an "MP3car", looking to help someone else build one, or looking to sell something we no longer need (but already have). We don't enjoy having to look at an ambiguous topic just to find out what it's about.

    The topic should have a few words concerning the specific content so I don't have to enter the thread just to find out what is there.

    Your topic title "the best" looks to me like a marketing type ploy to get me to look at it just for exposure.

    This is one thing which really gives us (me) a bad first impression.Whether or not I care about your computer for sale.

    Please close out the thread so I don't look at it again by accident.

    georgeo:
    I'm going to give you the same peice of advice I gave gguy--dont waste your time trying to sell commercial mobile computers here. Everyone who visits this board can build a system cheaper than they can buy one after reading posts for about 10 minutes. all you are gonna gain by posting advertisements is a lot of flak, and its just gonna **** you off. I sell systems at car shows, and I make damn good money, but its not worth the effort to try to sell them here. I make about $2000 profit on the systems I sell because the guys I sell to dont know any better. the guys here do know better, and knowing that I can not waste my time by tring to rip them new assholes
