    Rafster's CarPC for sale...

    OK... Well.. It's time for me to leave this site... for good.....

    Nah, just kidding around.

    I'm selling my CarPC because I'm in dire need of some $$.

    Here are the specs:

    Dell Latitude L400 laptop.
    PIII 700MHz/m, 256MBRAM (MAX), 40GB HD, 8X DVD (External)

    Now, here's the cool stuff....

    I "took it apart" and I had DJIK make a plexiglass cover for the motherboard area. It now has 2 fans instead of just 1 keeping it cool. DJIK also soldered on an extended power button for it. Right now as you can see from the pictures, it has a pretty long witre attached to it. I have the button and all unattached. so all you would have to do is put it on.. and it works.

    For power I have a Dell Auto/Air adapter. You can modify it so that it attaches straight to a battery lead instead of the cig lighter adapter. I chose not to, in case I wanted to bring the car pc into another car...

    I'll also include one of those laptop cooler stands, I used it so that the bottom of the laptop wouldn't burn my carpet by accident.. never really got that hot though.. Also, I have 2 AC Power adapters for it, and I have a port replicator for it.. I'll include that too...

    Price: We'll start off at $275 Shipped/obo - Lowered

    I just wanted to add that I did the PLEXIglass job. NOT fiberglass.

    If you look closely at the first two pics you'll see the clear cover on top.
    I also added the fans and the 19-to-5V regulator to power the fans. This thing runs very cool even at near 100% CPU load.

    Finally, I've extended the power-button cable for, I believe, almost 10 feet.

    Good luck with the sale Raf!
    For Sale: Carputer (CarPC) & RCA Y-Adapter
    Newsflash: Take a look at my unsold stuff above, thanks!
    Up Next: Make an OBD to Serial cable & Redo the "MMI buttons"
