Yeah, it's a bit slow but, I'm sure that'll change soon.
But, to have a box THAT size (4" x 4.3" x 1.2") with THREE USB ports, built-in video (VGA out), built-in sound (Line-out and Mic-in), built-in serial, RJ-45 for network AND 802.11b/g, and an internal 2.5" HD...that's just amazing. And....AND...it runs on 12V so you could easily power with a basic Carnetix P1900 controller or something.
It's not upgradable (even the memory is soldered onto the board) but, that's still a lot of machine in an itty-bitty box for $335.00!
2003 Lexus SC430 - Black with Ecru. VaisTech & NavTool with Centrafuse integrated into factory nav screen (hands-free Bluetooth, Voice Command, mp3's, videos, HD Radio, Sirius Sat. radio, DVD, Internet, & digital gauges (via OBD-II)), & LuxLink module.
thats pretty cool... it is a little slow i dont think many frontends can take advantage of it.. maybe linux.. or maybe they will get an atom processor in one of those things that may spice things up a little
very true, that most likely wouldnt be good for running a front end, however......what about those wanting a dedicated machine just for the vehicle itself, like obdii, tuning, gauges, that fusion brain thing, etc etc?
i would think that might be ideal......power consumption is more than likely also lower, so it could potentially be left on at all times, if using a ssd and turn the screen off when leaving the car.
turbo timers, nitrous timers, realtime guages/diagnostics....etc etc...run something llike TinyXP. i'm not sure if a program has been made yet to emulate it, but vista has speedboost, where plugging in a usb thumbdrive is like plugging in more ram. if such a 3rd part program exists, dedicate that rear port to that, and run everything else off the front two.
