  • Would this be a good place to start?

    For $160.00 would this be a good system to start with if I only wanted to play MP3's?

    To add to this I was thinking 128M ram, Celeron 700Mhz, and 40 gig.

    can't tell if it has a pci expansion slot.Doesn't say anything.
    Other than not having TV-OUT this seems like quite a deal.....specially the 5.1 audio

      I'm pretty sure it doesn't have an extension slot. With the sound on board, would I need a PCI extension slot?

        search on this bbs for BookPC. There are a few people using them...you will need a way to supply power...inverter or custom dc-dc power adapter.

          I was just about to buy one too, BUT

          if you ever want to add anything you're kinda screwed.

          I wouldn't want a system with no expansion slots, and who knows what quality the onboard sound is.

          But the footprint, damn, IT IS SMALL. You can add a GPS, but I wouldn't count on being able to add much more. I guess you have to just look at exactly what you want to do with the system.

          Oh yeah, and price out everything before you commit to anything, you'll be surprised how quickly you'll hit the $700+ mark. $160 here, $80 chip, $130 hd, $300 screen, etc, etc... woah $700!
