OK in the process of buliding my system, I have figured out (as I have on several other ocassions), I am very, very frugal. I am attemping to put together a system that will handle MP3, GPS, and DVD, using the most minimal hardware that I can scrape together from my computer grave yard. Most of the systems on this board are flat out awesome, but many are pretty expensive. I doubt that I am alone on this, so I'm asking, who has the most minimal setup (hardware wise), utilizing it for more than just playing MP3's. Right now I'm beta testing an old Thinkpad laptop 150MHZ MMX, with 64MB ram, running DVD via a DVD-to-Go card and pcmcia DVD player, with a 20 gig HD with GPS, DIVX,mp3, etc. I purchased the DVD-to-go and DVD rom drive for $35 on ebay , thinking that it couldn't even come close to playing DVD's smoothly. Well I was flat out wrong, they play flawlessly on this system. Can anyone out there beat this setup?
