      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      You DO NOT want an integrated computer. Theres absolutly no reason to have an computer integrated with a screen especially in a car unless you get one for mad cheap cause the people had to throw out the whole thing when the computer gets too slow to use.

      I run into dumb products like this all the time. At school they had this really cool bigscreen tv that was like 60" with light pens and everything. The screen still looked really good, problem was it was like 5 years old and was connected to a 233mhz computer that could only run Win95 so it was like death just trying to run a power point presentation on it and it was impossible to upgrade so they had to spend like 15 grand on a new one rather then being able to spend $300 to just upgrade the computer.

        The same could be said about the EPIA all the devices are ingrated on the motherboard. one goes out go buy a new motherboard.

        after sending a e-mail to there support it sounds like most of the parts are standard Computer (except the cdrom and hard drive which are laptop) so other then voiding the warrenty you could replace memory, video card, hard drive, etc... if you wanted too.

        If I had room for it a 15" touchscreen like this would rock, but I can't even shoe horn a 7 inch anywhere with out having more fiberglass skills then I do.

        P.S. I doubt a 2.4Ghz P4 will be too slow to use for a while.

          Why???

          its fast enough, it has a touch screen, uses standard computer parts except for Cd and HD (which are laptop) its not that bad a price considering the size of the screen

            it's too HUGE, it will run too HOT, it is proprietary so i bet you can't replace jack on it if something breaks...


            didn't see a price but i am sure it's overpriced. It's a unit designed for your desk, not your car.

              Because there are more powerful computers that are actually designed for a car use.
