    What kind of keyboard is that? Where did you get it? How much was that keyboard? Will you be more specific about the system(display, stereo, amp, and Boot time)?

      That ARM computer is fricking cool, nice setup.
      How do you find winXP runs?
      i suppose you won't notice any bootup delays with a 1Ghz processor.

      Here is a link to that keyboard for tapper, i beleave i saw them at compugeeks too, but i may be mistaken. This guy has an interesting angle on setting them though; doesn't even mention that you can roll 'em up.
      hmmm that reminds me.. later.

        prices on site

        Looks like plycon.com has them cheaper than the ebay auction will end

          I haven't clocked the boot time, but it is pretty quick, less than a minute.

          XP and Cobra V3 run pretty well. Display is a Clarion VRX610, 6.5" wide screen. Stereo is a Nakamichi MB75, amp is an ESX. I haven't connected the computer to the aux input on the Nakamichi yet, I'll do it tomorrow. CDT speakers in the doors. Lots of dynamat. 10" IDQ woofer in the trunk.

          That's the same keyboard I have. I got mine at Radioshack.com (the sign on the store actually says Radioshack.com, it used to be TechAmerica) earlier today. I paid $40. Also got the mouse pointer thingy there.

              Wait a sec...Is that the top of an automatic shifter I see? Shame on you.

                Thanks.

                Hey Charles, I have an all bore 388ci motor on the way (about 3 weeks) along with a 3000 stall converter. Should run low, low 11s NA. Motor will handle a 250 shot of nitrous if I'm so inclined. ;-)

                Yah that's an automatic knob. They are better for drag racing and Atlanta traffic. Seriously, a properly built automatic will eat a 6sp for lunch. Not stock vs stock though.

                Are the latest Cobra 3 files on your FTP server?

                        Oh, its not an actual ARM computers,
                        ARM's have no math co-proc or something like that. In this case, ARM is just the brand of a computer manufac.

                          Maybe so, but not nearly as fun...

                          But I'm very impressed with your install. Looks quite professional.

                              I think it's just because Charles had this big mess of a FTP site with pictures all over the place. It scared me away, anyway.
