  • BOOK PC

    An interesting barebones Celeron based pc that has a very small (and upright) footprint, network card built in but no serial ports (save for PS2 keyboard and PS2 mouse). Might be worth a look if anyone is starting anew. I have purchased one for my auto mp3 player and removed the cdrom and floppy drive for use elsewhere.

    If you are interested in these units let me know I can configure it the way you want it. I'll also try to make it as affordable as possible. You will be impessed by its size!

    For a very limited time I will offer the following kits at a low price if you mention MP3CAR with your order.

    BOOKPC, AMD 500, 32 MB SDRAM, 52x CDROM and an 8.4 gig HD for $490

    BOOKPC, Celeron 433, 32 MB SDRAM, 52x CDROM and an 8.4 gig HD for $500

    Don't forget to say you saw the prices here! If you want to work out a config plus or minus somethings email me.

            In case anyone is having problems with the url link.....Clicking on the link for Dansdata doesn't seem to work for me but it is valid and works if I type it in the location window.

                Another possibility for BookPC sized systems is from Amptron. The BKi810 uses a similar Intel 810 chipset. You can pick them up with a 52x CD drive, no CPU/RAM/HD for less than $200 bucks. I've seen them around for $190. http://www.amptron.com/html/bki810.html

                  just my opinion pcchips suck

                  ive got a old m/b and its the worst purchace i have ever made

                  before you buy one read the fine print about the ram slots you may be suprised to find that you cannot put in more than 1 ram chip if using the onboard video card

                  sorta like the old hp computers

                  pcman

                  stay away from pc chips they may be cheap but thats cause they are crap

                    This is kinda off topic but, I was wondering if it was possible to use the lcd screen out of an I-Opener system and use it in a Book Pc system!!! If anyone knows how to do this I want to know!!!

                      Actually it is something I just started to look into. There are a large number of IOpener websites with hacks out there but so far no one that has used the screen as a stand alone.

                        I know that you can use the lcd as a stand alone unit. You just have to get a lcd controler card for it. But if anyone could do it useing the book pc I want to know how.

                          The i-opener lcd is junk, don't waste your time. I think a 4x40vfd is about the best car display to date.
