          Well it's only gonna run Windows 98, Winamp, and GPS so it doesn't need to be very powerful. Anyone else have a suggestion of which to use?

            They're both old slow beasts, so I don't think it would matter one way or another.
            I'd bump the RAM up in whichever one you use, specifically for the GPS.
            Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
            How about the Wiki?

              I guess I'll bump the ram up in the desktop since it'd be cheaper than laptop ram.

                I just looked on the desktop and it says it on it 120V - 4A and 240V - 2A... could that be right? If so, that's 480 watts. The Opus won't power that will it?

                  Dot worry. Opus will power it just fine

                      But is that 4 Amps, and if so... that's 480watts. So how can the 150 Watt opus run that? Also... how would I hook the Indash motorized mp3car lcd up to the opus?
