        i have got an RM tablet in my car. My friend is the ICT manager at my old school and has just bought one of these to see what they are like.

        they are OK but i must admit a bit slow - he is running some software from the memory card slot which is dreadfully slow.

        Having said that so small and durable and no problems with power!! It does come with Linux on it though which might need to be changed to make the most of Car PC software.

          ummm...what?

          the pc has a VGA input? and not an output? does your screen have a VGA input? or are you thinking RCA?

            That is linked from the FAQs in the link I provided you earlier.
            There's a section there all about screens with several informative write-ups.

              oook...

              so i guess its not a good idea to hook this computer up then to my carputer.... well i guess that kinda sucks... if it has a usb can that control the touchscreen??? and if i use the composite video will the viewing be that bad? any experiences?

              Composite Video to VGA Convert any Video to VGA Monitor will soemthing like that work or no? just wondering to make the picture better

              or this

                Composite video is not touchscreen friendly. For front ends and other media players it may not be bad, but in general it's just not good to use with a small form screen. Too low of a resolution to be practical really.
