  • All-in-One Carpc for $150

    "can you find me a media player that does cd, mp3, dvd, internet, tv, gps, touchscreen and bluetooth? it got about $200 but id like to keep it less then that"

    what do you guys say when you get asked these things? i mean, people see mine and they ask how much i spent, and they are surprised it didnt cost more then $1k, but then they still want "just some of the things you have like all the awesome parts for $200". its a little funny

      +1, I say, "nope". The touchscreen runs $200 by itself.

        Don't forget to tell them about the hours it took you to set everything up-- that alon emakes most people curious in my car stop asking(I spent about 2 months tinkering with it before installing)

        or just tell them that it is not possible-- like getting a bmw for a ford fiesta price... Well maybe, but it would look like this:

          I just laugh.
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?

              hahaha, a true man, man!

              the problem i think is that most people just dont do much of anything, so they dont realize the commitment it takes. they just want plug-n-play, and they want it for $150.

                or... perhaps in their language, the last zero is silent...
                so to us $1,500 is pronounced $150 to them..
                u never know...

                        spend an hour in a wal-mart. you'll see why we're not going to survive as a species.

                        yes i know not ALL wal-mart shoppers are sub-human, but a good majority are. and they're out breeding us.

                          Hmm, swearing in a post, and then you say county when I presume you meant country.

                          Looks like you are showing them.


                          PS any more swearing and an infraction will be given. There was no need for that kind of language. Besides the post you quote is , I believe, by an American about Americans.
