              Yea i know

              Ok well the plan
              I want to have a CarPC (laptop will drive it) that will do the following:
              -Play Music Videos (i.e. Mpegs)
              -Play Music (MP3's and maybe CDS.)
              -GPS a must. (I get lost in my own neighborhood.)
              -FM Radio.
              -Touchscreen

              Ok well i have a I have $650 to spend.

              P.S. I have been searching on ebay for a laptop, I dont want to spend more that $200 shipped. On average $150 will get me a 266 to 330MHZ laptop with 128mb of ram in good working condition. Does anyone know if this will be enough. If not what kind of Processor speed and Ram will i kneed to do all that i want it to do?.

              P.S.S. I just missed out on a great deal on ebay for a 700mhz toshiba in perfect condition. It went for $290. I knew i should have bided.

                Buy one with a broken screen, it will be tons cheaper and i doubt 300mhz will be nearly enough.

                  Thanks I actually never thought of that. I looked up broken screen on ebay and found a 700mhz 128Mb Ram and 20gb hd. This might go for cheap so i hope i win.

                    do you think 700mhz is enough to run what i need to run?

                    I have a desktop PC that has 700mhz and it plays videos, DVDs and Mp3s just fine. The only thing i'm worried about is the GPS.
