  • Skoda carputer

    hi after reading these boards for a while i thought i would give it a try, as of this afternoon i now have a fully working computer in my 2000 skoda octavia but i thought i would be a bit different as i couldn't bring myself to run something as slow as a EPIA board along with there high prices's and sweat shop build quality, so here goes...

    PC_CHIPS p3 1.5 atx-flex board 32 ---Maplins
    512mb Twinmos RAM 20 ---Ebay
    16x DVD RW 39 ---Ebuyer.com
    180gig Seagate hd 80---Ebuyer.com
    7" fully motorised in-dash touch screen 89---Ebay
    ATI Remote bob 17---Atx-warehouse
    M1-Atx 90w psu 24---Atx-warehouse

    using Media-car as a front end and xp-corp with sp2 stripped down to only 175mb it runs like hell and loads in under 20 seconds , it allows me to play dvd.divx,mp3 internet and gps and most games i throw at it,
    i might add i have been running it for about a month off a car charger now before fitting it.

    I will add some pics as soon as i get a chance in the morning
