  • What display

    im sure you guys will have been asked this b4 but your the best people to ask.

    I want to put a computer into my car, the cpu etc.. is no problem but im not sure what is best to do about the display, i thought of the following options:

    1. get a laptop and use its screen with the vga output from the pc.

    2. use a LCD that has a composite feed and use some sort of converter but i dont know what?

    Any help guys???

    Top right corner of the page, second button from the right.

    First laptop screens are no straight forward VGA, as we all know it, to us an LCD from a laptop you'll probably need a controller card (expensive) and some fiddeling.

    Does anyone have a good site on this?

    For a composite screen you'll need either a scan converter or a video card with composite out (all in wonder or the like)

    Key things to think about.

    Size, Resultion, Cost, Technical ability

    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows? (Does what it says on the URL) (The new car, with zero rust!) (My other site)
    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)
