  • Ready to install

    Finally heres the intended install:

    512mb stick
    40gb 2.5in drive
    DVD Rom drive

    Powered by:150watt inverter to AC to DC 12v adapter to PW70

    Driven by: XP Home Ed

    I would prefer to use a standard mini screen with keyboard input as too many problems reported with touchscreens.

    Does this setup sound like overkill. Any comments greatly appreciated.

    you dont need an inverter w/ the pw70.

    Its a DC-DC powersupply. Just hook it up to a like 12v source in ur car and then to the pc.

    Where in the car, is a good question.

    And it doesn't sound like overkill.
    Overkill to me is when people put P4 2.4Ghz 800MHz FSB, 1GB DDR, Nvidia GeForce 4 or whatever...

    But I plan on a similar system to yours. Just maybe 256MB. And making the drives USB. So I can take them inside and update. Instead of dealing w/ my WiFi
    And I'm not sure about OS yet. I want something that will load up FAST. and is relatively small.

      You want regulated 12V to your PW70, not straight from the battery. Check forum. An alternative as you suggested is to use an inverter and a 12 Volt brick.
