          it took a little fab work to get it to fit, I dont think I will ever go any smaller in any future installs I do

          I wouldnt mind having a 8" for my gauges though

              Very cool, this really makes me think twice about doing roadrunner. The multiple desktops is an awesome touch too. I'd love to put a screen in the back with some games or something when I have kids. How does Windows 8 do with sound happening on a separate desktop? Can you separate that output to a different place to get a headphone jack in the back seat for what is happening there?
              Computer is in the car, but in a very "raw" install right now.

                  Thanks for the comments guys, I've been downloading and trying out different media apps all day now and I do have to say... I think Centrafuse and RR are a thing of the past for me! My CarPC has been brought back to life, Its quicker and way more responsive. Microsoft did a fantastic job on this one, two thumbs up from me!!!!!

                        This is great to hear for me. I had played with RR but never quite got it where I wanted. This has reinvigorated me for my carpc project.

                          A few questions:

                          1) Any touch screen friendly offline GPS navigation software work well in "Metro"?
                          2) What are you doing for media controls and can they be run alongside the GPS app without having to switch windows?
                          3) I'm assuming that we'll receive some sort of touch/metro friendly Sirius/XM and various other tuner apps sometime?

                            Here's a question for you.
                            If you had the space to fit the lilliput 12.1 inch monitor without multi-touch in the mp3car store versus the 10.4 inch lilliput with the multi-touch capability, would you pick the larger screen size over the multi-touch functions or verse versa?
                            I am redoing my monitor install in my chevy avalanche and have enough space to fit a 12.1 inch monitor in there however I have not found one with a multi -touch display.
                            I am debating whether to go down to the smaller size or just go with the larger size and hope that eventually someone will make a multi-touch panel that size so I can just replace panels instead of redoing the whole dash.
                            2002 Chevrolet Avalanche
                            Gigabyte Z97 mITX Intel Mobo, 8GB RAM, Intel Core i5-4590S 3.0GHz Proc, 320 GB Hard Drive, Dual 12' VGA HDMI DVI touchscreen monitors,....

                              Check out revo-sys.com, I saw them from another post on here, they have the best line up on monitor and capacitive touch I've seen.
