    assuming its a single-core processor? I sure do wish they'd do something about the crappy GMA graphics platform.

        I'd be very interested to see the price point on that, looks very promising.

          Yes what?




          I'm loving that trhese tings are getting smaller and the HDMI for video also helps, but the issue will soon become the size of the plugs for the peripherals which are almost as big as the unit itself.

          If you are making something that small you should really be thinking of mini usb as opposed to full usb sockets.

            Yeah, very small. It looks like an USB hub.

                May be an interesting answer for people looking for a single din solution. It would be nice to see a dual core one though... They could probably just use the case as a heat sink.

                  I agree but can be possibly used for some integrations.

                      Smaller and smaller is going to be the norm. Heck, how long will it be until your cell phone is powerful enough to be your primary computing device for applications like what a carpc is doing? A year or two until it can drive a full size monitor/touchscreen?

                        A year or two? What kind of a rock have you been living under? That technology is already here

                          ^ just not really fully-implemented because the corporations see no reason to go after such a small market share..

                            Pretty much what soundman98 said. I should have clarified: a year or two until I see the technology really reaching widespread use (outside of current generation tablets). Some of the new phones coming out are impressive, but again, the market needs to grow/mature to really see the full exploitation of the tech. (I will admit I am 'only' using a Galaxy 1 device, so not as powerful as the newest dual core beasts coming to market, but not impressed enough to call the phone more than a nifty feature rich toy. It won't replace any of my primary computing devices for anything but the most basic tasks)

                              i really don't see the mobile device catching on to any serious degree with what this forum does. i think they are getting close, but the interfaces are still a very long way off from being anywhere near what we use, or what the oem's offer for indash infotainment.

                              after all, this is a techie forum, so it is more difficult to make us happy, and i believe that techies are a minority in the overall population..
