  • CES 2009 - Giantec Double Din Car Computer

    A different version of Giantec’s hardware was also in the Intel booth. We take a closer look at this version and the single din version as well. The single din is in a previously posted video.

          I like the look of this. Some of the other units have had too many buttons/knobs etc. I liked the G4 but couldn't bring my self to spend over 2g on the thing. I hope this is much less.

              I would guess it would be around the same price maybe $500 less at most.

              Looks like a cool unit none the less.

                Pricing has not been announced on this product yet, but the similar product in Intel's booth was priced at $2,500.

                There won't be 500$ pricing on products like this for at least a couple years.

                  That's what I figured. It's in the same range as the G4, Azentek Atlas, and a few other that are coming out.

                  I'm too cheap so I'll probably stick with separate components since I'm handy and can put it together. For someone who doesn't want to spend the time building it, this type of system is ideal.

                    ...

                    It's a shame that the price point of these pc's are so high. With a more acceptable price you might start seeing these as a common setup in cars instead of regular decks. Wait until bestbuy starts installing these. Geek Squad for your car....

                        It needs to be about $1k or just below. There are a few from Revo-Sys that are really nice, but they all start around $1500 and still need OS and Front End.

                            I'm sure that one on Ebay will go for higher than that. Maybe $800-1000 since it's ebay.
