    the fact that there are no moving parts and low power usage got me thinking. true for $120 you could get a bigger hard drive but for a car pc option?

    I've used one of those for a long time. Not the same manufacturer, but disk-on-module.
    Don't ask me to comment on boot times - my boot setup is nothing like yours, trust me on that one.
