    Depends on what you want from your carpc, but like dejan said, it should be enough for most normal user.
    And also too expensive for most normal user

    Option like S1 but with a lot of lower power consumption... Check on google... VIA pico doesn't have C7 processor If I remember it have Eden... I was test it(have it) with 1GB DDR ram but is slower than NX15000G(you can fell diference)...

    s1 basically just puts the processor to sleep. s3 kills pretty much everything except ram. Power consumption mostly. S1 will kill the battery just about as fast as having the machine on and playing music. S3 could standby for hours before draining the battery with the car off.

    When you go into S1 board will take you around 10W, when you go into S3 board will take around 0.5-1W. In S1 CarPc will work around 1-3days(depend of battery) in S3 will work much more before will "empty" your battery, but if you will use hibernate function then this is not so important...
