    Mini-CheckerCube ... Sharp

    http://www.caseoutlet.com/case/mini-...minicheck.html

    I think this thing could almost mount in a DIN slot in a car, if you had a double DIN deck you could add this and a single din touch screen and be set.

    Caseoutlet predicts stocking them by the end of the month (no price available yet)

    It looks quite nice, but Im sure the price tag will be made of gold. I assume by it saying a slim hard drive it means a laptop drive? I know Ive seen normal size drives that are actually thin (I have a 20GB in my car now.) So it might actually mean a slim normal size drive.

    Yes, it houses a 2.5" 9mm hard disk.

    Yeah, but if your going to go with something that small and dash mount it I would assume your prepared to drop a little extra cash on a 2.5. Plus the laptop drive also has the added benefit of less power draw and shock resistance.

    One thing that might be cool ... run an external harddrive that you keep in the glove box, or even one of those swapable harddrives so you can just plug it in your home pc, then size won't matter.
