    I guess if you're using the Revo as a carPC, you are able to remove the stand. Is that correct? Too bad the shape is a parallelogram rather than a perfect square.

    @hailrazer,
    how long have you had the revo? I am interested in picking one up too ..but i was worried about the power supply and so forth.. I don't know how to solder and an extreme newb when it comes to the carpc. I've thought about doing the dc adapter for laptops but afraid of the shut down process..

    Any contribution is helpful!! didn't mean to thread jack.. i google'd this and exactly what I wanted to know..

    Hailrazer,
    I'm actually looking at the r3600 as an option for my car and would apprciate it if you could provide some more detail and/or pictures of what you did to use the carnetix supply, and how you've got the revo setup to power on/off.
    I'm looking at the r3600 version with Linux (I can upgrade to xp pro myself) and a 250gb drive for about $280 shipped.

    I'd appreciate the input.

    It uses a 19 VDC 3.4A supply., I have one and plan to install when I have 5 mins away from work.

    Plan to use a supply I purchased off E-bay; do a search on laptop car adaptors. When I searched for my Dell laptop I found this; 90W plenty of horsepower for the Revo. Much cheaper than any other option (appx $20 - 30) but you might need to change out the ends (I haven't had a chance to look).

    look at the USB configurable DC-DC regulator on mini-box or mp3car.com store.
    can do up to 24V.. with the auto intelligent switch mode.

    $59.99

    I have an Aspire Revo R1600 and am looking at a Carnetix or similar PSU.

    I'll have no problem wiring up leads to the power switch, -but what I'm curious to know is how did you actually connect the 19v supply to the computer? Does it come with a pre-terminated cable, or do you need to cut up the existing PSU cable?

    Zotac ZBOX HD-ID11 has a bit more beef than a Revo. D510 Atom with Ion VGA.
    Check my worklog:
    Corsa + Atom + Gentoo Linux + 9" capacitive touchscreen

    Lord of the boards: DFI CP100-NRM

    "Or you can try Ubuntu, but than don't tell everyone you are using linux,
    because it's just a secret unreleased prebeta of Windows 3829" :P
