Help me understand PC in a DIN chassis
Ive been seeing a few threads where people always looking for a car PC in a DIN size or double DIN. What I dont understand is WHY. If you have a PC in a DIN chassis, what's the use? the whole thing is probably not gonna fit after youve connected all the cables and connectors. Are you absolutely sure that there's NO other place to hide the mini ITX? I can understand if you're trying to mount a CD drive with char LCD in a DIN or double DIN. That's useful as you need to access the drive and see the status of your MP3 player. What do you need to access on the PC itself that requires you to mount the PC in the dash in the DIN cavity?CD drive, char LCD, floppy drive, ZIP drive, LS120 drive, Jazz drive,ORB drive,MO drive, removeable harddrive, memory card readers can all be mounted away from the motherboard. Even if you manage to squeeze the mobo, PSU, HDD and a CD drive in a single DIN chassis, do you have enough room behind the DIN chassis to plug in the power, monitor, USB, KB, mouse, COM ports, Parallel ports and still mount the whole thing into the dash? I really hope you don't drive an early model Chevy Astro Van cuz that would really suck trying to get a DIN PC into the dash on that.
