    This might be fun....

    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/int...ess,26597.html

    Key takeaways:
    • Has 4GB of Flash memory already installed.
    • VGA Output
    • 3.5 Headphone output
    • USB 2.0/3.0 ports outside
    • Accepts 12 -19V power



    Fun fact - Windows 8 Embedded Industry Pro minimum install is 1-2 GB. Full install is less than 4GB.

    Throw 2GB of RAM and a nice little SSD, add a mini-PCI-E wifi card (antenna ports are already there), and you could have one very nice little box I think.

    Considering the celeron NUC is only $150, maybe under $100?

    "a single-core Atom E3815 processor clocked at 1.46 GHz"
    i think the chip has not enough speed for a carpc.

    The new Bay Trail processors are pretty good. MUCH better than the older ATOM chips. I've got a Miix 2 tablet with the 1.33 Bay Trail quad-core and it is very nice. Keeping in mind that very few things you do on a car require (or are programmed for) multiple cores, it might work better than you'd expect. TDP on this chip is 5W, so this really is a low-power/low heat setup. You could probably tuck this behind/under the dash and have no problems at all. But I agree that price will be a deciding factor.
