    phc:

    we are in the same boat. I don't have a TS LCD yet. I have a 6.5" LCD, and 5" LCD sitting in my car. I can do VPN and VNC updates over LAN and WiFi at the moment. But I am using espressoPC (www.saintsong.com.tw). I don't really have an option of DVD. But I don't really need it. I have a ton of DVDs at home and I rip them to Divx for my car. I need the USB TS. It's good that DigitalWW has the TS with USB and he should be within a couple of miles away from my house too.

    Why a mouse? Isn't touchscreen enough?

    I just ordered my M1000 and 512MB ram too.

    I've got a VERY similar setup. The M10000 with 512MB RAM, 10.4" LCD (with touchscreen to be added soon). My question is why bother with the KQ5 EQ. In my opinion it's overkill. At the very least, maybe a line driver would do you some good, but the computer has the ability to set crossover points, doesn't it? In my setup, I am in the process of getting the Sherwood X-DTS80 to get a clean signal digital from the PC, but also stereo inputs from the radio. The Sherwood unit, I believe, can control volume. You can switch between the computer and any other device (2 digital inputs, and 1 stereo input). From there, I can drive my KX700.5 from either the PC or radio.

    Initially I planned to use an AUX-in on my HU, But decided for a small investment, I could get true 5.1 (although it will be 4.1). Maybe later, I will add a line driver to take the extra strain off the amp. Just my thoughts......

    defiantely get a dvd drive, you'll thank me later. Slim-slot would also be good. And Im planning to get a touchpad also. Touch screen is nice but its not enough.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    SinnerG:

    I'm not looking at the KQ5 as an EQ, but as a master volume and a volume for the sub since it has the bass control built in. Also, since my PC will actually be in the dash, I didn't want to run the low voltage signal to the trunk. Seems it would be better to pre-amp it so I won't amp the noise I pick up on the way to the trunk.

    What is the quality of the analog audio out on the M10000N? Do I really need to get a different sound card?

    A touchpad will help when clicking on small things. It takes big buttons on a 7" touchscreen.

    I opted not for a ball type mouse since the vibration in the car would constantly move the ball around.
