    mini-itx carputer any case ideas???

    you guys, i want to build a carputer that no one will steal when i go out of town, the first thing i thought was an alarm. but nothing on my truck is electric. so, i decided to build a mini-itx like these www.mini-itx.com for example so, when passers by see the oven or cardboard cube, they won't give it a second thaught and damn sure wouldn't know that it was a computer in my old beater.

    any whimsical ideas are appreciated to guys this could be fun. thanks

    Oops sorry, you have a truck. Put it under a seat, in the glovebox, anywhere out of sight.

    I think you misunderstood him, he has a truck!

    What kind of truck do you have?

    If you have the room, I would put the comp in your middle console or your glove compartment.

    It would be out of sight that way!

    Of course, a thief just might think there's something worth stealing in the cardboard box.
