    Exclamation Got my new TINY PC from Tigerdirect

    Yeah, it was pricey, but not bad for a Celeron 1.3/128 megs of ram DVD-ROM drive, Windows XP Home, IR port, USB, Modem/LAN, built in speaker. But it is SMALLER than a CD-ROM drive for desktop computer!

    I have my 7 inch touchscreen lcd, I just got the parcel today. I only plugged it in and did the Windows Update. I will start installing all the GPS software tonight/movie players/dumping mp3's...going crazy.

    I also have to buy a laptop lock for it so if someone breaks in the car at least they won't get the PC without MUCH effort.

    I'll be sure to post a review for it, it is SO SMALL...crazy!

    Perhaps, but I test out the onboard sound first...if it is fine I'll just stick with that.

    its not gonna be fine, from what I hear.

    we thought those coffee-related PC's (cappucino, espresso, etc) were god's gift to mp3car.com. then someone got one and they basically sold it 2 months later because it was so crappy

    Well, so far I put Microsoft Mappoint on it and the speed is decent for searching for addresses.

    I'll post a full review once I get it up and running with the AGPS plugin and in the car.

    Congradulations for sucessfully ordering something from Tigerdirect! I'm amazed that you not only receved the item, but that it works too.

    I hope your system works out

    I have had ZERO problems with Tigerdirect, I have ordered about 6 things in the last year from them and all orders arrived within 4 business days (when it was in stock).

    Yes it has a normal VGA out, it's great so far. The built in speaker is really quiet tough so I'll have to hook it up to the car stereo, it's fine for a desk but in a noisy car...I doubt you will even hear it.

    Now I've got the problem of the power button...if I am putting this under the seat of the car, how the devil do I turn it on? Anyone?
