    I'd go for the M10k. A little extra spent now is better than a lot later to replace the 9000. I also give a big thumbs up to iGuidance 2.0. Awesome navigation software!

    The onboard sound works well if your going through a HU for sound, but if your going to go from the sound of the carpc directly to amps then I would opt for a better sound card. Either the Audigy or even a good USB one would be fine.

    I would go for a 2.5" hard disk instead of a 3.5" one. It will use much less power and is more resistant to shock from bumps in the road. If you go with a 2.5" drive then a 90w Opus would be fine, but I'd step up to the 150w if you stay with the 3.5" drive.

    How annoying! iGuidance looks like quite a nice piece of software except for no GB/Europe maps

    Have any of you guys using iGuidance got screenshots of it running on Win XP?

    Sorry for the post hijack!

    I'd go with the M10000 and the 512mb RAM if I were you

    Cheers,

    Andy

    oh hell.. Capt'n, I completely missed your location..

    perhaps a visit to: http://www.gpspassion.com and some study of the reviews will help you out.

    Cheers
