    DAMN, awesome price on "carputer" sys

    Damn, If I had some more money in my account, I would buy this! Perfect size for carputer, and comes with a 15" LCD Monitor to boot.

    I am not at all affeliated with this vendor. Just like to point out great opportunities for people.

    Peace,

    Wow, the only two reasons that I am not getting this right now is that I get paid next month (damn commission), and that I'm not sure that the USB 1.1's can handle so many things (GPS, KB, Touchscreen, Phone cable, etc), The processor is plenty powerfull, but I guess if I need a little bit more speed, i can always upgrade it to a 1.2GHz Cel or even PIII. I know that someimes brand name computers have problems with upgrading the CPU, but I've done it a couple of times before. Is there a huge difference in power usage of a Celeron 1GHz S370 and a PIII 1GHz S370?

    Peace,

    Doesn't have any expansion slots so you can't even add a USB2 card. Even still, Looks like a good deal. I'd like to know more about the monitor though.

    shal:
    Here's more info on that computer

    Dell optiplex GX150

    It should be able to handle just about anything, except the video ram seems a little bit low, 4MB.

    Graphics architecture Intel 3D with direct accelerated graphics port (AGP)
    Graphics accelerator Embedded Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT) with optional 4-MB Graphics Performance Accelerator (GPA), or a 4X AGP card can be supported (low profile cards for small form-factor and small desktop systems; full-height cards [up to 22.9 cm or 9 inches] for the small mini-tower system)
    Display cache optional 4-MB, 133-MHz SDRAM
    Graphics memory Dynamically allocated from system memory
    Video resolutions
    (display supports some or all of these resolutions) 640 x 480 pixels; 85 hertz (Hz) max refresh rate with 16.7 million colors
    800 x 600 pixels; 85 Hz max refresh rate with 16.7 million colors
    1024 x 768 pixels; 85 Hz max refresh rate with 16.7 million colors
    1152 x 864 pixels; 85 Hz max refresh rate with 16.7 million colors
    1280 x 1024 pixels; 85 Hz max refresh rate with 16.7 million colors
    1600 x 1200 pixels; 75 Hz max refresh rate with 256 colors



    CJ: I beleive that it was already sold, I actually posted on that thread to find out the model number of the computer. I beleive that the seller still has not sent it because the buy is asking for shipping info. Here is the link to the thread:
    Full Carputer 4 Sale (Lilliput, External Sound, HP Comp, AC/DC Converter)

    Good Luck,

    Rafster

    P.S. I'm not really sure if it's a 3.5" drive. My guess would be that it is, thinking that it would be sor of stupid for them to put an even slower laptop drive in there. Remember, in those days, they thought 5400RPM was screeming fast

    hmm.. maybe i'll get it just for the monitor. That's the cheapest price for a LCD monitor i've ever seen. I'll sell the PC back and have the LCD monitor for only $120.

    What do you guys think?

    If you do sell it, I call dibs if it's ~$100. Hopefully less.
