For years I've been interested in putting a computer in my car. I wanted to get a little bit of feedback on what I'm looking at doing. I have built several home PCs. My car is a 95 Civic VX Hatchback. I'm looking at buying a new car in the next few years, so I'm not going to put a lot of effort into a very custom setup. I think I'm going to get a Lilliput 7" Touchscreen display and simply use the dashboard mount. As for the setup of the computer (which would probably sit under one of the front seats:
Crucial 512MB DDR266
WD 200GB SE
Slim Slotload DVD Drive
Liliput 7" Touchscreen
OPUS 150w DC-DC PSU (This would have to remain outside the case)
Morex 2699 Case
Delorme Earthmate GPS
I'll probably also get a USB hub and mount it under the dash. I'm also thinking I may grab this keyboard: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...107-114&DEPA=0
Also, I may get a wireless card that will support use of an external antenna and slap an antenna on my car. This would be my primary way of transferring music and videos to and from my car. That and probably a 1GB compact flash card. This system would be sitting around $1000 for parts. Probably another $100 for various cables and what not. Plus I'd be ready to do a more custom setup when I get my new car.
Any comments on this setup? Its nothing really custom but its functional.
