    I've seen a PC on a credit card size board for sale. Was only 300mhz though - still not bad!

    If someone can help me find a computer that's "credit card size", or close to it, it doesn't matter if it's reletively slow, I'd really appreciate it. As long as I can run Linux or Win98/2000, I don't mind if it's 300-500MHz. This will not be specifially used for car use. I think I might have a business venture for something like this.

    I , and this is what I came up with: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...22&btnG=Search

    Not too helpfull.

    Thanks,

    Rafster

    I closed down my PC last night so lost the link but I will find it again later. It didnt have any ports though and was an OEM type thing but if you want to see I will post it...I think it was an AMD 266 or 300mhz CPU.

    Come on man, u need to get a little more creative with your searches than credit card computer.

    Still googling.....

    Thanks for sharing these links SnyperBob. I'm also looking for a very small footprint of a CarPC so that I can have a GPS connected via serial to do real time tracking of my car. Still researching though..
