I am using an hp slimline in my car currently the draw backs are NO upgradability for pci slot the case is to small to put even the smallest sound card in?? The model I'm using is the centrino version I have a DSATX DC to DC from my old computer but this one has a very strange plug on the mobo so using an inverter till I figure something out
I would think the slimline is a all-in-one type solution... meaning... yuo buy it and use it. if you are the type that needs to upgrade the video card, sound card, etc all just for use in the car, then I think a regular PC should suffice but the drawback would be size...
THe slimline is an awesome plug and play pc i think. You can easily just wire a button to your dash to turn it on/off... "sucks" compared to the "automated starting" feature the dsatx has but it's still a solution...
Duct tape and a Bandana for the win, b!shes!!!
Cost so far: Less than a grand ;]
Economy/Commuter cars + Computers = many entertained miles
funny i just installed one of these in a scion tc.. just gutted out the stock radio and the motherboard fit perfect.. also changed out the 200GB Hard drive for a 320 Sata notebook laptop.. also switched the dvd dl for a slim loader out of a dell optex (dell ver. of the slimline) it worked perfect.. !!
