    looking for double din carpc with touchscreen built in

    where can i find this? i know ive seen them before. an entire carpc setup in one double din casing with a motorized display. ive got a 98 blazer lt. not too many places to put this while retaining a stock look. the center console is an idea, but i need that for holding random things.

    are there any casings like this that dont have any computer components in it? that i can put whatever i want in or that will fit?

    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Also the T3 or whatever it is with the flip out screen.

    And as for a case to build custom... not really. There is the lilliput indash pc (the store sells a case for that) but you need to use a M10k and you need to use low profile RAM, and it is longer than most dashes. There is a thread going on here about someone making and selling these double din enclosures for a full PC, but I think it was a Ford Mustang thing only at one point. It might have evolved more since I last read through.

    The G4 is the processor. There is no technical reason that I know of that you couldn't put it in a different box.

    Edit: for example, the G4 mac mini : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_mini

    Is that form factor so different now?

    Well IBM's G4 processor isnt in anything but macs. Macs have a whole look.

    I actually forgot about the G4 minis. I did remember that the G4's burned hotter than the surface of the sun though. One of the main reasons apple dumped IBM because they couldnt make it faster without water cooling or melting.
