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

    i have got an RM tablet in my car. My friend is the ICT manager at my old school and has just bought one of these to see what they are like.

    they are OK but i must admit a bit slow - he is running some software from the memory card slot which is dreadfully slow.

    Having said that so small and durable and no problems with power!! It does come with Linux on it though which might need to be changed to make the most of Car PC software.

    ummm...what?

    the pc has a VGA input? and not an output? does your screen have a VGA input? or are you thinking RCA?

    That is linked from the FAQs in the link I provided you earlier.
    There's a section there all about screens with several informative write-ups.

    Composite video is not touchscreen friendly. For front ends and other media players it may not be bad, but in general it's just not good to use with a small form screen. Too low of a resolution to be practical really.
