    I WON!!!!

    I now have a 700mhz 128MB Lapto with a cracked screen.

    Ok here is the update
    700mhz 128Mb ram 20GB
    A WinTv Usb Fm Tunner (I still havent figured out how to make it work)

    oh and 650-113= $537

    What I'm looking at right now is a 10.4 touch screen and a GPS receiver.
    P.S. Any recomendations on GPS software???

    My first version is already complete, and has been It was just a matter of putting the screen in, and moving my HU.

    Now though, I am going with a permanantly mounted setup, so you beat me on that.

    Now, vacation

    If I were you I would max the ram out. What is the model number of the Compaq? I will tell you what you need to know.

    You got a pretty damn nice deal.

    Peace,
