Right im going to buy a shell and build my own carpc system it needs to be small as its going in a mini.
So what am i buying
I want to have it so it plays mp3's,Can copy cd's and can use a couple of applications.
Im going to have a ps2 so it can do the dvd part.
The budget is quite tight around 100 pound probably buy the partd from ebay.
Thanks in advance MiniManShane
100 pounds = US$175.25 (as of 7/21/2005).Originally Posted by Minimanshane
Unless you've got spare parts lying around withwhich to build your vehicle computer, good luck. This is not a budget hobby in any shape or form.
Ok so what is the basic build i could go for?
see how much you can get a screen for and work it out from there, its probably the most expensive single item.
The screen isnt the part im wanting to find out about really ill spend 130 pound on it but need to find out what to buy for the pc.
I guess this would be considered a "common" starting point:
