    I don't understand... Are you producing them and trying to guage what to charge? Or are you asking for store prices, cuz you know you can just have a look in froogle or pricewatch or even eBay.

    A PCI card that allows a desktop to read PCMCIA shouldn't be all that expensive.
    The first Google hit has a single-port unit for US$32.79.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I think you need to talk to the vendor to get that question answered.
    Could you, by any chance, be purchasing from the mp3car.com store?

    this is a wired thread...

    it seems that you dont know much about CarPC's but you are opening a shop? thats a scary thought.

    Yet you will sell your system on the net? Dream on hooker

    I have no idea what you are asking... I got my PCMCIA to PCI card for $30 shipped. I would pay $30 shipped. That answer your question? I hope your "system" includes a lot more than just a PCMCIA PCI Card
