    Mounting idea for mimiITX setup

    Here is an idea for mounting your miniITX setup that actually makes sense in your car.....
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    That is about the dumbest idea for a case mod that I've seen. I mean what's the point of using a mini-ITX mobo if the final product is going to weigh fifty freakin' pounds.

    only problem now is that you can't use your spare incase you got a flat.

    because mini-itx has the right dimensions to fit inside the wheel!

    I kinda like the toaster idea....then your dvd's could pop out the top. That'd be pretty sweet. Of course you wouldn't need something that looks like a toaster in your ride but but it'd make a pretty sweet desktop.
