    Is my old laptop good enough to use as a car-pc

    thought i should ask this question before i have a propper look at the software side of things, so i know whether i need to create my own new pc. i have an old lap top lying around (4-5 year old) and i am thinking of using that for my first car pc.

    i am planning to have the following features on my carputer:
    -gps
    -phone
    -internet
    -music
    -movies
    -tuning capabilities (ie. crossovers, time allignment, equaliser etc.)

    the specs can be found here the model is the L10 (at least i think thats all right)

    would a laptop as old as mine be able to support these features?

    would i be able to expand easily (ie. add new features) and upgrade things especially the sound card as i already have a full stereo installed or increase the hard drive.

    thanks a lot guys, much apreciated.

    Probably, although if it has 256mb of memory that might be a little shy. You can test it out by downloading a front end such as Road Runner and trying it.
