I am sure your 10 year old car doesn't have a nicer system, then what is sitting in my garage, but no need to get into a ****ing contest here.
The car I will be putting an xbox into I don't drive much... being that between 2 people we own 4 cars you are right, I do not drive the car in question that much. My commute car is still much nicer than an Aspire if that is the question.
If you had read the posts than you would see where I outlined the original poster may be better off running the XBOX instead of the PC, depending on his uses for the system. I think out of all your "respected" members I am the only one that asked once (note I asked multiple times) what the intended use of the system was.
Now to say that a Windows system is "CHEAPER" you said it.... this is completely untrue, windows may be EASIER but never cheaper. How can a free OS with open source free programming cost more than windows. You can spend more on a windows distro than it would cost you to buy an xbox.Originally Posted by SnyperBob
I never said a carputer wouldn't be easier or more efficient.... in every post I spoke to the concept of use and money. BTW how is it so hard to fit the components of a CarPC in a small car... in your last post weren't you talking about Mini Mobo's and cases, ohhh yeah it must be a challenge to install one of those tiny bastards into a car (I can think of at least 20 places I could hide one in an aspire, congrats). BTW you were the one that brought up the concept of the XBOX being 10 years old, 3 of my cars are 00 or newer and 1 is an 82. Nothing against old or new I work on em all.
As far as my "crew", my style has nothing to do with my "crew", car shows are car shows.... the shows and GTGs I go to are mostly european based (yeah not a lot of Aspires and Festivas there... sorry). Dude I am sure you have a nice Carputer in your car..... just face it, it's 2 different worlds, I am not trying to sit here and make fun of you for putting a PC in to a damn Aspire (**** the Carputer probably has more value than the car). Just understand that not everyone lives in your world where they need a fully functional Carputer in their car. I would much rather see someone install and XBOX in their car and realize they are out 100 (they can resell) and upgrade then spend 2Gs that a lot of people spend on GPS headunits and realize they have less options then they would with a much cheaper Carputer.
This has nothing to do with it being an XBOX, it has to do with your smart *** comments.... everyone else to this point has been cool understanding that maybe the poster doesn't want what you want out of your car. Like I said not everyone wants GPS or a touchscreen (yeah they are both nice to have, I personally would rather build multiple cars than have 1 cheap car with a crazy Carputer in it). I am not pushing my views on you.... but there is no need to trash a thread of a person that had a REAL question. You never even actually addressed the question posted.
I don't give a **** what you or anyone else wants to run......... in a endless cashflow world I would have the top of the line carputer in every car and $2000+ rims on every car. Not everyone wants to live like you and not everyone wants to live like me, no need to trash the decision here. You don't see me sitting in the Newbie forums telling everyone to go mod XBOX and make them into Carputers. You seriously act like I started this thread (note: I wasn't the original poster) to get some kinda XBOX Carputer movement going or some ****. I honestly like the challenge of doing something different, and to this point it looks like I can get everything out of my xbox I need in my car (I will be missing GPS, not a big worry for me).
As long as I can find the driver I need.... I should be able to run everything else, including hi-speed wireless. Works for me, may not be "cool" to you, but I still like throwing in Forza to play around with my friends while I am sitting at a car show or GTG.
