Interesting stuff! I was not aware of that link:-)
I'm not a mac user myself (well not yet anyway, getting a mac mini for my studio in a few months) but I found this thread and wasn't sure if it might be useful for someone looking to get the mini in their carputer. Hope it helps somebody!
Mac: - Researching and Awaiting Funds
Changed to planning for a Mac Mini Trukputer...w3rd.
Total newbie to this carputer thing, but fell over this site when a long time idea got possible thanks to the release of the MacMini.
Just wanted to point u to a project which would be so cool to implement in a mac based carputer. take a look at this at tell me if that would be nice to have in the car http://centerstageproject.com/
So far my own caputer is very much on the drawing board, but will end like this
Mercedes ML 320 with:
MacMini under the seat
Xenarc 700YV in the 2 din center console
USB trackpad in the armrest (that's going to be a challenge)
and so far only with Mac OS X and the normal apps for mp3 and movie, BluePhoneElite for the mobile phone and route 66 with a bluetooth gps mouse
And i will off course keep a sharp eye on iDash and maybe join in when i finished some work and have the time.
nothing fancy.. but a rock solid carputer solution for under 1300 euro
