    I thought there was quite an interest in australia as well but I guess the time difference might make for a lack of replies....

    I took the liberty of phoning the 4 biggest car magazines in the UK, (max power, fast car, redline and revs), to ask their opinion and to see if people are offering an all in one product to buy off the shelf for people to put in their car, they hadn't really heard of it and were quite interested to know more, maybe they should be invited to the aquadrome?

    The closest they had was a feature of someone who had used a laptop to perform engine tuning, not really the mp3 multimedia scenario we deal with here.

    I know that these magazines sometimes cater for the lowest common denominator when it comes to car enthusiasts but i was thinking that their interest could spawn increased sales and hence lower prices, the whole economy of scale approach, couple this with increased demand for sophisticated software and we could really be onto something, from the replies above it seems that our car PC's are niche, maybe its time for mainstream?

    Opinions???

    Cheers

    MA, USA here... I've never seen a carputer in person, so I'd say it's still a niche.
