    Newbie and these specs in mind

    Hi all. Long time reader first time poster.
    I have searched around the posts and have come up with these basics.

    Power supply:M2-ATX
    M/B: Foxconn 45CS Mini-ITX board with Intel Atom 230 single core
    1gb RAM/ approx 80gb H/Drive
    Lilliput GL-701 head unit (is this advisable? Any alternatives?).

    I guess the only bit I'm not sure on is will the M2 have enough juice to power the board / cpu / hard drive and possibly the screen as well?

    Thanks for any assistance all.

    Jonathan

    Hia.

    I do not think that the M2 will have any problems powering what you have stated here... though, if you have many power hog of USB devices... you might run into a problem.

    Regarding hardware choise... Not what I would have chosen, but everything is up to ones budget and build-plan.

    The only opinion I have on the list you have given... I would recomend a SSD HD instead of a magnetic one.

    Thanks Crinos.
    Re the hardware, do you mean the Lilliput part or the M/Board?

    Cheers

    Actually... both...
    Look at the Lilliput here... http://store.mp3car.com/Lilliput_GL7..._p/mon-020.htm
    2 out of 3 say "do not buy".

    Regarding the MB.
    I have never ever had any experiance with Foxconn, and that is why I would have gone for something that is more known.
