n00b build help!
Ok I've been trying to read as much as possible and understand what will work and what I can build for a simple PC setup in my 06 TL.
Nettop Acer Aspire Revo AR1600: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1218120545008 199.99
CarNetix CNX-CA-XSC4 (ACPI? direct connect to CNX-P1900): http://store.mp3car.com/product_p/cbl-053.htm 24.99
CarNetix CNX-P1900 Power Supply: http://store.mp3car.com/Carnetix_CNX..._p/pwr-010.htm 99.95
Will that work?... (I haven't decided on a monitor yet..but I've been looking at a llilput backlit led 7")
25 views..and no insight?
if you want a "simple" setup, then I suggest using desktop hardware instead of a laptop.
And bumping your thread with a snarky 'tude after a mere 11 hours and only 25 views is pointless.
25 views in this forum is nothing.
i usually let some threads go a day-- in your case, i don't use a laptop setup, and was giving a chance to the latop guys to better answer your questions.
i looks like that setup should be ok, but like i said, i don't like laptop setups-- the hardware is too propreitary for my tastes. for monitors, try looking at nonmotorized monitors-- all of the motorized ones, by any brand, seem to have issues alot.
in my experience, don't ever post on a forum if you need a answer right away, most forums i am on get better responses if threads are left for a couple days-- so all the 'experts'(myself included) can chime in. bumping your own thread, the same day, if not responding to others posts, usually turns away some of the better informed people...
Ok thanks for the advice..again I am a noob here..most of the other forums im on i get pretty good response considering the community
..also this is a nettop..so it is a desktop setup...not a laptop.
I think that thing looks pretty cool, should make a great carpc... I wouldn't get the power supply until I got the pc itself so you'll know what you need to run it... looks like it might just take one input voltage, could be anywhere from 16v-19v, depending & depending on how many amps it needs you may be able to run it on a car laptop power adaptor, don't see any helpful specs in your link as far as powering it...
hmm.. what exactly do you mean laptop power adapter? Are you referring to the AC-DC Laptop power and seeing if the amp/volts will hold up?
If so, are you saying I can wire a DC Plug to the trunk and the adapter will hold up?
Sorry for all the questions..I just want whatever is the best solution/easiest.
no, I'm talking about a laptop dc/dc power adapter. say this thing runs on 16v, you could use a dc/dc supply for a laptop that runs on 16v to power it in the car...
this thing probably takes in one voltage only from the wall adapter & then internally drops it down to the 12v, 5v & 3.3v it runs on,just like a laptop does, so basically it has a dc/dc power supply already built in, but it takes a voltage larger than 12v as an input, like maybe 16v, or 18v, or 19v... these are just assumptions which is why you'd have to get it in your hands to be sure but I'm pretty sure judging by the form factor that this would be the case...
so if I use the laptop dc/dc adapter.. would i have to manual power on the pc?
Ok so i decided to make the leap. .. I purchased a 7" lillupt screen..and now planning on using that dc laptop adapter on the acer nettop (desktop version). However my question would be will i have to power off the unit manually every time? And when i take the key out is that a hard shut down? Assuming that wares down the unit...
