    What do you suggest?

    This summer I plan on putting a carputer in and was hoping someone would give me some tips.

    I want to use it for music, GPS, and car diagnostics, and I'm gonna use the Streetdeck program to run it all and that's probably going to be the only thing on there. And I guess maybe later down the road I might used the other features on Streetdeck and probably a little TV since the monitor I want has a TV function in it. It's an in dash 7" motorized touch screen and I figured that would be my best bet.

    My question is, what do you suggest I use for memory and processor speed if I want the program to run smoothly?

    I'm probably going to build a compact PC from Dell maybe and put it in my trunk. I'm playing with the idea of using a laptop but I could go either way with that. Have any suggestions on that?

    I have some more questions but I can't think of them right now. If any one could help, it would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!

    I really liked the things it could do and I saw a demo of it and it seems like the one that I could get the most out of. Why? Did you use something else or you hear bad things about it?

    Also, is there anything that will play my iTunes music or do I need to find a way to convert that?
