    Wondering about using this PC as a CarPC

    I wonder how this would do as a CarPC, aside from the fact that you couldn't put a DC-DC power supply, but all the specs look good along with the price and the size.

    Why couldn't you use DC-DC power? The Carnetix 2140 puts out 19vdc and more than enough wattage.

    Wondering why this is in the review section.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I replied in your other thread about the same unit.
