New to CarPC's...I think I'm ready to start
I'm new to the whole CarPC's, but I've always had the dream of putting one in my car. I've got experience working with wiring audio systems and performance electronics, but a PC steps into new territory. I'm planning on purchasing all my required components in the next few weeks or so, but I figure I should go over all the stuff with more experienced members.

That's the basics of what I will be buying (hopefully). I plan on adding things like WiFi, GPS, front/rear/side cameras, etc. later on.
I also had a few tech questions, related to the PSU and the Lilliput:
-In your opinion, does the price premium over the other Lilliputs with just the DVI or even just with the VGA make it worth it? What are the differences between them, beside the connectors?
-Do all the PSU's like the Opus and the M1/2/3/4 have an ATX connector, and a CPU 4 pin connector? Otherwise, how does the CPU get power?
-How does the Lilliput send the touch signals to the computer? I plan on mounting my computer in the trunk, so I will need to extend the HDMI/DVI cable.
-Can the PSU be programmed to keep power going to the RAM, so that I can just hibernate my computer? I feel that will be most useful, because I drive my car every single day.
