    Ive got a dual core atom and running 1280 x 768 screen res its real laggy when switching screens in centrafuse...if i lower the screen res down its real sweet.but if i do that windows looks terible as i still use oziexplorer and a few other programs from within windows.i now regret buying a atom,as i will probably now buy another new setup.

    would it be hard to set up a nuc to power on and off with car?

    something like a Intel® NUC Kit D54250WYK powered by the CarNetix CNX-P2140 185W Dual Output Intelligent DC-DC Regulator?

    The NUC is prolly 19v or 12v regulated power which you could get from either the carnetix 2140 or carnetix P1900 depending on which it is 12 or 19v. Both will give you your auto start and shut down. SNO

    I was seriously considering the NUC. It is 19V, so you will need to get an intellegent DC to DC converter for the car, and use the power brick at home. Great choice if you want to share as carpc, and home theater pc. Small, low power, quick and easy to connect. You could make it dual boot, with a boot menu for homepc mode or carpc mode and have it startup the front end software automatically. I think you have found the perfect pc for your application... due to be released this fall.
