    Car PC, these any good?

    Hi guys, first off all, this is a really cool site! lots of info to help us newbies out!



    I want to put a PC in my van, but not sure what is good and what not.

    here are my questions:

    1) epia 10000 (sp?) is this any good? what else will i need to get it running windows and fully function?

    2)Sharp 10" LCD, how bright is it? are there any other screens that are better than this one? examples would be appreciated.

    well I guess those are the questions that get me started. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    for the M10000 questions you can get some good answers at mini-itx.com

    But you will need a hard drive and some memory and a power supply...see the power supply threads in the power supply topic.

    I have an epia M10000, and am quite happy with it. as for the screen, I also have a sharp 10.4" LCD and it is plenty bright, it is the lq10d421 which is 300nits I believe. Just keep in mind that if it is only a bare screen you also need an LCD Controller to make it work with VGA Input.

    Also, before anyone else can say it,, do lots of 'ing through the forums, and you will find all kinds of useful information
