    What do you think of this system?

    The computer I may buy for my car.
    I may purchase this system (w/ a bigger hard drive) and an 8" Lilliput touch screen. I am sure I would end up adding more components later, but for now I am just looking for the simple route.
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Pretty expensive in my opinion for what it contains. But it is also very small. I would definitely upgrade the HD like you mentioned. If you wanted to compromise on the size you could build your own for a lot cheaper.
    AMD XP 2600+/512MB RAM/120GB hard drive
    Opus 150W/DVD/GPS/7" Lilliput TS/802.11g/Bluetooth
    Installed.

    Thanks for your quick reply. I understand the fact that this may be an overpriced or underpowered system, but I am pretty much dead set on getting a ready made system. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good ready made system @ $350-$400? I just don't want to be waiting for parts that are on backorder forever. I may consider building a system if I can find any systems that are in that price area that people have built.
