    better have a hell of a Dc-Dc psu.....i have something on the smaller side for sale (see sig), 12".....i think that unless you are going to be "working" on your carpc there is a curve of utility vs. practicality and 12" is right about as perfect as it gets...above that becomes sort of ridiculous...IMHO

    this aint so much for a pc as it is for dvd/videogames really wont have room for a pc in my truck so i was just wondering what all i could get in the ways of resolution figured it was possible to get more out of a desktop pc.

    you will need to remove the windshield too, that just gets in the way of the monitor

    Here is a friend's GM with just a NEC monitor, touch pad sits on console, laptop and GPS under rear seat. Takes it out to use at home. They park next to a starbucks and work from the road quite a bit as they travel the USA.






    Just screwed some brackets to the dash, and velcros the LCD to the brackets.
    I am a newbie trying to outfit a couple cars with new custom consoles and mini ITX. Click here for my 2003 Chevy Avalanche project.

    Circuit City has a 14 Proview 456 TFT LCD for 180 bucks. Just put one in the car. Looks great.

    Runs very good with the epia.
