It's already getting kind of expensive. If anyone has anything that they want to donate to my project send me an email to [email protected]
I don't know what "kick-***" means. If you mean really fast and really powerful, then no, that is not a good computer to get. The Epias are slow. Get something better.
If you mean a great setup that runs mp3's, DVD's, wireless, GPS, etc. then yes, that setup will work. However, the mp3car.com store has a more cost-effective unit, particularly if you're willing to put the components together yourself.
You can also buy the same screen from them. If you're wondering, no, I'm not affiliated with mp3Car.com but I do use their forum a lot and always buy from them if they have the product and it is a reasonably competitive price.
Note that your system did not include DVD or CD drive. I think, but am not sure, that the auto start and shutdown controller is not included in either case but there's not enough information for me to tell. Because it isn't mentioned, I assume it's not included.
By the way, if you have anything you want to donate to ME, please PM me. You're right, this hobby is expensive! :lol:
mp3car store doesnt include the xenarc though
edit: you mentioned that
You can do it for MUCH less. Especially if you have an old computer sitting around.
A good system with the cool morex cases (especially since you only need a CarNetix for them) can be bought and assembled (by yourself) for less than $400. Not including a TS.
