    How will you:
    control it (touch screen, keyboard/mouse, keypad)
    Power it (inverter, DC-DC)
    Display (character LCD, Composite, VGA, none, multiple)

    What generation of PC tech will you use ( this affects power consumption )

    Have fun and read alot.
    D201GLY2, DC-DC power, 3.5 inch SATA

    Yes, you should search... and Yes, It has been covered before!
