    I am very tempted but the conenctor looks like it does the VGA and touchscreen in one connector. hmmmm

    and drivers would be an issue

    I think that the metal case alone would be worth the money.

    the PC looks like an industrial computer. The connector on there is a PC/104 that has MANY MANY boards that can connect to it.

    I tried this route and setup a nice lil Win98 box with a PC/104 PCMCIA connector going to a PCMCIA sound card. Was a pain to setup but I did get it to work.

    Just a thought

    As a former police officer, I had one similar to that in my car. I don't remember too much about the connectors and hardware, but it ran Windows 2000 pretty well. The screen resolution, however, was pretty crappy.
