Using an Old Tablet to control a new computer?
Okay, I don't need video or even that fancy display for sound. I do want navigation, mp3 and sat radio capabilities. So I was thinking of picking up a cheap 8 or 10 inch old Pentium 166 MMX Tablet PC with a touch screen and running VNC on it to connect to my Pentium 4 box in the trunk?
I might even use remote desktop. The network would be wireless 802.11g although I could easily use an ethernet connection.
Any thoughts on doing this? This would allow me to not only use the tablet at the dash, I could use it for parties, etc, outside the car. Not to mention it's a pretty cheap alternative to using a touch screen monitor (I can pick up a 8.4 inch LCD Tablet w/ indoor/outdoor screen for $170).
What do you all think?
