After reading the FAQ, have some questions - what would you recommend?
The FAQs here are great, but are pretty much for if you already know what you want/need.
I will get either a laptop or one of those cappuccino (or here) pc's... the problem is i don't have experience using them so maybe if i tell you what i will mainly be using it for, can you recommend which to go with? then i can run from there and go through the FAQs about install....
I mainly want it to store a large Mp3 collection on, and store some movies and video clips (standard avi, wmv, mpeg, etc).... and to play DVDs.
I'd appreciate faster bootup (which makes laptops attractive), but size and where to put it are both important to me as well.
how much ram do you think i'd need for doing this comfortably? what processor speed? what front end do you guys recommend i use for this? i know some people just use winamp, but given i may want to watch movies and dvd's, is there another one to use? would i be better off running linux? would i be better off with a laptop or cappuccino pc deal?
also the dash in my civic has a double-din opening.... i was going to get the 8" touchscreen... i notcied the lilliput is half the price of the xenarc.. is the xenarc really THAT good or are you just paying more for the name? given i want to do some DVD watching, which screen would you recommend?
thanks so much for your time, sorry for all the questions - these were all the questions i had after reading through the FAQs that were not answered.
Thanks so much!
