as I havn't build my own CarPuter yet, I did already decide which computer.
I thought about using a laptop. The pro would be that you can use your own laptop that you use everywhere.
You go to work and/or school, update, put some new music on it. A movie or 2 and then when you go to the car, just put the laptop in the docking station and you are ready to go.
But since I don't have a laptop, it is a lot cheaper for me to just a computer. I bought a little desktop DELL computer. 1000Mhz/256Mb for 110 Euro's..
I think thats doubable, and perfect for the job
