New to CarPCs? Don't know where to start?
read it, live it, learn it, love it.
That's what I think
I found this system on E-bay
Would this be a good starting point. what would I need to upgrade. I was thinking I could upgrade the ram and processor(is it possible to upgrade the processor). I am interested in something that will play mp3's, wi-fi,GPS, maybe dvd's(not a priority), obd-II eventually(again no rush on this). WOuld I need to upgradeit to run mp3, wi-fi, gps?
What would be left to buy if i were to purchase this system? would I need aditional power suply add-ons? obviously a touch screen.
It jsut seems like at that price I could get a good start.
what do you think?
that really helps,.........
so now i'll spend a couple hundred bucks and experiment and find out that it wont work. or it will and you;re just a dick.
thanks, thanks a lot.
I'm trying to help you. If you're not willing to read to learn how to do this stuff, you need to either buy a prebuilt all-in-one unit (and spend a LOT of money) or find another hobby. And even if you buy a prebuilt, you need to figure out how to work it, trouble shoot it, use it, install it, etc.
btw - name calling - it's against the forum rules...consider this a warning. Next one gets you a 3 day ban.
Dude, you're putting a friggin PC into a car.
ANY PC can be a good starting point.
However, if you want to have the best chance for a successful, stable installation, you need to do some research. These forums and the FAQs that have been compiled are the best source of information for that research.
You were given a link to one of those FAQs, particularly one catering to newbies, like yourself. Rather than ***** about it and call a moderator a dick, why don't you take the information that was given to you and actually do some ******* research?
We're not going to hand you answers. We'll gladly point you to where the answers are, though.
BTW, is it just sort of funny that Red was called a dick, when she obviously has none?
This is the type of new member that causes us pain.
Wants the info but is not willing to help themselves.

Yes, you should search... and Yes, It has been covered before!
Read the FAQ!
yeup - hopefully this new member will snap into reality and realize this may not be the hobby for them....if they aren't willing to do the research.
my comment was unnecessary and I apologize .
