    Case is about 2.5 CD's wide+tall, 3/4 CD deep. Somehow looks bigger in the picture.

    Did nothing to the EEEPC, I want to be able to take it out easily and use as a normal PC if needed. No software config was necessary either. The WOL cable just works as is, plugged into the network port.

    I believe Wake-On-LAN usually has to be enabled in the BIOS setup. Perhaps it's built in as standard on the Eee, or it's enabled at the factory.

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    Bought Centrafuse just now, the Australian version. I believe it is the best carpc interface solution (yes it is expensive, but you pay for what you get), plus its the only one with AU maps, so it was an easy decision for me.

    I believe more people should give priority to purchasing their software, so it does'nt go the way of StreetDeck, etc. When you think about it, how many people would buy this software in a month? And they have to pay all the people in the company. I really wonder how such businesses stay afloat.

    I will be updating this page, plus my new page at Centrafuse forums:
    http://forums.fluxmedia.net/project-...pc-photos.html

    I certainly won't be leaving here, but thanks to everyone for your assistance so far

    im really surprised that no one uses it as a car pc. the eee pc beats any via board out there for the price, size, and portability.

    and thats for the cd shot. keep those pictures rolling =)

    I think we'll see more EEECARPCs in the future.

    I'm thinking my Version 2 will be using the same EEEPC, stripped of the case/screen make the whole thing alot simpler and smaller.

    OK so one final question, if i just want to power the ee pc nothing else, how does it wire up, and yes please can u post a diagram and maybe a picture? Im gonna use the remote, of the Head Unit rather than ignition cause I will only want it on when Head unit is one, same as amp and sub.

    Cheers for all youre help

    heres the diagram showing how i've set mine up to turn on the EEEPC.

    if your using the head unit remote on lead (the one which tells the amp to turn on, im guessing?) i'm not sure if this gives a constant 12v when head unit on, or just a momentary blip of 12v. if its just a blip, you'd need an additional relay setup to convert that blip to a constant on which is more complicated. the www.the12volt.com site has details on this setup (Pulsed to Steady Output) here http://www.the12volt.com/relays/page5.asp#pts

    disclaimer: i've taken all care to make sure this diagram is correct, but its 9am so if this blows up your system, tells your girlfriend her bum looks big in those pants, and burns your cookies, it ain't my fault but yeah im sure its correct.

    Oh okay so the power adapter is always plugged into the EEEPC, the Wake on Lan just tells the pc to start up! I get it now lol, that pulsed to steady looks ok(ish) I will give this ago when my EEE arrives
