    Arrow 1965 VW Beetle - Low budget CarPc

    Hello guys....
    I am new to this hobby but i have put a few things together
    and i decided to built a carpc... As a (working)student i cannot
    afford a lot of money but for my needs (mp3 and a movie)
    These things will be enough(i hope so...)
    Napoli I Motherboard
    Celeron CPU 633Mhz @ 2euros
    HDD 20Gb
    PSU 350Watt already in house
    An extra PSU which connects directly to the cars battery and gives out 220V
    @ 35euros
    Hami 8" @ 130euros @ebay
    Mini keyboard @ 10euros also @ebay

    I have almost everything in house, i am just missing the display yet but its on its way...
    I have not started building but will in the next week...
    here is a photo of my car with its "kid" the new beetle
    cya soon
