So after looking at what was going on here and what people are doing over at MP3Car.com I got up the steam to try and build a CarPC. My first version was a old laptop and a Dynamix 7" 800x480 VGA touch screen. When it was working, it was very cool, but 4 out of 5 times it would no boot or end up with a corrupt hibernation file.

V2 is now done and it's no slouch. Using an AMD Mobile AthlonXP 2400+ (1.35V @ 35W) running on a MicroATX Biostar mobo with 512 mb ram and a 40gb laptop drive. All in a box roughly 10x10x3 that fits in the glove box. It also has 802.11, GPS and I can hook up my Verizon Express network in a pinch.

Up front I am running Road Runner front end on WinXP.
