Default Car Computer

Anyone have a car computer in their ride? It would be a neat idea, especially if its hooked up to the speakers, and get a cool LCD display for it. Play games, watch dvd'* and other stuff to. Check it out, oddly enough it was a pop up add that got my attention.

i dont think that would be worth it, they are talking $1000 for a basic one...

i think a broken screen laptop would work much better, just mount it under the seat and get a lcd in the dash....

i know someone back from mankato that had that setup, but it was in a crappy car and wasnt installed the prettiest, so i didnt look to hard at it

for me, just hooking my laptop up to my aux port on my receiver works great for now

My recommendation for a car pc is probly a shuttle pc. Its small upgradable and is fairly cheap. You can get a system for just over 600 dollars with all the niknaks.
