    600mhz, upgraded to 40 gig HD, running windows XP with 256 megs of ram, now to purchase an 8in touchscreen.
    What do you think? ;) I also have a mini keyboard to go with it!

    Thats pretty tight. I was thinking of building myself one too, but not enough money or time.

    One thing is, with your specs, XP is going to run like a turtle. Windows 2000 would perhaps be a better choice.

    Sweet. :thumbsup:

    I love carputer projects. The way I want to put things together always costs way too much though.
