    I'd be curious to see them as well. I had thought about doing that, even back in my Commodore 64 days. Now that I have a laptop I didn't see as much of a point.

    wassup...
    re:JavaCarPC
    nice! that is pretty sweet.. i hope to get my system like that...

    i've decided to not use my minibook pc, rather i'm building a micro-atx based system, powering it with an opus poewrsupply (built in shutdown controller and relay!), prob mount my dvd drive in my glovebox or dash (under my pioneer headunit) and my pc in trunk by subwoofer...

    i'll try to update my site soon again with what i did try with my first attempt..
    got me a dremel too! so its on!!!!
    haha..
    peace

    Hi seamonkey
    Make sure the hard drives are far far far far away from the subwoofers otherwise your hard drives will be blank - subwoofer magnets are very strong
    I hope this helps

    Use Loc-Tite on your screws if your case is by the sub ;)
