    Your not wrong about the pictures being massive, I saw one at 1.4mb :shocked:

    That all looks good there. So what are you running..... Car PC, DVD headunit, TV?

    What size screen have you fitted up the top and how easy was it to fit?

    just now its only really running off the dvd HU - i hit a bit of a stumbling block on the pc front as i wanted to go for the nano route - but there not much support for it yet and there is no cases available that my specific board will fit, so i either have to do a custom case or go back to the drawing board. it would also involve having to get all the connectors for tv out sound etc to be soldered onto the pins directly which is going to be a bit of a pain!

    so for the pics i just used a spare lappy to demo it

    the top screen is 5.8 widescreen and it didnt take that much more effort to get it fitted, just needed to cut away some more space and then even it all up.

    Did you see all that pc talk go straight over my head

    The 5.8" screen up top.... Did you find one with no buttons or remote eye on the front or is thats whats extended to the ash tray?

    There is no need for a Nano to be honest. The normal ITX is small enough, but quicker and much cheaper compared to the Nano.

    But personally I would choose a Pentium-M ITX board, because the VIA CPU isn't really quick enough for high-res Mpeg4 movies

    Unfortunately if you decided to go for the car pc route, you might need to get rid of one of your screens... in favour of a touch-screen VGA monitor.

    yeah there's totally no need for it but its ****in tiny which means it can be put anywhere you like. i dont see how its really any slower than its big sister and havent noticed it not being able to cope with anything thats thrown at it...

    the screen in the middle is a VGA touchscreen but good idea nonetheless
