I’m getting tired of driving with the laptop open on the seat next to me. Plus, it makes it extremely difficult to have passengers with the rediculous wiring jumble on the floor and passenger seat when I have all my PC equipment set up in the car. I’ve taken on a new project. The Jaypoc CarPC!
I’ve ordered an 8″ Touch Screen VGA monitor made by a company called Lilliput Electronics. eBay had some good deals on the display at just uder $300 shipped. I got my FedEx confirmation today, so I should have the monitor by the end of the week. I’ve spent some time researching software and found quite a few “CarPC” front-ends to give my CarPC an authentic mobile system look and feel.
For the meantime, My laptop will serve as the brains for the CarPC. Once I work out some of the kinks, I’ll build a dedicated box for the car itself. Anyone who’s seen my room knows that I have the extra computers laying around. It shouldn’t take long to put together a working PC. Who knows. Maybe I’ll even invest in a new mini-itx system or even one of the nifty in-dash PC systems they make now. (Yes, There’s whole computers that will fit in your dash in place of a radio!)….Maybe I’ll replace my radio with a CarPC system altogether…
Okay, I doubt that. But it’ll be fun!
….and who knows what else I’ll think of.
You are such a geek! I love it!!!
Keep us posted.
Honey, I say this with love and an undying kindred attachment – YOU NEED TO GET LAID!!
that’s why geeks rule.
plus, you reminded me that i can look at some flat screens for my new pc on ebay. i’ve been meaning to do that…
Is that an offer? 🙂
You know it is baby – it’s time we stopped fighting our true feelings and just gave in. You. Me. Tonight. We’re cybering – the ultimate in geek-sex. 😉
lol. Do you think you can keep up with me? 🙂
Baby, I type 92WPM – I am a computer geeks wet-dream. 😉
You are such a geek!!!!!! But I guess that’s what attracts me to you in some weird odd way. …LoL
A CarPC was a great idea. I told you that from the start. I don’t mind holding the laptop. It’s what’s on the floor under my feet I’m scared of ruining….LoL
Janice’ll cyber, but I’ll do the real thing 😡
