“Ampie” CarPC Mini-ITX Case ReviewCarPC’s can have large amounts of storage space, limited only to your budget and what drives are available on market. They can output digital 5.1 surround sound, play any video file available, play any audio file available, run your GPS navigation, surf the web, watch digital TV, plug in any USB device including digital video/digital cameras, listen to digital radio and all that while you play your favourite game of Tetris
Another great thing is that they don’t skip! Try playing a CD or DVD on a bumpy rd and you’ll soon get the picture.
Standard home setup Carputer systems do come with a drawback though. Unless you really know what you’re doing, you will have issues with space, cooling, power (a Car battery is 12v and a PC runs at 240v) and setup. Actually, setup gets even harder if you’re trying to hook up a start-up/shutdown and reset button.
So what can you do to make it easier if you wanted to install a CarPC system? Get a specially built CarPC case!
