Very nice, about time someone came out with a small footprint well-specced car PC.

The only thing that I think they could have done better would have been to have WiFi built-in with a port on the side to allow for an extended antenna to the cars roof. What's the point of a car PC w/o the internet??

I guess a feasible way for connectivity would to run a USB extension cable up to the kawkpit near the center console area where you could plug in your data-enabled cell phone to use as a gateway for internet which would give you a more consistent connection whilst moving.

Be nice in something van sized I guess

I was just thinking that there's not much space in a car for a screen etc.
