    Custom Built Car PC's?

    This isn't a for sale thread.

    Is there a market for these things? I found a wholesaler for PC parts and can produce them fairly cheaply and custom build them to one's needs. I don't know if there is a demand for custom built CarPC's and don't really want to get into this and lose money.

    So is there anyone that would pick one up but is too intimidated to build one?

    Why build one when you can buy one already made. My old roomate was an engineer for Azentek for their car pc project. I have seen this thing in person and I absolutely loved it. It does everything and it's in dash.

    I want one! Do you have to email them for a price or something?

    To OP, if you made a nice system for a good price then I'm sure you could sell some. You would need to compete with this thing though.
