OPUS recently came out with a 320W DC-DC PSU with built in startup/shutdown controller.
Now we can run even more powerful computers and not have to deal with using a power inverter.

ok guys, i'm in a delima. i really want to put a carpc in my grand cherokee, but i'm not sure if my dash is going to allow me to. heres the thread i made over at mp3car.com, but sometimes it just takes forever for people to respond. maybe some of you who have actually installed before could offer some advice. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=98638
according to the dimensions i found, it might be possible to fit the 7" lilliput in the stock cd player location, but i'm 100% sure.
posted in your thread with a link.

Glare on a Lilliput is pretty bad when it's direct sunlight. Pretty much unreadable and there is nothing you can do to fix it unless you change the type of touchscreen it uses. If you have darker tint it definitely helps though.
yeah i'm definately looking at getting some darker tint, and i'm also putting it lower in the dash. i've noticed the sunlight doesn't hit it directly in the lower part of the dash too much. the transreflective screen would be nice, but i'm not spending more money on a 7" screen than a 32" for my home lol.
glare ***** when direct sun hits it. id take a Xenarc any day though, but the xenarc has a glossier screen i beleive but it has a brighter screen to compensate for it, i had the opportunity to play with REDGTis once in person. She had hers positioned in such a way where she didnt get sunlight hitting it from when i was playing with it & i love how the Xenarc doesnt have that "glass" touchscreen aswell.
i got 5% tint, but my screen is positioned bad, it never occured to me the sun would hit it. That was bad planning on my part. Had i made the screen slightly more vertical and less diagnol i probally wouldnt have this problem.
have you considered a flipout since u only have a 1.5 din?
the Screen is the one part of the CarPC that you use every time. It's what will make or brake your install and will make or brake the use of your carpc.
