Only reads Fat16 and Fat32. But from what I could see it doesn't need a OS. Just the HD crammed full of MP3's. Would need much of a PS.

I don't know, given that MP3 support is so common in car audio gear these days it hardly seems worth the trouble rigging up something like that. It has a couple advantages like massive storage and that optional CF adaptor but when weighed against the lack of any kind of obvious network or external connectivity support (making adding/removing songs to it an absolute pain in the a***, depending on how you choose to mount it) and lack of real integration with the rest of your audio gear an MP3 capable head unit and/or stacker still seems the better option to me.

That looks pretty good! I wonder how much.

I guess it all depends on what youre trying to acheive too. My main purpose of having an in-car PC is for monitoring and editing the Engine Management plus GPS/Navigation.
