I am thinking of Opus 360w for my carputer. I won;t need it but then there is only $5 difference between 250W and 360W PSUs.
And since I am told that 360W will not draw higher power from my battery (for same output), so why not?

I have also been bitten by the Carputer bug. Have bought the following items already;

1. Lilliput 7 " Touchscreen
2. Pico-PSU 150 Watts Power Supply
3. Holux Bluetooth GPS receiver.

It will be a looong project as finances are at an all time low.

Esteem_lover, share the pricing and did you got it shipped with providers, or someone is bringing them to you.

just entering the band wagon! I've got the car PC built up. needs to be integrated to my car, a black alto or a getz (alto is my everyday car). interestingly, we had built this PC for a stretch limo we had made 3 yrs ago. after the show, we pulled the PC out and ever since its been unused. only now the whole exercise is taking shape. we are currently making some flash based applications to run as the interface on the touch screen.
Will keep you guys posted.

I am also looking for building up carPC for my Indica Vista. Right now finances are tight. Here are the stages which I am planning to do it in...

1) First get he music system with good quality. Already started work on this. Changed to front components. Now Planning for rear ovals. Then I will have four channel amplifier in place. I am doing with current OEM HU. I am not changing this because anyway after carPC I have to scrap Head Unit.

2) Then I will go for touch screen monitor and PSU for car PC and couple this with my current home PC (If current Home PC is not power hungry and I think it is not). Problem is that getting touchscreen monitor. Because iRide is quoting too much price for lilliput around Rs.14k. Another guy with name AMS is quoting Rs.11k. In US we can get it for $150 which is cheaper option and ask a friend to bring it to India. And some chinese trade website also offers at cheap price with worldwide shipping but does anybody have experience with this kind of shopping. If anybody could guide me in import process and implications, then that would be a great thing.
I would be happy if all of us who are interested in carPC, club their orders then we can bargain with indian sellers. But I know lot of trust and coordination is required in this activity.

It seems that major problem is Touchscreen Monitor with right price.

on ebay US it is $173. I mentioned earlier $150. Actually it is $173

http://cgi.ebay.com/Lilliput-7-EBY701-NP-C-T-VGA-Touch-screen-free-ship_W0QQitemZ200347494176QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCar_V ideo_Navigation?hash=item2ea5a42720&_trksid=p3286. c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12|66%3A2|39%3A1|72%3A1205|2 40%3A1308|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50


Another option I do not know how it will work.
Get 7" LCD monitor( normal Chinese DVD player car monitor), which you can manage it for around Rs.2500 to Rs.3000. And modify/change its input circuitry so that it will accept VGA inputs. (its not VGA to RCA conversion). I heard it somewhere but I could not recall where. But sure there is way to do this. Get 7" touchscreen attachment which is not available easily in India, it should cost around Rs.2k to 2.5k and bundle all things together to get your touchscreen monitor. It could give more DIY satisfaction and will save cost.

Monty ji, you purchased around 18 months back, major price difference now is
dollar was Rs.37 or so at that time, now its whopping 49+
so it turns out to be same cost in USD but a increased cost in INR.

I feel the Expensive Dollar pain everyday in business. eeeek
