    It has a touch-screen LCD, Internet access, FM radio, 100GB of storage (upgradeable), sleep and hibernate mode. It's a complete how to custom fit a cumpter in your car. Since there are no proprietary components you could build it all yourself. You can even install GPO with you GPS.

    Now there is no excuse not to compose anywhere.
