We take a tiny Albatron KI51PV-754 Mini-ITX based motherboard and turn it into a Car PC - check out how we did it!

Introduction

 

While we have been looking at a lot of high-end equipment on TweakTown as of late, we tend to forget sometimes that while high-end is good, it's not all of the market. In fact, enthusiasts only make up for around 12% of the market - while that's a lot of money, most sales are in mid-range PC and the retail sector for point of sale and various other segments.

 

One of the other sectors is the micro PC environment (today's subject is Mini-ITX) that people love to have as their home theatre PC's or even car computers.

 

Today we are not only reviewing a Mini-ITX motherboard that we think is ultimately the best car and HTPC motherboard to hit the market, we also built ourselves a rather basic yet impressive car PC into one of our FWD vehicles.

 

Today Albatron enters the micro PC market with their KI51PV-754 motherboard. We'll first take a close look at the board and then built it into a car and show you how we did it.
