^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hello, I'm Wayne Cunningham, Senior Editor for CNET Car Tech. I'm at the Car Tech at the 2008 CES show. In our car right now, we have installed the Zentech [assumed spelling] CPC 1000. This is an in-car computer. This has all the kinds of things that will make a PC last in a car. Your desktop PC could not handle a car environment. This thing is shock proofed and designed to work in a dashboard. The neat units will run of a 1.66 gigahertz system it's got 1 gigabyte of ram in it; 120 gigabyte hard drive, it's got a touch screen; we've got a my music and that's actually looking at the my music folder because this is actually based on Windows Vista. So now we're looking at first of all our albums we have on here; we can also search by genre or artist and can punch any of these albums. There's a productivity button; now that productivity button is not something you normally see in a all in one set of car stereo unit; but with a PC you've got a browser, you've got contacts, you've got e-mail. This actually has other things you can hook up to such as a Wi-Fi hookup. There's also this little keyboard. This is kind of an add-on unit and with the keyboard it works wirelessly so you have a USB dongle plugged into the unit. You get a lot more control with the keyboard. That is the Zentech Atlas CPC 1000, it's a basic unit; there are a couple of new units launched at this show--the Calypso 1100 and the Atlas 1200. I'm Wayne Cunningham for CNET Car Tech at the 2008 CES. ^M00:01:39 [ Music ] ^M00:01:47
