    I did some tuning for a guy last year that had one of these mounted under the dashboard of the car and hard wired to the battery. It's about 5x5 inches. Worked really well.

    He had like a 9" touchscreen mounted in the dash and he kept a wireless keyboard and mouse to work with it between runs. I don't want the screen in my dash but I'm planning to get a 14" laptop that I can hardwire and make a holder for it on the passenger side of the trans tunnel to keep it handy.

    Best = 9.43 @ 149.15 mph, 1.30 60 foot 28 psi boost

    I like how small those units are but prefer windows or even linux over chrome os or any type of "mobile style'' environment. Windows has been around forever so there's a ton of third party applications available

    Laptops always work well. I had one in the car years ago but I got tired of fiddling with it.

    Best bang for the buck would be to get $100 head unit and build a PC from a MiniITX form factor.

    You could always run raspberry pi as well if you want really small

    I'm not sure if that is the same one he had. His did have windows on it. I even remote tuned it a couple times. He would hot spot it off his phone and I would log in it remotely to pull the datalogs off, make changes to the tune on my PC and save a tune back out to it. It was a neat experience tuning a car from 1000 miles away when I didn't even get to see the pass.

    That is kinda crazy to think you are real time tuning a car from that far away haha. If it had windows it was probably an Intel NUC or Gigabyte mini-pc. You guys are making me think about dusting off my NUC for a future project.
