Tower PC in 2005 Classic

I'm working toward's a purchase of a new 34' Classic, non-slide. Anyone prefer a tower PC to a laptop and if so, and you have a Classic with a credenza, how did you mount the tower. It appears that the credenza itself is too small for a mid-size tower.

Check out the Cybernet ZPC computers. They are regular computers built into the keyboard. More expensive than a Dell but great if you have a space issue and still want a full size keyboard. I have a couple of the older models and have been very happy with them.

hi jbangham and welcome to the forum and the world of airsteamers.

the 34s are great and you love it should you go for it.
a mid tower would fit in the credenza if the shelf was removed.....it also could be mounted under/inside the sofa arm or under the dinette at the curbside wall.

but the question is would it be wise? these are travel trailers and while they ride smoothly, things do get bounced around. most tower pcs aren't as shock/environment resistent as i'd want....

i use a big ol' lap top with a built in wireless keyboard and mouse.....it works great but toshiba no longer makes this model....so next might be something like dennis suggests......or i might go over to the dark side........to a mac.

hey dennis

what's the latest greatest solution for mobile internet/wireless broadband.....something that is actually useable now.

i see that sprint/nextel and verizon are lowering prices on their wireless broadband packages but their markets are still limited to big metro areas....

i want access virtually anywhere and cell phone included isn't an absolute need. does this mean i need a dish system?

thanks

I've already built the pc to withstand reasonable shock and high ambient temps, rubber mounts on hard drives, extra fans, and have no need for a slide tray as I am using bluetooth technology for the keyboard and mouse. The top of the credenza would make a good place to mount a flat panel monitor if the tower would fit in the credenza. If it's not a fit then I'll certainly consider trying to duplicate the features on the mid-tower in a new laptop. Trouble is, there's not many portable computers that can match the features of a well-built pc.
