You had a 5055 in your car?  That's just just "kinda big", that's a 
brute!  It's a Windows machine with a built-in touch-screen designed to 
be mounted on a forklift in an industrial environment.  Hitting normal 
windows menus and such on that screen isn't difficult at all.  640x480 
stretched over, what was it? 9 inches diagonal maybe? makes the font big 
enough to read and the menus large enough to hit, nearly even with a 
gloved hand.

How in the world did you mount that in a car?  The thing must weigh in 
at 20 pounds (ok, that's probably an exaggeration, but not by much).
