This is a very interesting trend I've had my eye on for some time. If the head unit becomes a common PC, at what point does it make sense to stop custom engineering the hardware from the ground up and start using COTS (common off the shelf) hardware from a larger manufacturer who can ensure more testing & qualification with greater reliability and serviceability? I'm sure it will take time, but at some point it could be the best option.
