All In One PC for my Cranchi Endurance 33
I was considering putting in an All In One PC like the MSI Wind AE2020 in the cabin of my Cranchi Endurance 33.
It will be mostly for watching DVD's, browsing the Internet and streaming TV from my Slingbox at Home. Originally I had considered buying a big Flat Screen to supplement the installed Clarion car DVD/audio player, but thought I might as well add a full PC, with Touch and all the bells and whistles, and mount it on the wall.
I suspect that I will have to swap out the hard drive for an SSD, but my main query is with POWER. I know nothing about it.
MSI pride themselves on lower power machines. The AE2020 comes with a DC adapter, similar to a laptop, and the manual states this info:
120 watt AC/ DC adapter with active PFC
Input: 100-240V~, 50-60Hz, 2.0A
Output: 19V 6.3A
How does this compare to a normal car DVD/stereo, or a laptop?
Will this run down my batteries very quickly?
I have 2 Service batteries and a seperate battery for the Engines.
I also have a generator, but it humms, smells of diesel and is temperamental.
My primary concern is whether the kids can watch a movie or two in the cabin, while anchored in a bay, off the service batteries?
Or am I barking up the wrong tree completely?
Any help or advice appreciated.
