      Nice job! A great how-to for folks who want to put a Macbook/iBook in their car instead of a Mini. I'm moving this thread to the Show off your Project forum, but will put a link in the Mac centric links sticky thread.

          That's awesome. I will actually update some of the pictures and details in the upcoming days. This way I can showcase the other items I mentioned, such as the cabling, the trackpad and the power connections. Also, I found this amazing freeware software program called InsomniacX, which prevents the MacBook from going to sleep when on the power connector and would allow you to run the computer in clamshell mode (display shut). Anyway, I will get that information updated. Thanks!

                Wow this looks awesome....I really want to install my Macbook into my MINI...I'm not looking to take it apart so I'm thinking I will have the computer dock somewhere and then it will attach to a touch screen

                    looks good but damn expensive to use a 1200 dollar macbook in the car (unless you also use it out of the car). also, you will definitely kill your battery capacity really fast with your current setup. i would suggest at least every week or two to let the battery fully drain before charging it up fully again. draining a little and then plugging it in to charge is going to ruin any battery. i personally have a macbook (not for the car), and i make every effort not to plug back in until the battery is drained.

                    edit: nvm, saw the deal you got. 550 is a steal! but still an awful waste of a beautiful laptop to keep it sitting in the trunk. id sell it, make a few hundred bucks, and get a mini.
