    2003 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 1500 Hemi

    1.42GHz Mac mini with ComboDrive, 80GB hard drive, 512MB of RAM, AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth
    Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse
    Xenarc 1020TSV 10.2" LCD Touchscreen
    Panasonic UJ-845B Slot Loading Multi DVD burner
    CarNetix CNX-P1900 DC-DC Power Regulator

    Install Notes:
    After two years of planning, this is what I came up with. To make room for the Xenarc 1020TSV, I had to
    do a lot of cutting, relocate the AC controls and ditch the head unit. Yes, The audio from the Mac Mini runs
    straight to my four channel Infinity amp and JL Audio amp and subs. It sounds better than the Alpine I got
    rid of. I found a case from a 15" powerbook which I used for the power button on the dash. The holes in the
    aluminum worked out great because behind the power button resides the IR for my Keyspan remote. It has
    been a long and irritating process, but it is almost done. Thanks to all the members of MP3Car and MacVroom.

                  pRoFiT, The slot loading drive is firewire which runs under the carpet to my center console where the mac mini sits. I tried to keep the whole set as simple as possible. You can plug and play any computer to this vehicle.

                    The Mac Mini has a combo drive. I added a slot loading, dual layer dvd burner from panasonic which has been converted to firewire.
