  • Yet Another newbie question :)

    OK, i got a couple question, but ill make it worth everyones while. just got my porsche boxster and i need to doooo something to it cause its just dying to get a computer put in. I plan on using a laptop that i had layin around, its pentuim 3 , pretty quick so that shouldnt be so bad. I was just about to order my lilliput and i got a space right where the radio is so it will fit perfect. 1 quick question i got is about the power, i no its a lil easier to use a laptop or so i read somewhere so what exactly can i use for this instead of if i was to use a tower say. Any help would be appreciated. As soon as i get this poppin, i will post some pics, im sure everyone here will love em . Thanks a lot

    If I read this correctly, you are asking how to properly power a tower....click

      I think he was asking how to supply power to the laptop?

      Look into either an air/auto adaptor for your laptop or an inverter. I think the first option would be better and easier but the second is good too.

        i was asking about a laptop. i wanted it to be enclosed so there would be no wires. So you thinkin an adapter would be good, i would have to go to a shop so they can connect that internally right ? Thanks for the help

          The air/auto adapter would plug into the laptop where the home power supply plugs into it. Basically replacing the home power supply. It's pretty much a specialized cigarette lighter plug.
