    It may work, but since it uses an external AC-DC converter (aka "power brick"), it's very likely that a Carnetix P2140 or even P1900 would be a better fit.
    It all depends on the DC output voltage of the power brick for this unit.

    From this thread, it uses 19.5vDC. That's a perfect fit for a Carnetx P2140. I don't know if the P1900 has enough power. It might. It might not.
    There was another thread on this PC. Its the size of a mac mini, but it uses a special power brick though, with a weird connector!

    Wonder if it would work with a brick, inverter, and the laptop shutdown module? When I first saw that system, I thought it would be a great choice, but more I looked, more I think it would be one headache after another. Need for sound card, usb hubs, no upgrading at all. It's cute, but I don't think it's a good choice.
    My opinion is my own.

    I linked to one thread that appears to indicate that the Studio Hybrid requires 19.5vDC. Is there another thread that has more information?

    Don't know about the laptop module, but it's very likely that a standard issue SSDC could handle the startup/shutdown duties.

    But inverters suck.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
