Laptop with docking station?
Since I need to spend the money on computer components anyways, I've been thinking that it may be a great idea to use a laptop computer as my car pc. The idea is that I can use my laptop at work, home, vacation, beach, or where ever I go and then when I am in the car I can simply slide it into a docking station in my trunk. The docking station would be hard wired to the car itself so that when I plug in the laptop to the docking station all controls and input/output would then be transfered to external devices such as the touch screen panel, external usb drives likd dvdrom drives, all that stuff.
So my question is .. who here as done something similiar? What model notebook did you use, what docking station?
Dell has Inspirion 1000 notebooks for 699.00 after rebate right now and that would be worth it to me. However I can't find the type of docking station I want. Basically it is like a cradle that your palm pilot would fit into. You wouldn't have to manually plug wires in. I am trying to think of a better analogy but am coming up empty.
Any ideas? help? pictures?
