    Question computer mount

    anybody have any idea on how to mount this mini-pc on the back of my seat in a way to where i can jus unplug my cables and pop of it out so i can take it out of the vehicle and use it. I want someting that will secure it well, yet easy enough to remove and reinsert.
    thanks for the ideas

    the picture of how and where i want it mounted is at this address:

    Velcro works pretty well and it's dirt cheap.

    i'd go with velcro also. I use it on my computer and it never moves around.

    There is always duck tape! Just kidding... There are many different ways you could do it, how much are you willing to hack into your back seat? Also, velcro itself wont wear out, but the sticky backing you would use to hold the velcro to the pc and seat back will (especially when really hot out) so I would think that would be poor way to go!

    okay, velcro is generically called "hook and loop" fasteners. Carpet works REALLY well as the "loop" part (the soft part). I have never had a problem with the velcro coming off the back of my phone, keyboard, GPS, or inverter, and they all sit directly in sunlight. One thing I would definitely do is secure the cables separately, though. The added weight of the cables might overcome the holding power of the mighty velcro--and use more than one little square.

    Just make your own holder. The computer is a squar, so just make something that locks on each of the sides. I can't tell you exactly because i don't have it in front of me but just be creative.

    You could sew it to the car. Either just straps that hold it on, or hold a piece of vinal to it or something, and go at it. poke some holes for the vents.
