    has to be boot, if you can enclose the whole thing in a case vent a fan vent, then u might consider under the passanger seat (if you have room) no case means it will get dirty and kicked often.

    i've just started on a custome "floor" for my boot, will post pics later but basically, its a false floor onthe boot about 2" high that will house amp/psu/speakers and lappy (with docking station)

    Uhhhhh.... Why?
    Let's use that logic in another situation...

    I know that this is your refrigerator, but I took a **** in it....

    Moved to the Gen. Hardware forum.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Depends on the vehicle really, if you've got a ford f-350 you might be able to put the entire laptop in the center console. Some kind of shelf under the passenger seat could work. The trunk is probably the easiest though...
