thats probably one of the dumbest "kits" i've ever seen.
first of all inverters are highly in-efficient,....you've got a laptop.....designed to take dc-dc.....why bring AC into the picture ....if you've already got a DC source?
secondly.....no shutdown controller.
My god, please type in a manner other than sending text messages from a cellphone. It's difficult to understand and interpret, which makes it difficult for anyone to assist you.
That looks like a DC-DC power supply, touchscreen and inverter. If you use the inverter, you don't need the DC-DC power supply and vice-versa.
That's not a complete computer setup, by any means, if that's what you're trying to get at.
im just throwing ideas out, i DONT know how to run a carpc (or laptop) to a cars audio! i just want the most simplest set up possible i have 700$ to start out with i can get a indash touch screen for like 200, i would buy a complete carputer but i dont know were to get the best deal on one and i dont and to spend more then 400, ok so if i do have a monitor (touchscreen) and a carputer, i will still need a speaker system i have NO audio in my 1978 car right now i have a radio and a ****ty speaker attached to it, i have a laptop, so i wouldnt need to buy a small pc unit for a car, if i had a laptop, i just need a way to power it the laptop and beable to keep it on when car is shut off, and i need to know how to run speakers from it to my car
