    gunshotspunture, you need to stop asking all the questions for a bit. I know you're excited because this whole idea is the coolest thing since sliced bread in your eyes. We were all that way when we found out that a computer in a vehicle is a real possibility.

    So rather than asking 80 gazillion questions that have already been asked by more people than you or I would care to count, benefit from some collective experience.
    There's a FAQ Emporium, which is a collection of useful information to anyone wanting to put a PC in their ride. I suggest you start reading there to get ideas about how to do what you want.
    Then, when you're done, you may still have some questions. Pare your question down to a couple of relevant keywords and search the forum for those keywords. You'll find lots of threads that have lots of bull****. You'll have to dig through the bull**** to get to a few nuggets of useful information. It's a long process, but trust me. IT IS WORTH IT.

    After you've done all that and STILL have questions, ask away, because at thyat point you're not likely to ask something that's been rehashed hundreds of times already.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Hey

    I install a laptop in my 2003 altima with no major problems :
    Hardware
    - Compaq Presario 2700
    - TM-868 8'' USB Touch Screen
    - Sony CDX-MP40 MP3
    - Sony XA-300
    Software
    - Microsoft street and trips 2005 with gps
    - Roadrunner (frontend)

    However I still need to come up with a way were I can get my laptop to shutdown and turn on when I turn off/start the car. I got an idea on how to do this but I got to play with it. Anyways the benefits of having a laptop is the laptop’s battery because even if you turn off your car you could still use the computer with out worrying about draying the car’s battery. So far I haven’t encounter any problems with it. by this Wednesday I’ll post some pictures of my set up I can’t do it until them because my brother toke my camera on vacation.
