    Mac mini mobile

    Ok, you guys have made me fall in love again! This is my new passion: To make a hand held mac with off the shelf parts.

    Premise: 1.25 Ghz Mac mini only needs about 30 watts if you don't dump the DVD player

    Two of these would put out about 39 watts, right?

    Would this work?

    Mac mini --$380 from a friend
    1900 DC adaptor--$99
    8" touch screen -- $350
    Pair of Yellow Bar power sources -- $70

    Thoughts?

    There are better options than the autojumper you have there. There is a $30 battery charger from walmart that has an ac plug for such use, and has over 30A if Im not mistaken. It is rated at 12 hrs for a 60W light. (EDIT: Something like that)
    I can't see this solution as being "hand-held," however.
    Carputer status: [-*---------]
    Im thinking laptop...
