    Question Anyone tried to Mac Mini in *Smart ForTwo* ?

    I bought used Smart ForTwo this weekend. I am living in Turkey . I started to some customs on my car. I already buy screen (Xenarc 10.4), ~small car, big screen~, powersupply (p1900), mac mini, griffin power mate, miglia usb Tv micro....

    today i tinted my windows, i painted brake pad covers to green (because my car is green and black)

    Ok..... Finally, i will my my own car page soon (http://www.MACinSmart ) ... It will be available i think 2 weeks later.... and all my car works will done before semptember 15....

    These pictures are my sticker job for exterior.... They will apply tomorrow morning...

    Does anyone install mac mini or any kind of screen in ForTwo... Because I am little bit confusion )

    First - I love the Smart. It's a great choice to put a Mini in. I don't think I've seen any installs in the two seater version, but I thought I saw one in a four seat version. Go to the "Show Off Your Project" forum and search for 'Smart'. It may turn up.

    Second, I like the graphics, particularly the dock on the back window. However, don't you think this is like advertising to thieves that you have a computer in the car?

    Just so you know, i'm looking at losing the kenwood that is in at the moment, and getting this screen....!!!

    In Dash VGA Monitor

    And if you want the mini mounted near, we have measured up and can modify the draw underneath for the mini to be mounted as a second unit with the DVD drive available to use...

    you can easily install the mini in the second din slot.
    just get rid of the drawer in the center console.



    the smart is very easy to install in. Would have done it my self but my smart is besiege by my girlfriend.
