Seems like a great price for a 1.6 ghz atom, 512 mb of ram, and an 8gb SSD. They make a 12v>19v DC car charger for the dell mini 9 to power it for $8 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...443336&afsrc=1). I need something to control the power button though, any ideas? I was going to use the MiniSpark (using wake on lan) but I guess the mini 9 doesnt support WoL. Is there a way to T the remote turn on lead from my amplifier to the power button on the laptop?
EDIT: I found out they make touchscreen conversion kits for the dell mini 9s for like $80. If someone can show me how to extend the LCD cables I can mount the dell mini's screen in the dash and mount the mini in the glovebox and have a working carPC and touch screen for under $400.
EDIT2: Just found out you can't extend the monitor that far, has anyone stuffed an entire netbook behind the dash?
