Some questions for Tablet setup
I'm considering using a Viewsonic Viewpad 1000 Tablet as a CarPC. According to its specs, the power rating is:
AC Adapter - 90 - 265V AC 50/60Hz; 16V DC Output Voltage; 2.0A 40W Power Output
Considering that it has such low power usage, would it be a viable option to use an inverter like this in the 12v power outlet (cig lighter spot) - Click here
Also, I was thinking of not directly mounting the tablet onto the car, rather sort of have a mounting arm or a similar concept so that the tablet can be removed easily and any given point and be somewhat movable (it will be removed basically anytime I leave the car to prevent theft). What is a good option for this? I've seen some fancy swing-arm mounts on ebay, but I was looking for something that could hold my tablet vertically (facing me), as the ones of ebay are perpendicular (more for laptops that have a full keyboard).
I wasn't even aware a forum like this existed, I'm glad there are people who like having a PC in their cars :)
