    and, again, if i remember right, a dual core pentium 5300 is a 65 watt processor-- so, assuming that all of this guestimating is correct, you would need 13 of those 5 watt, 20" square, solar panels just to power up the processor, then you also have a couple more watts for powering the board, hard drive(s), accessories, and will have to account for less-then-optimal-sunlight angles-- so by the time your done, you would need a semi truck trailer with unfoldable solar panels .

    not trying to be so negative, just realistic on power requirements-- i posted my engine off run time, because, until i recently installed the pentium 5300 in my car, i had no idea how much power these computers are sucking--i have always used highpowered computers at home, so i would just plug them into a wall outlet, and they just work, so because of that, i think i desensitized myself to how much power those little buggers suck-- i can throw figures around all day, but until you see your battery go from 13 volts to 9 volts in a matter of 1-2 hours, the power requirements of monster computers become very real. just this alone has me worried-- enough that i am probably going to start carrying one of those battery jumpstart packs, and wondering what i can do to keep the processing power, but limit the power consumption...
