    This is what I got, works great!

    No need for a tank circuit, laptop will run off of internal battery while starting the car (so even a crappy laptop battery can be ok).

    You could use a power inverter directly connected to the battery, then simply plug your AC adapter into the inverter and run it from there. If you want I actually have one for sale. Check out my ebay link
    New CarPC on the way again I think. I miss my old one!!!
