Here is the plan, please shoot it down if its a bad idea.
Ok, been working on the details for my carputer so here are some of them.. i plan to mold in a xenarc touchscreen into the double din area where my stock HU is now. Ill run an older laptop that i have with an inverter but here is the beauty of the laptop:
The laptop has two batteries built in with a good 3-4 hour battery life. So i can run the carputer inverter free for most of the time and when im not using it i can run the inverter to charge the batteries.. This way i dont have to worry about the surges i get from starting the car with the system on and i dont have to worry about it killing my battery. Does this sound like a good idea or is there some major detail i left out?
here is what my truck looks like as of now, i plan to remove the stock HU and install the touchscreen
