Noob in distress! First carputer ideas
A big hello to all.
First off I am a noob.A complete NOOB.
And what I am about to try and embark on is something iv thought about for a long time and I'm going to need help.
With the liitle research done iv got a small knowledge in what i want.
My car: Ford Focus 2004 Zetec
Iv got an unused computer with a dvd drive and 15gb harddrive laying around. Im thinking,somehow install in car. Now I'd want to use this pc for general stuff while im bored, say typing some stuff (wirelss keyboard in glove box) and perhaps entertaining friends on road trips by playing some games off the harddrive(sum old snes games and stuff) and perhaps when the car is not in motion playing games from the dvd drive.And of course watching dvds.
-Spare computer being used
-I can play games
-I can type stuff,its more impressive than other options as its capable of doing more stuff.
-I dont think PLAYING dvds or playing games off the dvd drive hile driving is a good idea, if i hit a pot hole would it scratch the disc to bits?
-Computer cant play games from say the last 3 to 4 years
-How do i power it?Surely the pc wont run off the 12v input will it?How would I power it?
-It would have to be mounted in the boot, how can i get a wire long enough to go all the way to the screen up front??
XBOX in car under seat
-Its a friggen XBOX!!
-I can play up to date kick *** games
-Cant play games while on the move, would it scratch?
-Its not a pc and therefore i cant type stuff or anything like that
-Id have to keep taking the xbox out to play games inside
-Overheating under the seat?
Sorry if this is the wrong forum!
