I've done plenty of reading and searching on this site, and now I'm ready to ask some questions.
First, I'm not an electronics guru or car stereo guru. I am a computer guru however (software developer actually). Because of this, I don't feel comfortable connecting wires to the car battery, or soldering wires to motherboards, or any other kind of custom stuff involving soldering irons. So, what options do I have for getting this thing installed? Can I:
a) Get a professional installation and trust they'll do it the right way (and not get charged an arm and a leg for it)
b) Connect it to the same power connectors a standard radio head unit uses (*most preferred method if possible*)
c) Trust an inverter that uses the cigarette lighter (would need it for both the monitor and computer though).
This would be for a mini itx board and a 7" touchscreen monitor.
