I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but I really, really don't understand the electrical side of all this.
I have a thin client that will be my car PC, and it has an external power brick that takes in AC and outputs 12V 4A. Since the PC runs on 12V, can I omit the power brick and run the PC straight off of the car's electrical system? Is this a bad idea? If so, what would you guys recommend instead?
Thank you very much in advance.
