    Running Two Computers?

    Hey guys I am a noobie here and I have a question about running two computers at once. I have an Epia M9000 with a 20gig drive and 256 megs of ram. I also want to run a Mac iBook and a 7" Lilliput along with it. I will only have a GPS reciever hooked up to the M9000, and a USB sound card and powered hub hooked up to the iBook. The question I have is will an Opus 150 running the Epia and then a DC-DC regulator running the iBook work ok? I also am running a 300Watt Amp in the Car. Will I overload the system with this setup? If so can I just have my Alternator upgraded?


    Thanks for the help!!

    The Opus 90 watt would handle the EPIA M9000 and your GPS just fine.

    No, FBI survailance vans would use something far less reliable ;-)
