    2005 Acura TL Car-PC + Dell M1330 + EVDO

    This is my Current car (as of 02-15-08).

    I hope the Acura TL is going to last. I got rid of the eclipse because I drive over 40k miles a year and the eclipse wouldn't of lasted long.

    The little banner in the back advertises my PC repair business.

    I used my dell M1330 and I docked it behind the seat.

    The little Tablet with the keyboard is a Nokia N810. I was just fooling around with the dual monitor setup again.

    The picture of the lilliput LCD (Thats the new 2008 LED Model & Yes its brighter.) has OBDII screen on it so I can watch my cars sensors. all of the devices are connected via a USB hub underneath the seat.

    The camera has a Mic on it and doubles as voice control in Centrafuse.

    Sorry for the crappy description. Writing is my weakness and I can't keep my attention long from ADHD. now let me go dance

    @ Nysaz: It looks a lot less ghetto than a lot of the "more integrated" systems in some cars I've seen.

    This is a sleek install, compliments on a job well done.

    Yea I'm hitting the power button to turn it on. I don't really have to turn it off because i am charging it while the car is on.

    I'm using the Kensington 120 watt mobile power adapter. The Kensington has alot of electrical noise. (I bought the Carnetix power supply and it sucks becuase the laptop thinks its an unauthorized charger and it will only power the laptop and not charge the battery and the Carnetix will not do the wake on USB)

    How far off from the stock frame does your monitor sit? I was thinking of doing the same initially, but I figured that the cables leading into the monitor would be too thick. Are the cables you use very thick? How long did your install take you?

    Just went Dual Screen. Hell Ya.

    Well I just moved the screen down and used an L bracket. It looks a hell of A Lot better. I'm going to upload the new modification. Now i can see both screens.

    The cables are pretty flexible but I really recommend that you do it with the L-Bracket. Look at the new picture
