    One is the voltmeter, I need it since I installed the amp and subs, the voltage needs to be maintained at a certain level or the computer shuts down. So when I stop at the stop light with my headlights on, music playing, etc. I need to watch that gauge and turn stuff off so it doesn't drop below 12 volts.

    The other one is the temp gauge, originally intended to measure coolant temperature of the car, it is used to measure the temperature of the laptop CPU that's sitting under my seat I put that gauge in just for the sake of symmetry.

    There are quite a few turboed Saturns out there
    And I'm actually planning to put a Garrett T3 in my next car, which is going to be a Saturn coupe.

    Hooray! The Tablet has arrived, so my new system is officially in.
    Sorry, no pics yet, gotta find my camera.

    I love it, it looks a bit cheap, but it's very functional and I'm loving the touchscreen and USB functionality.
    My friend got my previous system and is installing it into his Ford Tempo.
    I still have two more carputers lying around waiting to be assembled into something, but I don't have any use or space for them in my car

    Warning: Opinions stated below are merely my own, and based on my own experience. Different people's experience causes they're opinions on these subjects to vary.

    Why do you have that much **** in your car? I hate to say it, but it looks like trash (in my opinion). It could be that I work with machines all day long, and really find it slicker to have a minimalist solution, with the most power (i have a box of laptops in my office, cause i'd rather have one machine that does everything). I mean, why is that pda there? can't the pc do that? (ignoring that your pics give the impression that you drive with a laptop on your lap, which would in fact be one of the dumbest ideas to date)

    Also curious to see what you plan to do with a tablet in that car? I use a tablet when I have meetings, and although it has it's uses it would be much less useful in a car than a simple touch screen.

    One other concern, theft? I'd just be worried that with a screen and keyboard sitting out like that someone will pop the window and take it. I understand car alarms help (have a compustar for that very reason), but still, if stuff is in plain site it's asking to be stolen. But this also depends where you live (I live downtown in a large city, 'secure' parking garages aren't).
