    Thumbs up Hemi con Mini

    Vehicle:
    2003 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 1500 Hemi

    Hardware:
    1.42GHz Mac mini with ComboDrive, 80GB hard drive, 512MB of RAM, AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth
    Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse
    Xenarc 1020TSV 10.2" LCD Touchscreen
    Panasonic UJ-845B Slot Loading Multi DVD burner
    CarNetix CNX-P1900 DC-DC Power Regulator

    Install Notes:
    After two years of planning, this is what I came up with. To make room for the Xenarc 1020TSV, I had to
    do a lot of cutting, relocate the AC controls and ditch the head unit. Yes, The audio from the Mac Mini runs
    straight to my four channel Infinity amp and JL Audio amp and subs. It sounds better than the Alpine I got
    rid of. I found a case from a 15" powerbook which I used for the power button on the dash. The holes in the
    aluminum worked out great because behind the power button resides the IR for my Keyspan remote. It has
    been a long and irritating process, but it almost done. Thanks to all the members of MP3Car and MacVroom.

    I dont think mac peripherals will work on a PC unless you write a 3rd party driver.

    However, mac osx is now obtainable for the pc

    Check it out here osx86project.org
    So guys, do you think this will help me score with chicks?

    Not sure about the bluetooth mouse but my Apple USB mouse works on the PC and the keyboard does too. So do the disk drives although you have to reformat them.
