You may remember I wanted to mount my Acer upside down in the vehicle, change the screen orientation and with a remote keyboard/finger mouse, open it like a visor and get to work!
NOT! The lap top performed fine upside down, sideways or diagonally. It turned out in the end it was shear size that mattered.
Now before you censor me, this has nothing to do with body parts, it has everthing to do with computer parts. The lap top is much to large to do a "clean" install. But then I got to thinking, what if I buy a 10" monitor and mount that on the visor, run all needed cables from the monitor on the visor to the lap top. (kind of using the lap top as a tower)
I thought I could build a platform high in the back for the laptop, where it would be dry, cool and out of harms way,and be easily disconnected for out of vehicle use. Being I only have two USB's on the lap top the thought was to purchase a powered multi USB hub for the printer, remote keyboard/finger mouse. Is this feasible ?? Some of the monitors are touch screen enabled with USB and VGA inputs. Others are VGA only, some are USB only. Does the length of the VGA/USB cables matter? Is there a good place to purchase a small monitor? Should all these items be surge protected, or is a inverter on its own adequate? My question is, if you were going to do this in your vehicle and you wanted everthing to work correctly-how/what would you do?? What type of materials would you use??
