    That's a good idea, but I while I kept the box, I didn't keep the styrofoam....

    and I don't want to keep my most valued possession in such a pretty box. (thieves)

    Can it fit under one of the seats? That way people couldnt see it if they walked by the car.

    If it's not running in the car...any padded bag or anything should be fine, just don't squash it.

    You seem like an intelligent person, so let's cut to the chase. We all know that there's only one solution that should even be on the table. Clearly, you need to mount that Mini inside your car, get a dash-mounted LCD display, and route power from the vehicle power system, with suitable backup power so that the Mini can be running when the car is not. You will also need to implement a touchscreen version of Front Row.

    So I suggest you stop this banter, pull out your credit card, and run (don't walk) to get the required equipment. And pray you have a sufficient credit limit. Oh, pray you have a sufficient credit limit.

    :eek: :eek:

    Yes, ahem, like others have said, as long as it's off, just make sure it's padded and it isn't crushed, and you'll be fine. A baby seat is overkill. If you have bubble sheets, just wrap it in that and throw it in a box. :)

    This takes me back... at college I had an LC 575, I used to transport it in the back seat with the seatbelt fastened around it.

    I'd just wrap some towels around the mini and shove it in a bag, personally...

    Wrap it in some blankets and/or clothes, it will be fine. Just don't wedge it anywhere or put it on the floor (too many vibrations). I moved up here with my G4 in a 67 Mustang and I just put it on the bucket back seats; seats absorb a ton of vibration, you'll be fine.
