    Sorry, but your grammar seems to have sucked up some words to properly understand what you want.

    Do you just wanna use your MB in your car, while driving, like you would if you'd sit at home?

    Or do you wanna hook it up somehow?

    I used my iBook (without any motion sensors for the HDD) in my car as a big iPod and it worked quite well.
    I had no hiccups while driving.

    I'm trying (so hard) to decode and play scrabble with the set of words in your question.

    Looks like you want to hook up your Western Digital blue drive to your Aluminum macbook and use it in your car?

    Yes, you can.

    I'll be very curious to know if I've answered your question (played well ;) )

    If you want to hook your computer up to a radio USB port, no you cannot. If you want to go to an aux in, sure.

    If you're asking if it will work in a car, yes...with an AC/DC adapter of sorts.

    Some cars like my own even come with built in converted/ 110v outlets now. No adapter/converter required.

    I believe the OP is asking if using a laptop while the car is moving is bad for it. Along the lines of bumps and vibrations etc.

    If you're a passenger sitting with the laptop then no harm should come to it if it remains on your lap.

    That is what notebooks are meant for and they have the motion sensors to help protect them so I say go for it. You should have no issues using your MacBook in your car.

    I hesitate to articulate for fear I may deviate from the true course of
    rectitude. What was the question?

    Invercargill-that's where the motorcycle guy set the speed records on his
    Indian, right? Anthony Hopkins played him-Burt I think it was.
