    I want to see if anyone has put any mac devices in their cars... iPod, Mac Mini to a screen, MacBook Pro on a laptop stand etc.

    I've always dreamed of getting a Mac Mini and somehow hooking it up to a screen so I can have both music and movies at my fingertips

    But anyways, please post some pics and a short list of the equipment you guys are using to Mac it in your automobile!

    I don't have anything Mac-related in my car (since I don't have a car), but I, too, dream of putting a Mac Mini in one.

    Count me in with this camp, too. I have one of the Alpine decks. While the interface is not as great as the iPod's (I bought one of the lower end models), it is still awesome enough that I know I'll be doing it in every car I get from now on.

    I installed one of these (an Alpine iDA-X100) a few weeks back and it's superb. I was confused about what additional lead I needed so ordered the optional one as well. Turns out I don't need this for my iPod Video which works fine (album graphics'n'all) with the supplied lead but it does allow me to keep my iPhone charged as well and switch between my iPod Video and iPhone whenever I wish.

    The iPod connectivity is superb.

    We have a Land Rover and I'm researching the same type of thing you are and came across this...

    We also had a Toyota PRIUS and there are a ton of MACs people have put in them. Just Google MacMini Prius to get some ideas.
