An article on shows a Mac user who’s integrated a Mac Mini into his Subaru and put in some extra hardware and software to create both an entertainment system as well as a utility that can access the Internet at broadband speeds on the go, get directions, check local gas prices, etc.
The system uses the following hardware and is powered by Mac OS X, AMP 1.0 (a software front end that functions like a more powerful version of Apple’s Front Row), DisplayConfigX to allow Mac OS X to function with the 7″ Lilliput Touch Screen and a BlueTooth connection to a cell phone to share wireless broadband Internet.
The entire package runs just under $1,400.
