    I use to have a dedicated mount for my laptop setup in my last truck. I wanted to be able to have the computer system in any truck or vehicle I go in. This is a really neat setup... Wait until I tell you the total I have into it (thanks ebay)

    The one power cord powers the laptop and printer and charges them both. I can print 350 pages on the printer battery, and almost 4 hours of use on the laptop with no power source.

    HP printer tucked underneath, paper exits out a chute in the front of the laptop.

    This is in the position you would print, see the paper coming out of the front.

    Great tool for estimating on the spot. I can set it up ready to print in any vehicle or place in under 60 seconds.

    Now for the greatest part...

    Total cost.... Includes used Dell Pent III laptop, printer with Lion battery, ink, cables, mouse, memory card, hub, new high capacity laptop battery, Wireless PCMCIA card, and custom mobile office case.....

    UNDER $600

    (did I say "thanks ebay" yet)

    Nice setup. That's just what I need. Price was right. Just spent $750 just on my laptop.

    Yea, I am sure your laptop is newer than mine though, But Pentium III 650mhz is pleanty for running quickbooks, excel, and PROLandscape.
