    Didn't see the last three pictures looks like it would work well and fits in the truck pretty good.

    i run an almost identical set-up to k&s although i rely on wifi internet connection hotspots from local restaurants or coffee houses for my net connections.

    love that printer, btw. that's the best time saver i've got.

    What would you be using the net for while working? Are you hooked up to gps, or maybe using mapquest or something? I really like the laptop printer setup, I think it could really save some time, also giving the estimate onsite would probably close a few deals in itself.

    What type of cellphone internet service do you use? Is the internet access a decent speed? Just wondering. Decent setup BTW.
