Turn Your Laptop into a Fold-Down or Dashboard Screen

You may already have a nice LCD screen for your car, in the form of an old laptop.

We haven’t yet exhausted all the ways to get a flat screen into your car. A laptop, old or new, can be an excellent solution for an in-car installation.

But don’t worry, there are solutions to all of these problems.
