you could, but given it's a full laptop there's no easy way to mount it or actually use it when you are in the car, so with my boring safety hat on I'd say don't even bother.  Otherwise you'd have to mount in the back and then have some kind of control device, by which time you may aswell have just bought an idevice that's deisgned for such purposes in the first place.

When my parents go on long

When my parents go on long cruises they take a 1tb wifi hard drive.  You could leave one in the glove box.  Works fine with iPads and iPhones etc.
