MINIMOUNT - vehicle beta testers?

As some may know, I've started a new venture over the past year.

MINIMOUNT is a Netbook case that mounts to stuff. Here's where the testers come in. I need some folks with netbooks and vehicles (no not motorcycles) to check out the mounting system installation in various trucks, cars, work vans, etc. It generally bolts to the passenger seat rail and should go on in about 10 minutes. No holes and nothing permanent.

Here's how the deal works. You tell me what vehicle model you want to try it in & which netbook model you own. If you are selected, we'll send you a MINIMOUNT case and mounting kit to test. You take some snazzy pictures of the install process, give it a good go and write a simple one page report on how it all worked out.

Then you have a choice. Send it all back, and we'll give you $50. Or, keep the MINIMOUNT case and return (or buy) the mounting kit. Go ahead and post your interest here, or you can send a PM if you want to, and I'll get back to you. I probably won't even look back here until Monday with the holiday and all. No mad rush. Check out the web site to decide if you even like the idea.

Here's a photo of the mount in my wife's Mini:

That would be great, but we're currently not shipping outside USA. Sorry about that. Thanks for the offer.

We're still looking for a few more takers. Most interested in pickups and work trucks of all kinds

cheers,

I'd love to try it in my F250 but I don't think my 17" Toshiba qualifies as a "net book"

Sounds great! I'll send you a PM. Need to know the model number on your Acer Aspire.

Same deal. Sounds great. Need the model number. Sounds like a Mini 10, but need to confirm and we'll be in touch via PM.

For shur, for shur. Lots of room for passengers with the MINIMOUNT. Since the arm moves around and articulates easily, it can be instantly positioned so the passenger can use it to. That's better anyhow. Using Netbook while driving no bueno.

How you doin'?

Family is doing great; eating me out of house and home. What else is new.. We added a big ole dog to require even more groceries.

So yes, Disco and Mini go froading! I'm on it.

Charlie is taking one of my boxes, in a support vehicle, to the Dakar in a few weeks. I do have a setup worked out for extreme conditions. The best arrangement is to use SSD, because those netbook hard drives you know, have got to be, the cheapest available. Which Acer model do you have?

(D250 Coming Soon!)
