I'm considering a hack somewhat like the Tatra G4... Put a desktop Mac in a car.
The only hangup is storage. I'm worried that a hard drive based system won't be able to stand up to the road conditions and may suffer physical damage.
Does anyone have any suggestions for shock-proof or shock-resistant storage? High capacity is a definite must. I already thought about flash RAM like CF, but there's not enough capacity there. Would a laptop HD be better suited to use under high acceleration?
What kind of G-forces can a traditional HD withstand? Sustained G-forces and instantaneous G-forces are things to be concerned about. Sustained acceleration would probably never get higher than 2 Gs (I should hope!!! I'm not flying an F-16, anyway, and my Sunfire doesn't have much torque). Instantaneous - that's anyone's guess...
