Yeah, it's been done before, and many times. I had one years ago in my EL.

i have a 300w dc-ac converter to run power to the laptop and lcd screen is 7" lilliput touch screen with usb interface. i couldnt find a MOTORIZED lcd touch screen by itself without all the dvd and extra wank so just got normal touch screen and ill chop my dash and put it up near centre air con vents. and running sound through ai-net cable into my stereo setup
