Hey, Any comments from anyone that uses an old laptop as a portable dvd player? My and my fiancee are driving on a cross country trip in June and have been looking at portable dvd players for in the car/tent/hotel/etc. She'd also be using it at work. We weren't happy with the image quality on the cheapest (Mintek, Initial, etc). We liked the Toshibas and Panasonics (and boy the 10" Samsung was beautiful), but there's a definite price premium. A little internet hunting finds the 7" Toshibas in the mid $200s. But I've really been considering an older laptop instead. I can find some decent Pentium II 266-366ish (IBM Thinkpads 600E, Compaq Armada 7800, etc) laptops for about the same price as the decent 7" DVD players - and they have 12-14" screens (plus I could play Super Nintendo, oldschool games, etc on it). Any thoughts on going with a cheap, older, laptop instead? A new laptop deal ($700ish) is way out of budget after setting up my FP setup (Infocus X1). Is 300mhz enough for smooth DVD playback? I'm willing to hack up the OS a little if need be to save resources.
