What mounting should I use for my Aspire One?

Hey Daniel, welcome to the forums!

I suspect most of us start with a laptop sitting at a passenger seat. The safety conscious ones will even attempt to use a seat belt on their laptops. I know, I've done the exact same thing in the past. However, the whole mobile computing experience is so much much better with a proper vehicle mount.

If you google for "laptop vehicle mount" you will find several manufacturers of these products. I'm actually not exactly sure if there is something designed specifically for Aspire One. RAM_Mount_Expert may have an answer for you, and hopefully he will notice this thread. If not, try to ask him in his thread http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/1089-opinions-laptop-mounting-systems-vehicles.

There are actually several people here at Laptop GPS World who use Aspire One, too. I wonder what mounting solutions they use.

How about something real simple?

Wide, high holding power industrial grade velcro.

Attach it on top of the dash.

As long as you can mount it in a place where you can see it without it completely blocking your view of part of the road.

RAM should create some appropriate mounts for these tiny laptops. These netbooks sell well. Several members have already bought one. I think the universal laptop mount by RAM Mount is too big for them.

Or plug it in.

... and if you don't have a charger that plugs into your car's accessory outlet, perhaps the least expensive solution is to buy a power inverter. The following may be an interesting reading for you: http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/726-choosing-power-inverter-your-laptop
