High end gaming laptop/desktop power inverter

I'm not surprised others here are gaming, but didn't expect this thread to have so much discussion. I looked at your link to Asus laptops; not my first time at the site. I think a sager/clevo laptop is my dream laptop because you can get up to 880m sli. Not certain yet if I will buy my dream laptop (9377, or 9570 with desktop cpu) , or something cheaper. I'm considering the 880m sli because of star citizen, and hoping sli will work on oculus rift (very Cool looking virtual reality, check it out if you haven't seen it. I don't think this is a repeat of the 90s failure I've heard about)

I play dota and starcraft right now (not on the truck yet). I want to play elite dangerous and star citizen, and really want the oculus rift when it comes out. My truck doesn't have an app, so I'm thinking a 880m sli laptop would be better than a desktop for now.

Yeah I don't bother with truck stop Internet. I pay a fortune for 30 gigs on verizon instead.

High end gaming laptop/desktop power inverter

I am a gamer and want to buy a high end laptop or desktop to use in the truck. (roughly 3 grand).

One concern is powering either. The laptop of my dreams has a 300 watt power supply. Can I use an inverter plugged in a cigarette lighter to power that? I've heard the fuse has a limit. If not, how much roughly to get someone to install a hard wired inverter?

If I bought a desktop it might use up to 750 watts. So I'm assuming I would probably need a hard wired inverter.

Anyone know how long the truck could run a 300 Watt laptop with engine off?

Broken clutch, can i move?

If i do try to start in gear with the load; is that going to damage the truck? Owner of the truck wants me to move it that way to save a tow charge if they won't let me stay here long enough (they probably won't, but haven't noticed me yet... four pumps, service area on i95).

My clutch made a clang sound and went to the floor. i might want to move the truck a bit (stranded at a pump). The owner of the truck thinks i could start engine in first to move to side of ramp. Will this work with a loaded trailer (44,000)?

Someone will be here to pick up load but not untill tomorrow

I agree with you both; but that trucker friend had me wondering slightly. Unfortunatly my record is pretty bad; I have those 2 incidents and a speeding ticket for 15 over. I merged onto a freeway in oregon and merged with traffic, and immediatly after I got up to speed a cop clocked me (down a hill). I knew about the truck speed limit but didnt realize how fast I was going as I was trying to merge safely with the cars behind me.

Im starting to look for a company that can hire me despite that dismal record. If not I'll keep busy and try again later on.

Accidents on application

Hey awesome forum. I have only 2 months experience. Unfortunately I had 2 incidents working. Once I got stuck in a hole I didn't see in the mirror despite looking (I was the third trucker that day to do it.... Evil truck stop). And once I scrapped the skirting on a cement block, which I also filed with the company. My friend in trucking says I shouldn't even admit to these minor infractions on an application.

I worked for the large company CRST International. I think it's best to just admit it, but, what do other truckers think? And is it likely that a company would ever find out? Is it different for a smaller company?

Internet and WiFi on the road

I'm curious what the best mobile hotspot option for a heavy user is. I listen to radio online, videos, etc. I have been leaning towards verizon with 10gb but not sure if that's enough data. Do any unlimited options like virgin mobile offer good enough coverage and speed or should I get verizon? Or I guess I could have a verizon smartphone and other unlimited mifi. Any heavy users with opinions thank you. Love my "series of tubes"

Prozac and trucking for crst

One other question; will it go on my DAC if things don't work out but I'm honest at my physical? I was thinking it might not because I don't think I'm hired until finishing the starter companies school.

Prozac and trucking for crst

I start school this Monday. Have not lied about medications but haven't been asked. Plan to of course let the doctor know; I know they will ask. Is it better for me to ask a recruiter about this (if open weekends) or just explain to the doctor? The medication has no side effects for me, and if I had any depression it was minor, but I don't think my doctor thought I was depressed. I took it to help with anxiety at gatherings / parties.

Prozac and trucking for crst

Hello, my first post. I've decided after a lot of research and time to become an otr trucker with crst (with someone I know). Anyways, I was prescribed prozac about 2 months ago and am worried that this could be a problem with crst. I was having problems with social anxiety, particularly in party settings / family events (lots of family). I don't think I had depression, but if I did it was minor and gone now.

So does anyone know if prozac is generally okay in trucking or better yet, if its alright at crst?

BTW, so far my plan is not to say anything, but I know I will have to tell the doctor for my medical examination. Also curious if I'm going to need a written letter from the DR that prescribed it to me, and if I do, is it okay if I don't have it when I get to school (very soon).

LOVE this forum, and all the research you have done Brett!!!!!
