You can have most androids, and I believe apple phones too, "Auto Rotate" their screen. Flip it in your hands it so the screen is correctly oriented for your HUD reflection when subsequently laid flat, then carefully place it in the panel so it reflects as desired. When laid flat,the phone will wait for a threshold (more than 10 degrees in my experience) of further rotation before changing the screen again - giving you the result you wanted!

I've done it with my Xperia Z Ultra and my Ford Transit EF-LWB - it works!

Does your "portable" LAN rig (including monitor) fit in a rucksack or panniers (bike rack)? Does it have decent h/k speakers and a meaty subwoofer built in for train journeys? Does it boot (and login) in under 30 seconds from power off, less than that from hibernate?

These trade-offs alone, along with the ability to game or perform (I have an Edirol and portable 12V PA) for two hours without the mains, make the NVidia 9700M GTS seem quite impressive, actually!

They're bigger because they contain more useful things...
