not sure mate, you could hack the intergrated the screen and get it to display the video feed from the laptop, the touchscreen controller would have to be hacked as well to connect to the usb port the cutom drivers would possibly be needed to get it to work.

a lot of work mate, youd be better ripping out the touchscreen and fitting a touchscreen moniter screen in its place. yip youd lose the standard software etc from saab but you would have a functioning pc in the car. with proper setup you can have something better than was orginally there.

ive built a pc and fitted a touchscreen in place the standard radio cage. took me around 3 months of messing about in the house and a day of fitting
have a look, basically if you could get the laptop to start with the ignition and switch off with it all youd need is to connect the moniter to the external moniter port and touchscreen into the USB

yup good luck with that.
or you can get an external cd drive and have that up front - most car front ends will auto play then. and dab radio addons are also avalible
