Just get a long piece of double-side velcro strap, 1". No problem. One strap around the Mini and the headrest at about the level of the Mini's hinge. Then if you're paranoid, thread a strap between the upper and lower sections, run it between the hinges, and suspend the body of the Mini from the headrest or the seat. If you care has fabric seats, you could do all of this with a few feet of hook-side velcro.
Biggest problem is the Mini's hinge allows limited opening of the Mini.
BETTER solution would be to get a small 9" or 10" screen that accepts VGA input and can run off of DC from an accessory power jack. Then you keep the Mini up front and run a VGA cable back to an external screen that can be more solidly attached to a seatback.
Here are a couple ideas culled from 5sec of google use:

This looks nice, but it has inputs designed for red/white/yellow so you'll need a converter:

Price is right, but inputs are wrong:

As "jermz" says....Get a portable DVD Player case.
Here's what one of the case logic bags slooks like.
With this style the screen angle isn't an issue at all.
Other companys likely make them too.
P.S. they make good carrying cases too. Check the thread here:http://mydellmini.com/forum/dell-min...st=0&sk=t&sd=a for some photos of them.

I bought a pair of those from BESTBUY in the Portable DVD section for $25 each
It works fine but is either tough to type on or to watch but not both.
Worth it as it makes a REAL NICE CASE TOO!
