You can get 12/24V supplies as well - for boats,cars,RVs etc.

In a review I read some years ago, one really unlucky customer ended up
with one and had one hell of a time trying to get the supplier to 
replace it.  And yes they shipped him a 240V mains lead!

I have never seen one myself - we have the lappie for hols, and if we
planned to install a PC into the RV (probably to replace the aging
distribution/power management system) I would either (get someone to) 
chop up a lappie or use a low power embedded fanless doofus.
