Laptop on a budget was created by sgtdills
I ordered the Standard Kit from autonerdz this week, with the 4425 scope. My question is what is everyone using computer wise to run the scope? I'm ballin on a budget and with it being used in the shop I wouldn't want to use a high dollar computer. Any input would be awesome, thanks in advance everyone.

Any PC / Laptop built for windows 7, or later, will work just fine. The system requirements for the software are minimal.

HP or Asus or Acer or Lenovo do some very decent Notebooks and laptops at a very good price. I currently use an HP Stream 4GB with a Celeron Processor and a very big hard disk

Look for a decent sized hard disc --- not a small hard disc + cloud storage thisis especially important as Windows 10 eats hard disk space for backups and hard disks are now usually soldered to the motherboard and cant be upgraded. I would regard a 64gb SSD hard disk as a minimum.
Don't go for a large screen size as you will want to use inside the car.
For working outside you might also want to extend your internet wifi --- I use networking over mains wifi access point.
