        The TunerStudio program is a simple Java program. Doesn't take much horsepower to run. I've asked for a cheap netbook for my birthday or Christmas to use on the car and travel a bit lighter. If I don't get one I'll buy one.
        Escaped on a technicality.

          current netbooks are way the hell hotter than what you need. Seem like what you are really getting is a new battery... the battery for my old Toshiba is about the same price as a new netbook and they'll stomp on it from a performance standpoint.

          The only thing I would sweat is USB <=> Com port , and I think there are adapters for that (older boards)

            I use a mini 9 for datalogging with my Mongoose and your 10 has a lot more beans, so it should be perfect.

              Most any notebook or laptop has the resources to run the software. It will be the USB to serial connection that might be a problem as posted above. Some have no problem, I've never gotten an adapter to work properly.
