      Would a netbook with 1 GB of memory work? Funny, but I gave a PC laptop to my son and one to my ex before I moved to Oregon. I only have a macbook and now I need a PC. I can get a netwook for a little money. What do you think?

        It would, but netbooks have small screens and looking at a matrix of
        several options does not work well on small screens. For the money, I
        would look at a used notebook. I say this as someone who owns and has
        used both for scanner programming.

          They work. I have used one the past Coue of years. I do however use a seperate screen at home. I have it connected to a 20" LCD tv that has all kinds of inputs on it and it only cost around a hundred bucks. Have the same screen for my security system too. And once again got them from TigerDirect. Seem to get a lot of things there.

            For the price of a Netbook, you can run a virtual machine on your Mac. There are several VM's available, some free. Install Windows on your Mac.

            I use Win7 and VMware Fusion. The drivers for the programming cable even have Mac versions.

            It's the best of both worlds.
