Sorry if I'm thread jacking, but has anyone had good experiences with buying refurbished laptops. They are all over ebay for very cheap. The current HP i have is a piece of shit and over heats in like 20 min.

I've heard a lot of good things about the Thinkpads.

Hands down, get a netbook. They are like $300 max, and will do everything you need. They are small though, so watching lots of guages might not work so well. And like someone mentioned, with the Atom processor, you will have a shitload of battery life. I have been thinking about getting one for my car to just keep in there all the time and use as a dash display, because they are small and cheap.

My opinion would be to go with either any netbook type laptop you can find that is windows based, or a cheap dell. Stay away from ebay and all that junk.. dell atleast keeps their drivers posted on the web, so if shit ever hits the fan, the dell can be reinstalled easily.

for the price though, i would hands down go with a brand new netbook.. its a new computer for the price of a used peice of junk on ebay.

something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-553-_-Product

I've thought about the netbooks but they seem like they might be a pita for tuning. Wonder if Best buy will let me load BRE or Crome onto a floor model to try it out.

I think you definitely have a point with the netbook being a minor pain. The screen is SOO small it is a little crazy. What you can do is figure out what the resolution of the netbook is in pixels, and then attempt to adjust your normal monitor to that size, or as close as you can get, and then start up your choice of application and see how it behaves. the one i linked above was 1024x 600, which is a weird combo to start with, and the 600 part may just be a PITA to deal with.

but try it out.. I would mainly use it for collecting log data to process later on a normal computer, so your mileage may vary.

For normal use I'm sure its fine. I know there would be times though were I would curse it for the tiny screen. Having 2 maps up at once for instance would be very difficult.

Yes they can. I have the Asus Eee 1000HE netbook with a 128GB HDD (modded myself) and I get about 8 and a half hours out of the Eee pc.

That's a shame your HP took a shit. Those are nice machines...in fact i'm on one now! But i would suggest getting another HP if the funds can support it. Otherwise, the netbook/ebook sounds like a solid idea.

With my old HP, the specs were
-AMD AthlonXP-M 2800+ 2.13 GHz
-512MB DDR SDRAM
-serial port (perfect for the lc-1)

The thing ran pretty good most of the time, but when it would get really hot, it would start lagging really2x badly.

I mite look into those netbooks but has anyone ever ran our honda tuning software on these netbooks? datalogging and real-time tuning?

JD uses a Thinkpad
Blundar uses a Thinkpad
I bought a Thinkpad, and I don't know Jack Shit about tuning!

See the trend?
