[amsat-bb] Netbooks

Hi All,
Has anyone used SatPC32 with a netbook computer?  I'd appreciate your comments.  Which netbooks do best?  What ports do netbooks come with?

I just tried SatPC32 on AO-7 with an old Dell Inspiron 3800.  It works well controlling 2 FT-817s in the shack.  When outside, using a charged battery, it was very slow.  I had to restart SatPC32 a couple of times, and, as a result, lost at least 2 QSOs with Europe.  Maybe it's time for a change.

Tnx and 73,
Tony, N2UN
