My laptop is dead; i5 HP 17". The family is tired of me borrowing theirs. After using Tower for the last several weeks and discovering "issues", I decided to go back to lugging around a laptop or making a portable version GCS so I can use Mission Planner, especially since the latest beta release featuring EKF and VIBE graphs.
This will be a Windows based laptop.
1) Is a touch screen a practical feature?
2) What is the lowest "horsepower" cpu (AMD, Intel) that gives good performance?
