That is good to know! Not planning on using a laptop, but if it comes to it, is nice to know there is an option.

I stand corrected!

Best regards,

As I was reading the MACH3 software website, they specifically tell us a laptop will not work because of how the OS is always lagging (don't understand why it has to be like that, BTW). It was my impression that the MACH3 software will first check whether the computer is a laptop or desktop and if it is a laptop, it will not work.

Gee, I guess I must live in the twilight zone - I've been running my
Sherline CNC mill for three years on an old Dell 1 GHz Pentium 3
laptop running Windows XP...

And yes, I run Mach3.

Later,
Jon
