    Good morning all,
    Need advice from you pros.
    Thinking about getting the 4gb 64gb
    Basically for keeping record of my stamp collection software that only runs on windows and a baseball card collection program again that only runs on windows. Both are basically excel programs just beefed up.
    I have a full time laptop with windows but would like to have something lighter to take with me when I am out and about.
    Will this machine be fast enough? I plan on using a micro sd card for storage.
    Thanks
    jason

    Fast enough?

    I don't know anything about that software. How does it run on the lowest spec PC you have and what is it? With some point of reference I could make a SWAG (Scientific Wild Ass Guess). :D

    Well I have a windows laptop with a i7 and 8gb of ram...needless to say it has no issues. I would guess that these programs would barely task the go as they are pretty simple programs. Its not like I'm editing movies or anything. I went to Best buy to play with one and I opened many programs and it seemed to handle them well enough.
