Re: [linrad] Laptop

Hello the net:

I am agonizing over a similar issue.

Agonizing because I do not want to throw away money and I do not want to find
that I have taken the steepest learning curve.

I see merit to the external soundblaster EXTIGY box on the USB V2
24 bit sampling
possibly better EMi/RFI immunity/susceptibility with the external box

Use the external multichannel A/d for inputs and the motherboard soundcard for outputs (2CH), d/a.

Hi All,

I would like to have a laptop on which I could run Linrad.
When I ask the salesmen at the different companies selling these
things, none of them has any idea at all whether there
are drive routines available for Linux:(

Is there anyone on the list who knows of a laptop that can
sample at least 2 channels 16 bit at 48 kHz while running
full duplex and which is supported by OSS or ALSA and that also works with svgalib. The processor should be a PentiumIV 1GHz or better. AMD Athlon or something else of similar speed would be fine.
