Re: [linrad] Laptop

I haven't succeed in getting linrad running but I am working on it. Just checked the spec of my Dell Inspiron 8000 it does have a stereo line-in port and the sound card is an ESS Technology Maestro 3i - 16 bits. The video controller is given as ATI Mobility M4 8 Meg memory is standard, 32 Meg max.

How much video memory and RAM is considered desirable for linrad?

Talk to the folks at www.powernotebook.com  I have just been through
this with them so they are well versed.

I decided to go with a laptop suited for other tasks and without stereo
inputs -- will be using a Creative MP3+ USB device instead.

 You probably will have to look for an older model like my old IBM TP390. But
 the processors of those machines in general are limited to around 300 MHz.
 The only other solution will be a laptop with an external ( pcmcia or USB)
