RespeQt on a small, low priced netbook?

Recommended Posts

My Windows 10 and 130XE computers arent very close together. It would be a major undertaking to rearrange my computer lab. I was thinking it may be easier to get a small (used?) netbook computer dedicated to running RespeQt. It wouldnt need a lot of RAM or storage space.

 

Any thoughts? Bad idea? Good idea?

I run RespeQt on Raspberry Pi boards so any “real” laptop will be fine.

I use 10 year old small laptops for the task don't think there should be an issue

I have used an old Asus eeePC 904ha netbook; 2gb ram, running 32 bit XP Home Edition and respeqt. It runs with no issues.

You won't need a lot of horsepower to run it and a netbook fits just fine on top of a 1050 floppy drive. :thumbsup:

I tried Windows 10 32-bit on a 1GB Lenovo netbook, Serving RespeQt. The system was overall sluggish, but it worked just fine.

I also have used an ASUS eeePC with Win7 to run APE. I've yet to find a Windows combo that APE didn't like. I also like RespeQt, but have much less experience with it. I especially like the support for Happy and Archivers!

Running RespeQT in a Raspberry PI 2 with Lotharek Sio2PC.

 

It mostly works, sometimes I got write timeouts when running other apps, like opening a browser.

In the meanwhile 850 emulation is ready, would it be possible to make it ignore R: requests? so it can be ran at the same time as tcpser?

 

Regards and thanks.

I think XP32 would run faster for you than W10.

I agree, as that's what it came with originally. It illustrates that a machine underpowered for W10 will still actually run RespeQt.
