I'm looking to get a netbook to run AstroArt or Maxim DL for image capture using my DSLR (I already use BackyardEOS, but will use AA or Maxim with my DSLR as I gear up towards a mono CCD). Later I will use it to run PEMpro and guide my mount through PHD and the ASCOM driver. Do you think I am being too ambitious with a Netbook here? Would this overload the limited multitasking capabilities of a netbook? Also it would help me to run Stellarium from time-to-time, but I'm not sure of the graphics capabilities and whether I should be looking for a particular feature. It would be really great if people using a Netbook could list the RAM, Processor, graphics specs, they are using and what software they run on it. If they could indicate which software they run simultaneously that would awesome? Thanks Tim
I've decided i'm going to look into making a imaging netbook my next purchase. I was going to go for a guiding set up next and i probably will do before Christmas but it makes more sense to get the netbook first. I liked the sound of the Samsung Chromebook but i dont think they are suitable at all unfortunately. I've read people throwing the words Acer and Dell around but have very limited knowledge when it comes to PCs ect. Besides, the threads i was reading were from a couple years back. So whats the best netbook to get nowadays? I can spend around £150-200. Obviously its for imaging so it will be running at least PHD and Backyard EOS, probably Stellarium. Not sure what others as i'm not there yet!
