Neat little Quad-cord 11.6 inch touch screen computer, dirt cheap.

I have the older 10 inch one and it will work with SSDR, but I haven't spent much time with it. If anybody is using this newer one, please let us know how well it works.

Jerry, I think the only real difference is screen size. I too have the 10" version. It runs SSDR ok, with 1 panfall open. Haven't tried two. And it runs my test program which currently has one panadapter, but no waterfall.(yet) I ran mine all day a couple of Sundays ago with my program and using William's software and a CMD Microcontroller.(USB) That worked good too.

I think the Nextbooks would not handle SSDR well over a long period of time. But, then again, for the price and used sparingly, they would do ok.

I haven't used this particular notebook but I have used a version of this processor (1.3ghz with 2 ghz memory) and it ran SSDR and skimmer or ssdr with 2 panadapters no problemo as long as you want.  If you open a bunch of programs you can run it out of resources but when my main computer went down in the shack this little computer kept me on the air
