Yesterday, I added a Dell Inspiron i3050-3000 to my shack, for purposes other than running the Flex 6700. This is a small, inexpensive ($150 from Amazon) box with 2 GB RAM, 32 GB SSD, a 2.41 GHz Celeron running Windows 10.

Just for the heck of it, I loaded SSDR 1.5.1 and it ran a single panadapter display pretty well. I the panadapter for about 10 minutes (as I said, SSDR isn't the reason I added this computer) and didn't notice any video glitches.

Did the same with a Nextbook from Walmart. Quad core Atom proccessor and 2 gigs ram plus 32gigs storage. Runs v1.5.11 ok with single panafall. (WIN10)
Very little noticeable issues. Ran my test program, with panadapter only (no waterfall) and no hickups for hours. Neat little Win10 tablet and fun to play with.
