I am a mac user however i would like to get the least expensive windows laptop that i can to use for AVR programing, AVR Studio, and some other windows only apps..
The only information i could find is at minimum a pentium 2 to support the ISPmk2 and at least windows xp to run avr studio 4. I have also seen recommendations of nothing less than a pentium 4 in general although i have no idea how this compares to other processors. Intel atom, celeron, mobile, or even an AMD processor.
My question is will one of those $350/$400 el-cheap-o laptops fit the bill? I may even go used but again what's the min.. Possibly a stupid question but better safe then sorry.
Thank you for your time,
