Laptop & Software:
1) IBM T30 or Dell D630
FYI, Overt time, hundreds of laptops were tested for compatibility but only 2 laptops are found to work correctly: Dell D630 and IBM T30
IBM T30 has a smaller screen, slower processor and was launched in 2002
D630 has a larger screen, faster processor and was launched in 2007.
Therefore Dell D630 is the better of the 2 to go for.
The Dell D630 can be bought in working condition for around £50. I paid less than £100 for these 2 including postage.
And the software you get will normally be preinstalled onto a laptop or hard drive for you to install into your own laptop. Preinstalled is a lot easier than doing it yourself and will save you 2 or 3 hours of installing and messing around.
2) If you want to use your own laptop, you can get the MB Star software on an external hard drive and run it all through a virtual machine.
