Computer to run Mach4/Mach3
« on: June 19, 2018, 10:05:00 AM »
Just saw this in my email.
Really inexpensive way to have a dedicated computer just for your machine.

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

Hi,
that's really good value....

A new PC with Windows 10 preinstalled (4G/64G):

The only problem with the lattepanda is that it is windows 10 home. You want Win 10 Pro to be able to turn off all the updates, especially if you have it connected to the 'net.

Also on the one I have posted you can even add a half height p-port card if you need the p-port.

Hi,
yes I notice that the OS variant has changed. as of a month or so ago the LattePanda was advertised as
being shipped with Window 10 Enterprise, the Enterprise variant allowed you to turn off updates.

I am not interested any more in a parallel port, of no use whatever with Windows 10. I do like the built
in Arduino though.

Hi,
it would appear that the Enterprise version of the LattePanda 4G/64G is still available:
