Which PC / Tablet to purchase

Devices such as the attached "low-spec" Windows 8.1 tablet will happily run the software. When purchased with OS license for approx AUD$130. Always look for high specification as will give a better responsive environment.

Our system does require the full versions of windows rather than RT or IoT versions that are sometimes used when loading onto a MacBook or mobile device as these were cut down versions of windows. 

BmsSuite has been designed with a minimum screen resolution of WSVGA 1024 × 600 pixels. To connect to the hardware supervisor (PacMon / SiMon) will require a USB 2.0 port. Network access using Wifi will enable remote access and connect the telemetry to cloud logging.
