A laptop which has Windows 7 should be fine. I honestly don't understand all the fuss about minimum computer requirements for the Flex 1500. I run mine on an old Itronix Gobook with a 1.7ghz processor and 1gb of RAM running Win XP pro and it works flawlessly.

Your a lucky man if it works with 1,7 GHz ..... Started with my Flex 1k5 with an older AMD 3200+ singlecore 2 GHz (4 GB DDR) and it was impossible to give clean CW with the panadaptor was on. Processor almost works with mor than 50 % for PSDR only !!! Now i have a new AMD FX-4100 Quadcore at home (4 x 3,6 GHz, 8GB DDR3) and all is fine. For portable i use an older Pentium 4 with 3,06 GHz speed. Works also fine with only 1g DDR.

At home Windows 7 ultimate 64 Bit and at the laptop Windows 7 ultimate 32 Bit .... Think the min. requirement is a P4 with > 2 GHz and 2-4 GB Ram. For SSB and Digimodes only a processor < 2 GHz and 1 GB Ram should be work.



Call: DF5WW (Class A) ... OP: Juergen (Joe) .... Rig: Only QRP with Flex 1,5k and 2 x 25 m folded doublet with balance feedline for all bands (under the roof). Also a 10,3 m Quadloop for 10 and 6 ... feeded with ladderline too and also under the roof.
