    I have a Mac too. I just used bootcamp to run Windows 10 on my Mac, super simple. :)
    No use in waiting for the handheld when you could be tuned now! I’m sure it’s cheaper this way too.

    My Mac is 11 years old and limited to 10.6.8. Not sure if I can run windows 10 on the boot camp

    There have been many good suggestions for cheap tuning computers mentioned in this thread. At the bottom of the page there is a banner of "Products Discussed" that you can find most of them in.

    I have suggested the Lenovo T430 to several people. I own two of these (not from this seller) that I use regularly and are more than adequate. There are of course other cheaper options.

    Windows 7 or 8 will work. I run Win 8 on a 2010 MacBook Pro via Bootcamp.

    Thanks for the tip. Since I’ll only be using a Windows laptop for this tune how much memory do you think the tune would take?

    The tune and software amounts to almost nothing. Majority of space is windows. All the tunes and software is under 100 MB

    True, I was just correcting previous poster. If you don’t update to Mojave you can still run win 7, 8 8.1

    I run bootcamp for work, have some software that is needed on windows but I usually re-image the computer about once a year so my fear is that would cause me to loose the registry based keys.

    So, in an attempt to be efficient with my time today and after reading above, I figured I would disconnect the negative lead to my battery and let it sit in the parking lot while I went into the store. I didn't do this measure when I first downloaded the 1.05 tune about 600 miles ago.

    Dummy me found out that once the battery is disconnected you can't lock the doors with the fob.

    No problem says I, that's why they give you this key so cleverly disguised in the fob !

    Nay, Nay.... The key didn't work as a manual key in the lock as suspected !
    I couldn't lock the doors with the key while the battery was disconnected !
    Does this lead one to deduce that if your battery dies while parked and locked you can't get in with the key ?? :eek:

    That thought didn't cross my mind until I was hooked back up and headed down the road....
    10 minutes easily passed while I went through these mental gyrations.... But,
    Now I gotta take it apart again to test the theory... Anyone here futzed with this ?

    Prologue: My truck has been running pretty good on 1.05 / 87 and I'm in warm country.
    Although I still of course want more, I have no complaints.

    Can't say for certain if the disconnect thing did anything for me, although driving the truck to the store prior to disconnect it said 18.4 (avg tank mpg) and on the way home after re-connect it said 22.6 (avg tank mpg) !

    Jeesh.... I dunno ? Feels good anyway ~~~

    I use ASUS E203M 32 GB SSD. Picked it up for $100 + change. Adequate and fits in to the glove compartment (tight) and into the back packet of the passanger's seat.

    If you disconnect both battery cables and hold together for 30 seconds it will drain all residual stored power from all electrical components. Then just reconnect and go. Takes 2 mins or less.
