    @OVTune

    I emailed y'all about running your tune with 5.29s and your response was that it works perfectly and there are no issues.
    I then had 2 people in the next 5 days message me on instagram, asking if I was running 5.29s with OVtune...
    They expressed issues with a "Speed governor" and shared that the OV team is aware of this.


    Can you provide some clarification here?

    I'm still partial to the Lenovo T430 or T420 linked below. Those Celeron processors are painfully slow and with only 2g of ram you're gonna have a bad time. They will probably work, but it wont be fun. 32Gb SSD is also going to be tight on space to keep windows up to date.

    No! As @lapoltba reminded me, I completely forgot about that aspect. Sorry.

    Sorry, didn't realize I was making a big fuss?

    Yes there are more invisible means, I agree.

    I hope at some point the OV team has the bandwidth to implement those, that's all.

    I'd say yes? I'm not saying to not wish for more, but understand that there are costs associated. Also, older OVT folks are still (stuck?) using the dongle for security. There was no free upgrade (downgrade?) when the new licensing system rolled out.

    RE: laptops

    I won't go the super-cheap option that is dedicated ONLY to the tune.

    Even if it's just a small one to keep in the truck, I'm sure i'll end up using it for far more than just tuning.
    So I'm thinking minimum 8gb ram, and decent amount of space.

    Costco has some really good options under 500 bucks, so I'll probably go that route.

    That's the thing I am looking for ONLY using it for the tune. I do not want to spend more than $200 for it. Any ideas on that would be ideal.

    I use Macs for EVERYTHING else.

    I got this off Amazon for $189.00. It works just fine as a dedicated tuning laptop.

    In the same camp. This is probably an obvious statement, but I'd check Craigslist. I ended up finding an older Acer Iconia Tab for $25. By all accounts its a garbage device but it runs Win7 and runs the OVtune kit just fine.

    Craigslist in my area has a bunch of decent Lenovo T### options under 200 bucks, but buyer beware of course.

    I wouldn't want to keep windows current with 2gb of ram.

    Cheapest options I can find on Amazon here:
    https://smile.amazon.com/ASUS-Ultra...ows+10+laptop&qid=1561050656&s=gateway&sr=8-7
    https://smile.amazon.com/CHUWI-Hero...ows+10+laptop&qid=1561050656&s=gateway&sr=8-8

    But to run windows for longer than 4-5 years, I wouldn't recommend those.

    No, but I am dongless in my tuning so I only need the one USB. It looks like that exact laptop isn't listed at the moment, but if you stick with those specs, you can find a comparably priced unit.
