    My little acer laptop finally bit the dust. Won't sign on to wireless anymore , old windows xp.
    My question is what's a CHEAP device I can use for upgrading the phantom ? I have iPads and iPhones. I only use my laptop for the phantom or updating my motorcycle fuel injection. Maybe to back up my iPhone.
    It goes months on end just sitting collecting dust.

    Craigslist laptop may not hurt. I would recommend something newer that has windows 7. That would be my first stop, can usually find a good deal.

    Get a second hand netbook with XP. Cheap and works great, better than all 3 of my Macs which can't even run Phantom or Naza assistant without crashing.

    I found a refurbished one on eBay. Windows xp isn't supported anymore. Just got a notice a couple of weeks ago.
