    What do you use to read USB GS911

    Looking for small netbook or laptop recommendations to carry on the bike to read my GS911. This is USB only, not Bluetooth. What do you carry on your bike?

    I travel with a 10" Acer laptop. I use it for email, web applications, and the GS911 if I need to.

    Thanks guys. I read somewhere that a guy was using a Microsoft Surface tablet. I was hoping someone would chime in with that.

    I use an old macbook. Of course I have to run Windows XP in a virtual machine, but it works just fine. Down the road I may upgrade to a macbook air for a traveling laptop though. Solid state drive, so no moving parts to go bad. Light and easy to use.

    14" Thinkpads - always. Last one was a T-60 that I milked for 6 years. Current one is a T-410 I bought about a year ago. Always all solid state and fast. Takes a lot to break one.
