Many thanks for the replies. I’ve been searching for a new gigging computer for quite some time, as past threads indicate. In my never ending endeavor to reduce gear, gear size and weight, this has been the one purchase I keep putting off.
As far as weight, laptops are not heavy anymore, but I will probably mount a small separate monitor, as mounting the full laptop either restricts audience views, or requires an extra stand. I’ve also been looking at forum member provided websites for used small form factor desktops, which would be easier to self modify, and mount to key stand.
Since the discussions about NUCs and Mini PCs some time ago, I was wondering about personal experiences. Everything so far has been positive, and that’s good to know.
