Should be just fine.

Beefier processor and more RAM than what I use so I would guess it wouldn’t be a problem.

Thank you. I’m considering picking up a touchscreen, machining my own case, and build a home bro brew Surface Pro.

Can’t wait to get started. Unfortunely it going to take three weeks for my LattePanda baord to reach me here in the U.S.

You can pick up an 8 inch surface pro 2 tablet for like $200 used, very reliable and if you get the 256G or 512G version, the have 8G, pair that with the i5 inside and touch screen and it’s a great cnc pc. I happen to have a few from past stuff and use them on my laser and have one set up for my Nomad, LOVE them!

Since the panda uses the celeron processor, I wouldn’t recommend it, windows will chew it up in a second.
