Circles What computer is the best to run HS software?

I have looked at the Troller and Im on the fence about what to get Troller or Software. What PC or Mini PC or other device would be best for the software?

You're likely to get a wide range of answers, but the short answer is Windows or Linux and your comfort level. Personally, I would recommend any of the Trollers since they are built to run with very little administration (if any).

One that works and is stable that you are personally familiar with. Homeseer has a very small footprint and low resource requirements

I went with an I5 laptop. It doesnt take too much power to run and wasnt too expensive.
