Wanted. Old laptop

Postby kenton » Thu Dec 05, 2019 7:25 am

Hi all,
Just on the offchance does anyone have an old working laptop with a serial port they no longer need. I'm after one to set up an Emerald ecu.
Many thanks

Hi K,

Have you tried an RS232 (serial) to USB cable? You need to be careful where you get it from as some won't work. I got mine from trigger wheels. I'd imagine Emerald will sell them too.
Yes I've been drinking, what of it!!

Thanks Chris, yes that would be an option if I had a laptop however I still use a desktop and I'm not going to relocate it to the garage.

Ahh in that case get yourself an old Thinkpad from eBay. That's what I'm using only cost about £40 and I don't care if it gets damaged. You can also get a 12v power supply so you can have it powered in car. Useful for tuning on the go. It's what I was using on the Mega Tour.
