    machine requirements for universal gcode sender

    I had this old laptop running UGS for my DIY cnc router. Was working good but now I think the video card crapped out as it will not send video to its display or a connected display. So, what are your experiences with what UGS needs to run well?
    I have a separate computer that I do my CAD and CAM on so all it needs to run is UGS and the GRBL IDE and of course JAVA and netbeans.
    Thanks

    It requires a good laptop with a good graphics card. If you are on a budget, and can't spend big, and still want to buy a good laptop with the graphics card, Acer Nitro is a good option. It houses a GTX 16-Series graphics that let you handle visually loaded tasks quite seamlessly.
