  17. Laptop speed and RAM needed for REW processing

    REW Forum
    Instead of messing around with my wife's 2 year old Toshiba Laptop which is running Vista SP2, I am thinking of using an "old" laptop that I inherited from my nephew . It is not very fast and has only 512RAM running Win XP Pro. Will this be sufficient for running REW ? TKs
