For HRPT image capturing and satellite tracking I use a standard "el cheapo" notebook computer with a 633MHz Celeron processor and 192 Mbyte RAM.
Since I own an Alblas decoder, I use his HRPT.EXE program in a DOS-window in Windows ME. In the same window I run concurrently InstantTrack for antenna tracking ( see my Rotor-Page ).

See my notebook computer during image acquisition and satellite tracking:

Postprocessing is done on a Desktop PC equipped with an AMD Duron Processor 1GHz and 512 Mbyte RAM with David Taylor's HRPT Reader for HRPT images and GeoSatSignal for HRImages. Some picture correction and enhancment I do with JASC Paintshop Pro V7.0
