I just did a clean install of windows 10 to get rid of most of the background processes that have built up over the years. This is what I plan on running hyperspin on. I just want to make sure it is enough horsepower to run supermodel (model 3 emulator) and model 2 emulator. I will keep everything on an external HDD so I don't run into storage issues., I have a modern gaming computer with a desktop i7 and GTX 980ti Strix as well but am hesitant to run things on there that might have bugs or trojans buried in them so I like the idea of my laptop being a dedicated hyperspin machine.
The laptop has a turbo feature that can boost the processor up to 3 GHz I believe.
