INTEL HD Graphics 620

#1
Something for the hardware gurus: I am lookoîng around for a little 2 in 1 (labtop / tablet) for basic development work, when out of the office. Caspar would need to run, so that something is visible, but it does not need to be "production ready" Is there a chance that this machine https://www.asus.com/ch-de/2-in-1-PCs/A ... ro-T304UA/ will work for this? It has an i7 with a 620 Intel GPU that claims to support OpenGL 4.5.

Seems like a nice little machine, but it is a u-series processor, so maybe you will have to turn back the channel resolution a little. I've found that once you don't need production quality / reliability CasparCG will run on practically anything (including 8 year old core i3's).

Keep in mind though that CasparCG isn't super sufficient with hardware resources, so the expected battery life might drop a few hours during continuous use.

All in all, I'd say there is good chance this machine will work for you.

No and no :) No it does not support Thunderbolt, and no, BMD does not support USB 3 AFAIK. The idea of the system is to work on trains (or planes) when no space is available. So that's why I said it does not need to be "production ready". It's probably enough if the screen consumer runs in SD, as I want to do client programming on it and so Caspar is only needed to see, if anything comes out on the other end :)

I used to do that with a Chromebook that I flashed a Linux install on.
