Info

This is a basic laptop running a relatively clean XP install. It has Audacity installed for recording audio from the audio equipment. It should already have the correct drivers for the USB audio interface. It can access the wi-fi, but if you are recording massive audio files please don't try to upload them. Instead, just bring in a USB flash drive and copy the files off the system to take with you. That way we avoid over-taxing the internet bandwidth. You can use this for other purposes as well, but keep in mind that it is not a very powerful machine. The battery is not in great shape, so it is recommended that you leave the power cord plugged in while in use.
