Ever since I got them, first the CNC laser, then the CNC router have lived in my office. I sited them there as I didn’t have a computer in my workshop.
The office isn’t really a suitable location for these machines, especially the router as this machine makes a lot of dust.
I’ve finally invested in a cheap old laptop. It was cheap because it is old, running Windows 7 (I wouldn’t want anything later than Windows 7), and has a duff battery. Replacement laptop batteries are quite expensive and it is probably the duff battery more than anything else that kept the price low of this laptop. I’m not fussed about the battery though as the laptop can sit on a permanent supply in my workshop.
