I am just wondering if a Aspire 5100 could handle sdr #? And the rtl sdr I am talking about is the 3rd version. I am just wondering if it will lag or something because I know the laptop has a bad processor.
Yes I know maybe not the right forum but I couldn’t find any forum about sdr#.

Specs
Amd Turion 38 mk.
4 gb ram
160 gb hdd.
Windows 7 64 bit

I Googled Amd Turion 38 mk, and it appears that it's only 1 core. So I think it would be quite slow. Generally at least a 2-core processor is recommended.
