    From the Race Studio manual

    Compatibility between Race Studio 2 and operative systems
    Race Studio 2 has been developed to guarantee the maximum working reliability and its correct working has been tested with the following operative systems: Microsoft Windows XP Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Widows 7.

    All operative systems (Linux, Unix, Macintosh®) not indicated in this tutorial are to be considered not supported by this application.
    For any problem it is suggested to check http://www.aim-sportline.com website to verify if any recent news has been issued and, if not, to contact the technical support that can be found in home page at http://www.aim-sportline.com.

    I’m sure the Acer would work just fine.

    Why not just bootcamp the macbook?
    Otherwise the most basic laptop will work fine. I used a P1 233Mhz laptop for a long time running Windows 2000.

    Will it work with Windows 8.1 ?

    There’s a Toshiba at Walmart for $328.

    A friend of mine is running Race Studio and GPS Manager both on Windows 8. He hasn’t had any problems.

    FWIW, I run Race Studio using Windows 8.1 on my bootcamp’d Macbook.  Zero issues at all

    2009 called and what its bootcamp back.  I run race studio on my Macbook Pro using VmWare.  Runs perfectly.  The only downside is that you cant format or update DataKeys using virtualization software..  At least I havent figured it out
