    How much computer do I need?
    I am about to donate a bunch of old computers to the local Hi-School. If it does not take a lot of computing power to run this new remote controle equipment I may keep one.

    You might clue us in as to what you want to use this computer for.

    I thought you needed a computer hooked up with the remote controled engines. To program the running so that you would not get colisions and the like.

    Hi Goat, If you are talking about DCC you don't need a computer to control the trains, its all built in,processor,decoder and etc.

    That is exactly what I needed to know. Got it bookmarked.
    I guess I will keep a P350.
    Thanks again.
