I am trying to source a PC suitable for operating the above in workshop.
Will a basic PC suffice ? or do I need a SATA drive ?

The PC requirements are as follows:

Processor: 500 MHz Pentium II processor, or equivalent
Memory: 256 MB (XP) / 1 GB (Vista) minimum
Disk space: 300 MB minimum
Operating system: 32 bit Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or Vista
Ports: USB 1.1 compliant port (USB 2.0 recommended)

See http://www.picoauto.com/automotive-kit.html

A SATA drive is not required.

Hope this helps

PC Requirements

The Autonerdz recommendations are a bit higher assuming you will be using PicoScope 6 Automotive with this:

We suggest 1GHz processor or faster.

We have found 256MB RAM to be inadequate. We recommend 1GB for XP and 2GB for Vista minimum.

USB 2.0 is required to utilize the PicoScope 6 high speed streaming capabilities. USB 1.1 will fall down attempting this task.

Just want to be sure you get one that will be up to the task so you can make full use of the most powerful automotive scope on the planet. 8)
