I upgraded the new Gigastrand laptop to BETA 2 and it is much improved over the Alpha.04 version installed before. Compared to each other, Alpha.04 felt kind of cobbled together whereas BETA 2 installed seamlessly and performed better out of the box.
Ok, so where does the PC or PoC come in? Well, the wireless card has given out in the laptop and is unable to connect to wireless networks. The system recognizes the wireless card, but it cannot pickup signals reliably. So this laptop will get its first upgrade. Until then, I have to string a network cable from one side of the room to the other (as seen in the pic). We will keep you updated.
