I'm looking to buy a low cost PC which will be used mainly as a testing device for high speed memory cards such as SD and Compact Flash. It should have built in USB 3.0 port that I can plug an external reader into, or I could theoretically add a USB 3 or even a dedicated multicard reader via pci etc...
A laptop can work also but I'm trying to keep costs down to a minimum for this device.
My goal is to eliminate any and all bottle neck limitations for testing the top speed of the cards.
Please let me know if any of you have a solution that might work.
Some of the big online retailers have specials from Lenovo and HP that range from $200-300, I'm just not sure how to tell if the USB 3.0 ports that are built in, may be slower than if I build my own PC with an i3 or i5 processor.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
