    Most of those Computer Vision HITs have approved now, apart from the last few I did. Wish I could have done more!

    I was using a laptop with an Intel Centrino processor that had originally shipped with Vista but was running Win 7. It was intolerable. There's a Chrome OS called Chromeready that you can install that was very helpful to me while I cobbled together a new desktop computer.

    If you'd like to try Chromeready I think you would find it to be more pleasurable to work with. I was using a 32bit dual core centrino and there's not much chance that you've got weaker hardware than that. I'd be happy to walk you through the installation process if you're interested. It aggravated me to no end how many HITS I missed out on because of struggling hardware.

    Not much better than Win 7 when it comes down to it. I had much better luck with Peppermint before I found out about Chromeready. Peppermint is more flexible in terms of what you can do overall but Chromeready is much better suited for just turking. It's an easier learning curve for new users too.

    I was looking at mini pc's and stick pc's. You can get a Chrome stick for 87$. That's unbelievable.

    The performance they pack into the mini desktop PC's is mind boggling to me as well.

    I made a thread for showing your modest, supercharged, or somewhere in between Turkstation and I want to link it before I go to bed.
