(We don't believe in laptop based navigation for the simple reason that I use enough Microsoft systems at work to have long since learned there no way in hell am I going to trust our boat to an operating system the Microsoft Kids dreamed up.)

We continue to use it still, our old laptop, because we have the alternatives. I stripped absolutely everything out of it, all programs, photos other than what was absolutely necessry for it to run the chartware and charts. Even the WIFI card is out so it CANNOT connect to anything else, unless I hook up by cable connection.
It became amazingly reliable, not foolproof although no problem since, once that was done.

It will be replaced upon any hint of trouble.
