I agree with merc-600 c4/5 is the better choice, and you can use any laptop I use a hp elite book for example.
The only thing I could not get to work is hhtwin on win 64 bit.
Can anybody confirm that it works on 64bit without using a virtual mashine?

if you have a well equipped indoor garage, money and time is no issue, and you can spend the time to learn the laptop systems, by all means get one.
but in my case, the old Snap On MT2500 is all I needed to diagnose and dial in my M120 W140.
it gives you all the necessary live data needed on the engine, mainly the fuel injection LH systems and ignition systems for both sides of the engine (4 modules, 2 each), in addition to the base diagnostic module. a total of 5 modules.
it cost $300 used and is much more portable and compact, and simple roller selector, and yes/no buttons control. 3 inputs. no keyboard. not having a keyboard is better.

Yes ,almost any Laptop but it must have the RS 232 plug in's to it ,if not ,you wont be able to connect the scanner to it like it would be the case with the C3. The others are mostly wireless but still ,better to have it then not in case re programming is required .
