For me with APCC, ACP Expert, MaxIm, FocusMax, and the rest of the automation software/hardware and weather stuff that may be pushing it for me but then again I often over do the specs to be safe.

I use a MiniX Mini PC that works well. The specific model I use is no longer made, but they have a newer one:
Amazon.com: MINIX NEO J50C-8SE, 8GB/240GB Intel Pentium Silver Mini PC with Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) [Dual-Band Wi-Fi/Gigabit Ethernet/4K @ 60Hz/Triple Display/USB-C/Auto Power On/Vesa Mount] : Electronics
Works really good, but the one thing to keep in mind is that it really wants a 12v regulated power input. If the voltage is too high, it wont turn on.
I run Voyager, SkyX, APCC Pro, PHD2, and my AGO Thermal Control software on it no problem. This one has a better processor than mine as well. The Win 10 Pro they include is authentic as well, which can be a challenge from some Amazon mini-PC products.
If you decide you want more RAM or storage you can upgrade it. 8GB of memory and 240GB of storage should be plenty though, IMO.

I’ve been using a 2021 i5 Mac Mini (headless) mounted to the pier running windows 10 for some time. I think I paid like $250 (used price) a while back. It’s got a built in power supply but in theory it can be converted to 12v supply. Mainly chose this hardware cuz I had it in inventory.
