Has anyone attempted using MidiTzer 216 on a system using the Chrome OS?

I realized after posting that that's a vague description. Here's a link of the HP Chromebox I am referring to.

I haven't tried a Chromebox but I doubt it would run the Miditzer. The Chromebox allows you to "access your favorite websites and Google Chrome apps." The Miditzer is not a Chrome app. Notably missing from the Chromebox description is "Windows apps."

I'm not sure what you are looking for but a low cost WIndows tablet might be something to consider.

Thanks Jim,

I was looking for a small footprint PC that would run two large monitors, on multi-touch and the other rotating for my Music Reader application and have reasonabley good sound generation to the theater system I use. I am currently using two ACER R1600 Revo PC's that I brought up to date with new HDD and WIN7 PRO. They have the Atom CPU and are rather slow but work. I have looked at several HP MINI desktops but price is higher than I would like. I am considering making a Mini using a very small case and ASUS ITX mobo which prices in about the same as the chromebox with the same size profile. Again the processors are fairly slow.

Was hoping the chromebox might have some potential.

Not any important subject or project for me at the moment.

I am working with the upgraded console with thumb pistons and HP TS23 all in one but it is too bulky for longterm the the reach to use touch is quite awkward. Great idea if I were building a brand new console but I am not ready for that.

Too much winter time on my hands! :D

Thanks again

Ted Zick
