I am trying to get my wife a portable device, issue is she is diabetic and on an insulin pump. The pump currently connects to her laptop (ageing acer) via a usb thingy, the info from the pump does not stay local but get uploaded to www.carelink.minimed.com where it is made available as many different types of reports and graphs. The carelink website says their software will only work with
Windows XP/Vista/7, MacOSX 10.5 (Intel), MacOSX 10.6/10.7
IE 7/8/9 (Windows), Safari 4/5 (Mac OS), Firefox 5
128 bit key
800x600 or greater
8-bit colors or greater
Is there a way to run a full blown OS on a portable device, or do I have no choice but to look for a new laptop?
