    I am planning to buy a new laptop soon. I already own a powerful desktop that is about a year old and does everything I need it to do.

    I have a full-time job doing SEO work, and I am planning to pick up The Best Spinner, SENuke X, and Scrapebox. I want to install these tools on my desktop and laptop.

    Will the cheapest new laptops I can buy (even netbooks that cost $250) run programs like SENuke X, or will I need a more powerful laptop to run these programs?

    I've heard these programs use a lot of resources, but I want to make sure I can run them from my laptop if I'm away on a business trip. I could also see myself running these while working on other projects on the desktop computer.

    I should also mention I'm not planning to run them all at the same time!

    Go for at least 2 gigs of ram + 250HD that's a minimum.

    To be honest, you should just rent a server. If you like to be connected on the go, buy cheap laptop or a netbook.

    Well for 250 Gig HD and 2 Gigs of RAM it looks like I could get that for $300.

    Man I an going to sound like a complete Newb, but I've been in this a few years now. I don't completely understand getting the VPS.

    I understand it is a private server that I can buy. I'm guessing that means I could buy a server and install all of these programs and run them directly from the server from any computer. Is that correct?

    Where would I go buying a VPS, and how much would that cost?

    Exactly.

    A dedicated computer is a computer with its full resources, dedicated to only you. When you buy dedicated servers, theyre will be specs of the server such as i3/i5/i7, how much ram, hd space, blah blah. And its basically like your own computer you get to run 24/7 without paying electrcity, or worrying about heat.

    A VPS is a virtual private server, this mean, they took a dedicated server, and split it up into private servers, each with a specific amount of resources dedicated to it. On VPS' there are other people running on that same dedicated server, but you get your own private resources.

    Theres lots of cheap VPS', I recommend you going to WebHostingTalk and checking out their dedicated/vps hosting offers section, thats where alot of the reputable companies advertise.

    I run all of those on my year old $300 laptop (Presario CQ62). I also run them on my old ass laptop (Satellite r25).

    You could run them on pretty much anything but you may have to scale back the threads.

    if you want these to run while you are traveling, I would think something like this service might be a better idea (no personal experience, just an example): http://www.xrumerservers.com/xrumervps.html <- special VPS for this type of program.

    The speed of the internet connections you will be using while traveling would likely make these programs choke.

    .... and I see now that you haven't actually purchased the programs yet, which makes the above VPS an even better deal...

    Now I see why VPS is a good idea. The internet connections in many hotels is HORRIBLE!

    You can sit there for five minutes waiting to pull up your email. I'm going to look into VPS so that I can run them on my desktop, laptop, and computer at my job.

    I'm having some issues with my new SEO job. They want me to do everything manually, and I don't think I am going to get the results I want if I do it this way.

    I've been submitting the same article to about 10 article directories and web 2.0 sites. I think I am going to get these tools installed on a VPS and start nuking the crap out of all of these pages so the main sites will start getting traffic.

    It looks like the cheapest VPS I can get is $3.75 per month. The specs are as follows:

    BVPS1
    Normally $3.75/mo
    Disk Space: 5GB
    Bandwidth: 200GB
    Dedicated Ram: 128mb
    Burst Ram: 256mb
    1 IP

    All I want this for is to run SENuke X and other tools from my desktop, laptop, and computer at my SEO job.

    Will this be enough Ram just to run this, or should I get something much more powerful like this:


    Advanced VPS
    200 GB Disk Space
    2560 MB RAM Guaranteed / 4096 MB Burstable
    3000 GB Transfer
    2 IP Address
    $26.35/mo

    The RAM obviously is much faster here, but will it make that much difference with SENuke X and other tools?

    That should be fine running them individually, not sure if you were running Senuke X + scrapebox though...

    I just reviewed this website mentioned in this post. Just so I understand, are they saying for $69.95 per month I can have all of those tools to use? That seems like the best deal to me. I don't understand SENuke though. I thought SENuke was much more expensive.

    Either get a VPS or install RDP on your desktop and run them from there.

    That's my understanding (big savings over buying these programs outright, yes SEnuke alone is like twice this amount).

    One thing about the VPSs you are looking at - I think you have to make sure you are looking at windows VPSs, I think most of these programs don't run on linux. And you have to be sure that running these prgrams wouldn't be against their TOS, some hosts might get upset about it.
