Hi Bill,

We have interfaced a 750 with a laptop for inclass demonstrations, and have
had great success. We use a SCSI, and I would definitely recommend this,
especially if you are planning to use the fft or oscilloscope displays. I
don't trust my recall to be completely accurate, but I believe that we had
to request the SCSI cable in addition to the interface. I don't think the
interface came with the SCSI cable. Hmmm, but our laptop did not have a
SCSI port, so we definitely had to purchase a SCSI PCMCIA card. You might
want to check your laptop.
