laptop that allows SAS University Edition visualisation

Dear Board

 

I am keen to install the SAS university edition however the visualisation tools returns the error

SAS University Edition - Launch Error (VT-x is disabled in the BIOS)

that has been discussed on these boards

I think Acer laptops such as mine do not allow the BIOS option to turn visualisation on

My question arises as I intended anyway to buy a second spare laptop and would be keen that that one would allow me to use the SAS University Edition,

Can anyone please recommend a good cheapish laptop that would allow this. I'd like an rdinary one (not one that doubles as a tablet or uses cloud storage or anything "modern" ) and I wouldn't need it for gaming or anything flash - just office, email, the internet and a bit of stats etc software. But I'd like to use this excellent free SAS to improve my rusty skills

eg there's a candidate list of cheap laptops at pcadvisor found via a google eg th

Toshiba Satellite CL10-B-100 or the Dell Inspiron 11 3000

 Does anyone know if either  of those allow SAS University Edition visualisation perhaps via an easy change in the BIOS

sorry for such a long winded question - I hope its appropriate for the list and many many thanks in advance for any suggestions

Re: laptop that allows SAS University Edition visualisation

Hi, instead of purchasing a new laptop, you could use the University Edition in the cloud on the Amazon AWS or you could get a SAS OnDemand for Academics individual learner account and use SAS on the SAS cloud. Neither of these solutions use Virtual Machine technology because you use a web browser to access SAS on a server (which means you will need an Internet connection).

If you explore these sites, you will see other options:
---Amazon AWS http://support.sas.com/software/products/university-edition/faq/AWS_or_download.htm
---SAS OnDemand http://support.sas.com/software/products/ondemand-academics/#s1=2

brilliant thanks Cynthia thats really helpful

I had actually looked at the AWS option before but it seemed to require a credit card (albeit with a free year) - I've got SAS Studio which is the second option working now brilliantly

thanks again (I'd still like to buy a new laptop though [☹] )
