Thought I’d start a thread to offer people an opportunity to share their experiences with a hardware for SambaPOS. And since I smelt it, I dealt it… I’ll go first
I’m running the SambaPOS 5 and have been enjoying the flexibility of the software and the seemingly endless hardware possibilities to match it with.
In a cafe application, I’m current running:
i7- 4000 series laptop - Win 10 server
10" Asus Transformer - Win 10 Cash
8" no name tablet - Win 10 orders
7" no name tablet - Win 10 kitchen - for monitoring orders - also taking orders
I’m wondering what users’ experiences have been with the alternative hardware configurations. I love keeping it all in Win 10, but updates are a pain. And if I could find a way to pause the updates, I’m not sure I would as I’m running all the machines with firewalls down. It’s behind a decent router that I can flash firmware updates on, but the security of it all concerns me.
How have people’s experiences been with the new Android app? Has it been a worthy successor to RDP? Does it really require 2g of ram on the android devices?
