    VCDS laptop/Tablet Recomendations

    I'm thinking of getting a VCDS dedicated laptop/tablet but the choice is massive. I like the Lenovo X201 and the Asus Transformer T100 but always open to other options. I'm wondering what everyone else is using or would recommend for the task of VCDSing.

    Randomly trying things and stuff with VCDs and the car I started looking at the measuring blocks. I noticed something that does not look right to me. First off. What is at -40.5 degree? Should the lambda sensors all be at 99.9%? Anyone else not got the label file for 01 - Engine?
